Restaurants
1. The Hook

Disappointed - came to here to prove all the other 88 five star ratings wrong - Nope! This place is awesome! Small restaurant with Glenn and the crew...

I've wanted to stop here for years. Every time we leave the Borgata and do a Yelp search for breakfast, we always already just passed this exit on our way...

3. Biggy's Beach Grill

If I could give six stars, I would. We've continually found LBI restaurants to be satisfactory but not special, and we were looking to try some seafood for...

Golf
1. Charleston Springs Golf Course

This is part of the Monmouth county courses and in my opinion it is by far the best. Many people will say hominy is better but I would disagree....

The greatest miniature golf course on the planet. My father has been playing since he was five years old. I have been playing since around that age as well....

3. Twisted Dune Golf Club

Pretty course. Many of the waste areas are for aesthetics. The fairways are wide then narrow near greens. Wayward shots of any kind are gone. Don't spend...

4. Scotland Run National Golf Course

Excellent course. Definitely on your must play list. Challenging, scenic, & all around, nice course. Great restaurant after the round.

5. Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club

Played the bay course on 5/17/16. Great layout. Fast greens, some with pretty severe undulations making putts very challenging. The fescue near some...

Active
1. Island Beach State Park

I love island beach state park. I was almost hesitant to write this review because I feel like it's a hidden treasure and I don't want everyone to find out...

2. Freedom Park

I went here very early on a Sunday morning with a friend and both of our dogs. Everyone we met was very friendly and happy to give us a tour of this vast...

Long Beach Island is a place I've vacationed my entire life. It's a family beach, and aside from the scattered locals and retirees who live here year...

4. Storybook Land

I took my son here for his second birthday, and he had so much fun! The grounds are beautiful and very well kept. We came on a hot July day, but thanks to...

5. Ocean City Bicycle Center

This place was great. We had 25 people including kids and they hooked us up quickly with surrays so we could take a family bike ride on the boardwalk. It...

Arts
1. Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival

Last year a late snow storm made us late for the event. This year a fire adjacent to the Parkway and an accident brought traffic to a crawl. This just...

2. Valenzano Winery

Don't miss this winery! Excellent customer service, excellent wine, tasting is free with purchase and they are not stingy with number of tastings. Very...

Haven't been to the actual Vineyard but I saw them at the Monmouth race track yesterday for a wine tasting and not only were all the wines so delicious, on...

5. Sharrott Winery

Although I do not drink wine, I decided to put together a group of friends and do a private wine tasting at Sharrott. The young lady on the phone was so...

Shopping
1. Coach Factory Store

Great customer service and the lines go pretty quickly even though it can reach all the way outside. The store used to be incredibly busy all the time,...

Oh my goodness! What an absolutely adorable store. They have a little bit of everything: home decor, kitchen/serving items, clothing, jewelry, bath...

3. Target Stores

Excellent customer service at this location! Like Charlee said if you can't find it at Target you don't need it. This place really does have everything you...

Great book store and in a great location. I loved coming here to study and get a cup of coffee. They have a huge selection of Funko Pops, which I adore, and...

5. Nike Factory Store

One of the best Nike Stores I've been to! Usually can find good deals from 20-30% off. I would prefer going on the weekends, but it does get busy.... Other...

I had the opportunity to go back to Cloud 9 this weekend and took it. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Megan was still working there. I had a 90...

Walking distance from my brother & sister-in-law's beach house, this is definitely my go to spot for vegan snacks while down the shore. I was there twice...
