I think I may be a bit bias lol but I do think New Jersey beaches are some of the best in the world. We have great beach sand, expert Lifeguards, and beautiful scenery. Jersey beaches are perfect for any family to visit and have a “kid friendly” vacation, whether its a long weekend or a two week getaway.
