One of the things that I love the most about Ocean County is the variety of ways that you can spend a nice day outdoors without going far.

And it really is a huge variety.

If you're an active person who likes to move, exercise, and keep going, there is no lack of places to enjoy a hike, run, or long walk.

If you prefer to take it easy but do it outdoors rather than on the couch, there are plenty of parks and beaches to relax at.

And there are also lots of historical destinations where you can get some insight and learn outdoors as well.

And of course there's shopping ,too. Sure, we have indoor malls, but there are also a lot of options for outdoor shopping as well.

Plus, we also have concert and sports venues right here as well.

So what's your favorite way to spend some time outdoors right here in Ocean County? Tell us your top choices in the comments section!
