BEACH CULTURE REDEFINED
Welcome to Southern Ocean County’s Long Beach Island Region, where beach
culture is redefined daily! This stunning area promises 18 miles of sugar
sand beaches, scenic landscapes, historical landmarks and old fashioned
amusements, along with visual arts and live performances. Our seaside resorts
and quiet bay front towns are the entry into the Pine Barrens.
Beach Culture Redefined means galleries filled with
local artisan works, one-of-a-kind fun and fine culinary
experiences and unique learning opportunities from handson
projects to cultivated lectures. Visual, performing and
culinary arts, as well as natural and sport activities highlight
the local color that makes every season of the year beach
season. Time spent here is the perfect opportunity to enjoy
the talent within our small businesses, which take pride in
what they do. Find one-of-a-kind boutiques, surf shops,
restaurants, bakeries and longstanding cultural groups that
help complete the experience. Don’t miss Chowderfest
weekend, September 29 and 30, named one of the top
food festivals on the East Coast.
Simplify, take some time to disconnect from the everyday
and connect with people and places that rejuvenate.
Beach Culture Redefined helps you find a new
perspective on our part of the Jersey Shore in different
seasons for different inspirations.
