The start of Daylight Savings may have coincided with frigid temperatures and a snowstorm, but believe it or not, spring is here. If you live down the Jersey Shore or are currently looking at Jersey Shore real estate to make a future, we wanted to provide a few activities you can do in the upcoming months by yourself, among friends, or with your entire family. As many of us already know, spring is a great time to be at the Jersey Shore.
Visit an Atlantic City Casino: No matter what the weather looks like outside, Atlantic City casinos offer a first-class experience inside. Obviously, there are a plethora of gaming options – from blackjack and roulette to slots and poker. However, gaming is only one part of the casino experience. There is the Immersion Spa at the Borgata, The Quarter at the Tropicana, comedy shows, music acts, and more.
Check Out the Absecon Lighthouse: Did you know that New Jersey’s tallest lighthouse is located right in Atlantic City? The Absecon Lighthouse stands at 171 ft., and it is open year-round. During the spring months, it is open Thursdays through Mondays from 11 AM to 4 PM, but please know that the last tour is a half hour before closing. The lighthouse still shines every night, and once you go up the 228 steps, you can get a spectacular view of the Atlantic City skyline.
Birdwatching in Brigantine: North Brigantine Beach is home to a number of species, including gulls, diamondback terrapins, sand crabs, minnows, and more. Although every species will not be around in early spring, spring is a great opportunity to check out Nesting Piping Plovers and shorebirds native to the area. The beach has a two-story viewing platform – perfect to check out the returning birds.
These are just a few of the many things to do at the shore this time of year. We didn’t really even mention the beaches, but if the weather is warm enough, a stroll on the beaches of Atlantic City, Ventnor City, Longport, or Brigantine is a fun (and free) option as well. We are a short few months away from summer but don’t forget about spring. Although the peak crowds come during the summer, a Jersey Shore spring is always great.
And if you are thinking about moving into the area, we would love to help you find a home. Contact the realtors of Soleil Sotheby’s International Realty to learn more about homes for sale down the Jersey Shore.
