There is so much more to do at the shore than fun in the sun; There are awesome restaurants, vineyards, and weekly fireworks! In addition to playing on the beach or the bay for the day, these are a few places and ideas that are worth checking out “down the shore” this summer!

Down The Shore? 5 Must-Do Fun Things

Try Some Really Good Food

Nothing Like Boardwalk Pizza in New Jersey

If you are looking for casual or elegant, the south NJ shore points have a lot of options to offer! A casual Ocean City, NJ essential stop is Manco and Mancos Pizza (pictured below) – this family tradition has been in the business for over 50 years! Or if your palette is craving a more sophisticated experience, try Angeline at the Borgata. This spot was new last year, but it is already a mainstay! Which is not hard to believe, as it is the brainchild of Iron Chef Michael Symon.

Catch A Sunset

And Bring Your Wine Too!

We already know Jersey has some of the best sunset spots around! If you are looking for a great spot with a sunset view this summer, check out Sunset Pier (a BYOB) in Sea Isle City or Luciano Lamberti in Margate! Insider tip: make a reservation!

Beach Yoga

Stretch It Out, After A Long Night Out

Yoga is good for the mind — and your beach body! There are some awesome drop-in gyms and fitness studios that offer everything from Hot Yoga to Acro Yoga! Also there is beach yoga offered in most shore towns, Avalon and Sea Isle City to name a couple! Or if you are feeling more adventurous try SUP Yoga in Stone Harbor.
