Here Are The 11 Things That Are Forbidden On The Beach
Just last week we talked about the 5 rules of Memorial Day Weekend. Some of them were common sense and merely friendly suggestions, but others are indeed specific rules that could land you a ticket.
In addition to the rules in the photo above for Seaside Park, there are nearly a dozen specific things that are banned from the Seaside Heights beaches.
If you're keeping track at home, here they are in convenient list form:
Sure, it's nice to relax on the beach with a frosty adult beverage, but you'll have to keep your imbibing to one of the many bars and restaurants on the boardwalk.
It's not like there aren't ample choices only steps away from the sand.
There's actually room for flexibility on this one, at least on days that the township has scheduled ahead of time.

I love my dog and I love to take him along with me as much as I can. But one place that we have to leave our pets behind is the beach.
And don't even think about leaving them in the car in the middle of summer and saying that you didn't know that they weren't allowed on the beach!
This is another one that you can happily participate in during the dates that are scheduled ahead of time.

This is one that many people might not think of off the top of their head, but think about it - the sand is a perfect place for broken glass and other sharp objects to hide, just waiting for bare feet to come along.
In Seaside Heights, you can't fly a drone from the beach.
If you're a responsible drone pilot, you'll also know that you can't fly over crowds, so that rules out the boardwalk when it's busy.
Remember earlier how we talked about common sense? Well this is one that falls into the category of, "why can common sense be so uncommon sometimes?"
Some people think that it's funny to watch seagulls fight over and dive for food. But most of us think that it's disgusting.
But guess what else? It's also outlawed.
There's nothing quite like enjoying a day on the beach and breathing in the fresh ocean air.
Taking in a deep breath and expecting fresh ocean air but instead getting a lungful of someone else's secondhand smoke? Not cool.
I'll be honest, I didn't know that ball playing isn't allowed on the Seaside Heights beach.
Did you know? If not, well, that's why we're making this list!
This falls into a similar category as smoking. A lot of us go to the beach to enjoy the serenity and the sound of the ocean.
Hearing someone's loud music is just about the exact opposite of enjoying the serenity of the ocean!
