Day Trip Ideas:
If You Have Kids
Don’t forget the bathing suits, towels, and sunscreen! There are bay beaches for the littlest ones and for bigger kids, the guarded beaches are always a great idea too. If staying on land is your forte, there are mini golf courses and ice cream places everywhere! Many ice cream shops are becoming more privy to common allergies and have more choices without dairy, gluten, eggs, or nuts. Just ask, they might have what you are looking for! Tip: If it is raining, we have many museums, arcades, and a library too!
If It’s Just You & A Friend
You can climb the lighthouse together, walk along a nature trail, shop at boutiques, take a surfing lesson, rent bikes (or a surrey!), grab a bite to eat, hit happy hour, and watch the sunset. LBI is double the fun when you bring a friend!
If You Just Wanna Relax
Take a day at the beach! Beach rentals (umbrellas, chairs, etc.) are available in almost every town from local businesses. Single day beach badges can be purchased from beach badge checkers on the beach. Seek either far end of the island for extra peace and quiet.
If You Want To Do (Almost) Everything!!
Pick a couple of towns along the island from each end, park somewhere in each of your picks, and walk. Walking is the best way to really see LBI. Challenge yourself and your group to capture pictures of each water tower you pass. And if you don’t get to it all… you’ll just have to come back!
