Vacationing with kids (and grandkids) can be hard but Long Beach Island has a lot to offer for EVERYONE.
Trying to fit in AND enjoy everything your family wants to do on their LBI vacation into the time you have, is a real feat. Whether you have one week or the whole summer, don’t get stuck choosing between the kids’ summer bucket list and a relaxing, uninterrupted swim in the ocean. Do it all! Here are 4 ways for all ages to enjoy every inch of our 18-mile island…
1. Sign The Kids Up for Something They’ll Really Enjoy
Local beach patrols have lifeguard-in-training programs, our community centers and libraries have various educational programs and clubs, and some local galleries have art camps – all summer long! Some of these allow you to drop your kids off while others let you sit back and watch the fun!
2. Shuttles = Island-Wide Accessibility
Our full-service system of shuttles runs across LBI, all summer long! Each ride costs a nominal fee and can take you any place along Long Beach Boulevard. Hop on – it’s great for visitors who can’t drive or don’t want to worry about parking!
3. Family Day is Possible Everyday
Long Beach Island is all about fun. There are so many great summer activities for all ages: beach & bay days, boat rides, fishing, free concerts, nature walks, surf lessons, arcades, ice cream shops, craft shows, art galleries, and so much more. You can find great events and a directory on the LBI Chamber of Commerce’s Calendar.
4. But Don’t Forget to Say Yes to Date Night!
Hire a local sitter and grab a cocktail before enjoying some of our amazing hot spots for dinner. Don’t wanna leave the kids at home? There are also plenty of family-friendly restaurants all along our 18 miles! Be sure to make a reservation if you have a large party or plan on dining on a weekend night!
