Welcome to This Week in Seaside Heights!
Each week through the fall, we tell you about fun events and activities in the family-friendly resort just across the road from Exit 82!
Each week, you can experience a diverse array of exciting events, including free concerts, bonfires, movies, camping, and more! And of course, let’s not forget the bay and ocean beaches, arcades, restaurants, games of chance, and Casino Pier & Breakwater Beach.
