Cause down the shore everything’s alright


The Jersey Shore is alive and kicking.  Not to mention we are stronger than ever!

We have been working so very hard to make your trip down the shore as exciting as you remember in years past.  Our beaches are open and ready for you.  The landscape may have changed slightly, but not our determination.  We are still here and we want you here too!

Hotels are staffed and awaiting your arrival, restaurants are bringing out their best summer recipes, the boardwalks have been replaced, the amusement rides have been repaired and the game vendors have all the stuffed animals your kids can desire.  All we need to get our summer started is you!

Take the familiar ride down the parkway.  Feel the excitement as your destination exit comes into sight.  And when the kids ask from the backseat “Are we there yet?”  Without hesitation, you can say, “Yes!”

Welcome back to the Jersey Shore!!!!

Go Green and Be Seen at the Belmar St. Patrick Day Parade


It’s that time of year again for Belmar’s Annual St. Patrick Day Parade. This year it is set for Sunday, March 4. Start time for the parade is 12:30 on Main Street, but it is highly suggested to arrive prior so you can secure an excellent viewing spot as well as a parking spot for your car.
Since 1974 this parade has been hitting the streets and each year the spectators increase. Join the locals and the not-so-locals at the parade of the year! This year the parade’s Grand Marshal is John Carr and the Grand Deputy Marshal is Jane Catherine Guild. Wonderful bios about both of these honored folks can be found on the Belmar Parade Website.
Firetrucks, Marching Bands, Cheerleaders, Bag Pipers and more. You will see it all! Grab your green and be seen, but only at the Belmar St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Not Irish? Not a problem…. Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!
Make it a Family Sunday Funday! After the parade’s conclusion, visit the wonderful eateries in Belmar, then take a trip to Point Pleasant and visit Jenkinson’s Aquarium.
