Tuckerton is the nation's third port of entry, conveniently located for Atlantic City and Long Beach Island. Tuckerton is rich in maritime history and has many great museums including the Tuckerton Seaport and various marinas. Water sports and fishing are popular here, and over in the nearby New Jersey Pine Barren, visitors can hike, bike, and take part in eco-tour adventures.
Visitor's first stop should be the Tuckerton Seaport Museum, a replica of a maritime village with the aim of preserving the history of the Jersey Shore Baymen. Here, you'll find historically-accurate replicated buildings such as the Tucker's Island Lighthouse, Tuckerton Yacht Club, Joy Dayton's Sawmill, Parson's Clam & Oyster House, and more.
Other museums include Tuckerton Historical Society Museum, the Watermark Art Gallery (displaying a collection of local artists), and the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve (which features excellent programs and presentations throughout the year on a variety of wildlife and sea related topics).
Water sports to enjoy in Tuckerton include boating, jet skiing, and fishing. To explore on dry land, there are trails to hike at the Bass River State Forest and the Pine Barrens.
Summer is probably the most enjoyable time to be out exploring the area with pleasant, dry weather.
