Ocean County is home to one-third of the fabulous Jersey Shore--44 miles of the Atlantic Ocean coastline with sandy beaches, inviting surf, fantastic fishing and great water sports.

Whether you want to relax at a hotel or motel, escape to a quaint B&B, rent a cottage or sand castle at the shore or be informal at one of dozen campgrounds, it's all here. And, we're within a two-hour drive of New York's Broadway, Philadelphia's Liberty Center , the excitement of Atlantic City and Trenton , the state capitol.
