Family Friendly NJ Resorts


Me & my husband are planning a trip to NJ in late September / early October with our 2 young children (2 years & 1 year old).

We're looking for advice as to whether any towns are particularly family friendly.

Many thanks in advance.

Ocean City would be the most obvious choice.

Beach Haven on Long Beach Island is also known as a family destination. It does not have a boardwalk. While I love the fall at the shore, many businesses start to close down (some open only on the weekend, some totally closed) in many communities.

Beach Haven has a well known Chowderfest and Merchants Mart, which keeps many businesses open into early October. It is generally held the first weekend in OCT, then with Columbus Day the following weekend, many stores/restaurants will stay open till then.

In October you might want to consider the northern shore, since we don't shut down like the southern part. Any town north of Pt. Pleasant is family friendly. And the boardwalk attractions in Pt. Pleasant will still be open on weekends.
