• Seaside Heights Beach & Boardwalk •

Touted as “Your home for family fun since 1913,” Seaside Heights is the ideal locale to ring in summer. With a beach sky ride, clubs, summer food, sand & surf, they are probably right. Its Casino Pier hosts a plethora of activities including miniature golf, arcades, and a water park. Go to Funtown Pier to ride rollercoasters, carousels and other rides with rippling waves beneath you.
Still not getting the picture? Seaside Heights was featured on MTV’s Beach House “Summer Share” in 1998 & 2002. It was also featured in “True Life: I’m A Jersey Shore Girl” in 2004.
