Forth of July


Nothing goes better with the Forth of July than a barbeque and a beach and the New Jersey Shore is no exception. With activities galore this weekend is more of a festival in most shore towns, but with so much to do where do you start? We have compiled a list of some of the Jersey Shore’s “must do” activities for the Forth!


1. Fireworks
What would the Fourth of July be like without fireworks? Most shore towns have displays on either the 4th itself or the day before. Generally fireworks are shot at nightfall on the beach and if you have a clear night sometime you are able to see all of the shows at once right down the coast.

2. Kite Flying Contest
Ocean City is home to one of the biggest kite flying contests in the country. If you are not flying a kite it is a spectacular site to see. People from all around the region come to fly kites as simple as the classic “diamond” to very complex multi-winged plains. A trip to this event will usually result in an entire roll of pictures!

3. Parades
The parades on the Fourth of July at the shore are hard to beat. Nearly every shore town has one or is close to another town that does. This is a great morning activity for the whole family, and a great place to go before the kite flying contest.
