The Jersey Shore is one of  the best places to hang out in the summer, for people of all ages (that includes families). There are many many beaches.

In addition to the sand and surf at Ocean City, you will find everything from resteraunts and water rides, to romantic beach houses and great shops. There are other beaches that have alot more stuff for the family: Wildwood, Brigantine, Atlantic City, and Sea Isle City. They are all equally fun, depending on what your looking for.

The best time to visit is anywhere from the middle of June until the beginning of September. Of course weekends and holidays like 4th of July and Labor Day will be the most crowded, but if you can get over that fact and keep your kids in close contact, you will have alot of fun.

So, if you're looking for fun in the sun and a great time for the family, go to The Jersey shore.
