The Beautiful Jersey Shore
from Sandy Hook to Long Beach Island, the Shore Region is "Shore to Please", with its 127 miles of white sand beaches, a diversity of seaside towns, and a coastal heritage that is unrivaled.

The shore is known for its beautiful beaches, where you can build sandcastles, play in the surf, or enjoy surf fishing and the magnificent sunrise.

The Shore's silent sentinels-the Twin Lights of Navesink, Sandy Hook, Sea Girt, and Barnegat Light-are just a few of New Jersey's historic lighthouses. These majestic beacons tell the fascinating tales of bygone seafarers. Tuckerton Seaport, a recreated working maritime village, continues in this historic tradition. Allaire State Park is home to a restored 19thcentury village and Monmouth Battlefield State Park stands in honor of heroes such as Molly Pitcher.

For more contemporary adventure, Six Flags offers Great Adventure Theme Park with thrilling hightech rides, a Wild Safari Animal Park and Hurricane Harbor Water Park. Amusement parks dot the Jersey Shore with roller coasters, games of chance and great boardwalk fare, including cotton candy, sausage and peppers and of course great seafood.

Outdoor enthusiasts will also enjoy exploring the Sandy Hook Gateway National Recreation Area and the pristine beaches of Island Beach State Park. For horse lovers, Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport and Freehold Raceway offers top racing, while the Horse Park of New Jersey in Allentown attracts serious equestrians.

Catch the action at beautiful Monmouth Park Racetrack.

Music lovers have an unbelievable choice of venues from the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel and the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank to the Albert Music Hall in Waretown and the Great Auditorium in Ocean Grove, with its 9,000 pipe organ. The Surflight Theatre in Beach Haven delights theatergoers May through December. Lakewood's Strand Theatre and the Ocean County Fine Arts Center at Ocean County College provide a broad array of live shows for the entire family.

Shoppers will love the eclectic mix of shopping experiences including the colorful Englishtown Flea Market, the Six Flags Factory Outlet Center (with its 71 stores) and the handiwork of New Jersey artisans that is sprinkled throughout boutique shops and antique centers in towns like Keyport, Red Bank, Spring Lake, Point Pleasant Beach, Allentown and Long Beach Island. From fishing to sailing regattas, from surfing and lifeguard competitions to boogie boarding and kayaking, from gourmet restaurants to river boat paddle wheelers, the Shore Region is a pleasure that you and your family won't want to miss.
