Summer Beach Fun in New Jersey
With the hottest months quickly approaching, New Jersey’s shore towns are happily welcoming beachgoers from near and far.
In Avalon, the fine-dining BYOB Café Loren just completed a six-month full interior renovation that resulted in an updated, elegant ambiance for the popular eatery. Moran’s Dockside is renting out kayaks through Labor Day, both hourly and by the day, and Buccaneer Ice Cream and Candies recently reopened for the summer season, introducing four tempting new flavors: fat-free vanilla yogurt, caramel salted pretzel, campfire s’mores and banana nut chocolate chip.
Gillian’s Funland in Sea Isle City plans to welcome visitors starting in late June and Larsen’s Marina, which offers boat rentals and also houses a café, opened for the season in April. Housed in a beautiful Victorian-style building just one block from the beach and boardwalk, The Colonnade Inn is inviting guests to explore its newly redecorated interior spaces and giant wraparound porch.
In nearby Cape May, the professional equity theatre Cape May Stage celebrates its 25th season this year and will perform Lend Me a Tenor and Boeing Boeing in the coming months. The Cape May County Zoo recently welcomed two new snow leopard cubs and is challenging visitors to help choose the perfect names this summer. Meanwhile, inside the historic Caroll Villa Hotel, The Mad Batter restaurant is now serving up live music seven nights a week and has also broadened its vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free menu offerings.
