Wow! What a wonderful treasure this Park is to NJ !! We started out at the Visitor Center, where we collected maps, some history, and a few tips from the extremely helpful people who work there.

Island Beach State Park has always been one of my favorite spots to go, whether it be on a cool fall day just to walk the trails and admire nature or in the middle of the summer for the ocean and beach.
Stopped at one of the car parks and walked up the wonderful beach which was clean and beautiful with seabirds everywhere, warm clean water and sun - what else do you want!!

Turtle Back Zoo West Orange
We are nature and animal lovers so we all really enjoyed seeing and learning about all the animals.
It was a little chilly but worth it to be able to enjoy the park the way we did and also get through at a leisurely pace in about 2 hours.
If you love nature and birds... be sure to visit Cape May during the Bird Migration... the meadows and the trails along the way provide exceptional views of the birds.
Excellent Nature Walk with pathway to beach, Excellent Birding
