While the crowds may be gone, don’t fret: October still has a lot to offer in Seaside Heights! Each week through December, we will tell you about fun events and activities in the family-friendly resort just across the road from Exit 82!

Need some ideas while you are in town for this weekend’s events? Why not start the day off with a stroll along the boards before hitting the beach for some rest and relaxation?

Before arriving in Seaside Heights, head a few minutes south of town in Seaside Park and stop in at Shore and More General Shore. Tell Dominick and Deborah you heard about their store here!

For lunch, your options are nearly limitless. A quick walk on the boardwalk will reveal mount-watering sandwiches, pizza, ice cream, and much more. How about some chocolate covered bacon or fried Oreos? You’ll find it here! The Casino Pier Arcade is also going to be open all year.

When it’s time for dinner, try Spicy Cantina on the boardwalk, and try to grab an outdoor table upstairs for sweeping views while enjoying a margarita and Tex-Mex fare.  How about crabs and delicious seafood? Head down to nearby South Seaside Park to Bum Rogers Tavern & Crab House. If you’re looking for fine dining with sweeping ocean views, head to Chef Mike’s ABG at the beginning of Island Beach State Park.

After dinner, there’s still plenty to do, whether it’s another stroll on the boards to walk off dinner, Casino Pier rides, and perhaps just people watching. If you’re in the mood for a few drinks and some live music, we recommend checking out JR’s Ocean Bar and Grill on the boardwalk (where you can also grab a late night slice of the world famous Marcua’s pizza).

Seaside Heights: Clean beaches that are continually voted some of the best at the shore, delicious restaurants, family friendly entertainment, and a boardwalk that will make anyone smile. 

“Your home for family fun since 1913!”

And now, this week’s events…
