New Jersey Boardwalks
New Jersey Boardwalks are full of game stands, pizzerias, souvenir shops, beach gear stores, arcades and ice cream parlors drawing families, teenagers and adults alike. The Seaside Heights boardwalk is bookended by two 300-foot-long (91 m) piers that feature amusement rides, carousels, log flumes, roller coasters, Ferris wheels and more. One of these piers is the world-famous Casino Pier, home to a 1913 circa merry-go-round, the Niagara Falls log flume and the Jet Star roller coaster. The other is the Funtown Amusement Pier home to the Tower of Fear, Seaside’s tallest Ferris wheel and a go-kart track. Many of the businesses are still family-owned and operated and have been almost as long as the boardwalk has been around. – Wikipedia
The Jersey Shore Beaches
New Jersey doesn’t have the warmest beaches, the water rarely gets above 73F (23C), but they still get packed full of people for the Summer.
New Jersey Boardwalk Food
Food and games. That’s what you do on the New Jersey Boardwalk. Food is the same throughout all the New Jersey Boardwalks. Mostly specializing in Philadelphia and New York City favorites, which means Italian food. Get your NYC Pizza, Philly Cheesesteaks, Italian Sausage, Curley’s Fries, Ice Cream and Funnel Cakes.
New Jersey Boardwalk T-Shirt Shop
You may find it strange that we are highlighting a T-Shirt shop, but you now know that they are iconic at the New Jersey Boardwalk. Every year we went to the boardwalk we purchased a Jersey Shore T-Shirt. As a kid growing up in the 80′s it was the neon shirts that read, “Wildwood NJ.” Today you can find your typical Jersey slogans and New York and Philadelphia team shirts. Temporary tattoos and piercings are also very popular.
MTV Jersey Shore Cast Sightings
These days you can’t talk about the Jersey Shore without a reference to the tremendously popular MTV reality show, “Jersey Shore.” While visiting Seaside Heights, New Jersey during Independence Day weekend we saw several members of the cast on the boardwalk. Hundreds would swarm the stars, taking pictures and video with cell phones. Security surrounded them, attempting to keep order between the fans and those that just wanted to enjoy a stroll on the boards.
