Surf City Travel Guide

Surf City, New Jersey is found in Ocean County and dates back to the early 1800s. True to its name, Surf City has a fantastic beach which draws many visitors to its waters year after year due to its beautiful views and fewer crowds. Families also like Surf City Beach because it's safe for children, the water is not too deep, and the sand is perfect for building sandcastles. The borough is also close to other beach towns, meaning there are many potential day trips from Surf City.

Things to Do in Surf City

In Surf City the best things to do, naturally, are at the beach. The beach is not only wonderful for relaxing, there are also plenty of great water activities. Hop on a fishing boat and head out to sea where you can catch fish and join tours around the area, or go swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, jetskiing, and paddle boarding on the water. It's also possible to rent equipment at the beach and take lessons if you're new to a particular water sport.

For indoor activities, head to one of the galleries and studios in town that display local art and crafts, or find a souvenir from your Surf City vacation at one of the antique stores. There is also a flea market once a month which is the best place to bag a local bargain! Once you've worked up an appetite, tuck into the fresh seafood served in the restaurants. There are tons of dishes to try, so make sure you arrive with an empty stomach!

Elsewhere, there are several golf courses across the city where golfers can practise their swing while overlooking the ocean. Afterwards, indulge at one of the spas in town -- most offer facials, massages, and have pools and saunas to complete destress.

For a small day trip, Beach Haven is only a few miles away and has exciting attractions like the Museum of NJ Maritime History and Fantasy Island Amusement Park.
