The Oceanfront is just the start to this exciting resort town. For fitness junkies, there’s a 3-mile strip along the boardwalk just for joggers. Enjoy an early morning run as you watch the sun rise over the horizon. As the morning gets later, more people begin to flock to the sandy shore. Beach towels and umbrella dot the beach with color. Take your family for a ride in a surrey, or just hit the water to swim, surf or soak. The beaches are as wide as football fields, allowing room to play a game of catch or join in on a game of beach volleyball.

Fireworks displays are a regular occurrence throughout July and August, and there is always live music and entertainment to enjoy. Want a romantic getaway?
