I need a little help in planning a day trip to OCNJ. We typically do OCMD a couple times over the summer, but with the I-495 bridge closure, traffic is horrible. Went to OCMD the first week in June and it took 2.5 hours just to get to Wilmington! Love OCMD, but no way can I do that kind of traffic. We decided that we would plan a day trip to OCNJ as a test. We are looking for an beach area that is not overly congested, has bathroom facilities available and some place nice for lunch. A friend suggested that we look at 34th Street and up. Would also like to know if there are beach vendors renting chairs and umbrellas.
