First-Time Visitor Tips for Traveling on July 4th
We suggest arriving on LBI earlier in the day, as incoming traffic can peak by late-morning on this popular holiday weekend. Even if your check-in isn’t until mid-day, there are plenty of things to do and places to eat on LBI. Public restrooms are available in each town as well.
LBI is a great place to exercise, so please keep an eye out for pedestrians, skateboarders, rollerbladers, and bicyclists when traveling on all roads. Live outside of NJ? Click HERE for a quick recap of NJ Pedestrian Safety/Crosswalk Laws and HERE for some answered FAQs regarding cycling in NJ.
If you plan on dining out during your visit, try to make a reservation, if possible. With recent dining restrictions, it may be easier to get a seat at your favorite spot if you call ahead. Also consider checking a restaurant’s social media platforms or website before arriving to get more info on what is available and how the restaurant is offering their services during this time (takeout, delivery, outdoor sit-down).
We are social distancing on LBI. Please wear a mask when in public spaces.
