Hello KG Crew, happy Thursday! If you have been following along with our Instagram, this week we were road tripping on the Jersey Shore bringing you guys our best recommendations at our favorite shore towns! We hope you were able to join us, but if not no need to worry because today I’m going to recap & give you our favorite stops at each of the beach towns we visited. Always remember, when visiting somewhere new these days, to bring your mask and follow proper social distancing rules. Here’s our list of covid-friendly, must see’s and must do’s at the Jersey Shore!
- Cape May – Hit the beach at Sunset Beach
Cape May, NJ, the nation’s oldest beach resort town, is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. One of our favorites is Sunset Beach. It is on the west side of the island, which makes it one of the only beaches on the East Coast where you can watch the sunset over the ocean! How cool! It is also home to a sunken ship & pretty white collectible rocks called “Cape May Diamonds.” This is definitely a stop you won’t want to miss!
- Wildwood – Rent a bike & ride along the boardwalk
Wildwood, NJ is known for its world famous boardwalk. There are miles of pizza shops, boutiques, amusement piers, & so much more! Every morning on the boards you are permitted to ride your bike until 1pm. It’s so much fun to ride around, see all the sights, & maybe even stop for your favorite snack. So grab a bike & we’ll see you on the boardwalk!
- Ocean City – Support local business & grab dessert from the Bashful Banana
Okkkk ladies and gentlemen, this is for sure one of our OC favorites! The Bashful Banana! It is a bakery that serves up food and yummy deserts all day long. You can get anything from veggie lasagna to a vegan muffin to a tasty frozen dessert. Our recommendation is to get their “Banana Whips,” which are a frozen treat similar to ice cream but made with all fruit & natural ingredients. They even have chocolate fudge that’s made with only agave and cocoa powder! So healthy and so delicious – you guys have to try it!
- Long Beach Island – Visit Barnegat Lighthouse
Barnegat Lighthouse is a staple stop when you visit Long Beach Island. The lighthouse is located in Barnegat at the very end of the island. It is so cool to see up close and there are beautiful grounds you can walk around it with water views, nature trails & sandy shores. You cannot leave the island without seeing Old Barney!
- Stone Harbor – Take a Walk in the Bird Sanctuary
The Bird Sanctuary in Stone Harbor is an awesome day activity when you are looking to switch it up from the beach scene. It takes your breath away with the beautiful scenic pathways and the sound of the birds chirping all around. It is so fun to get lost in these travels, escape into nature, and maybe even have yourself a little photo shoot! The sanctuary is located on the most southern side of the island and is certainly worth traveling to!
