Clean, Quaint, & Quiet: LBI is the Best Summer Destination for The Whole Family

Here are 4 ways for all ages to enjoy every inch of our 18-mile island…

We get it – vacationing with kids (and grandkids) can be hard. Trying to fit AND enjoy everything your family wants to do on your vacation, into the time you have, is a real feat. Whether you have one week or the whole summer, don’t get stuck choosing between the kids’ crazy summer “bucket-list” and a relaxing, uninterrupted float in the ocean. Do it all – we’ve got you covered with these 4 ideas.

1. Sign The Kids Up for Something They’ll Actually Enjoy

Local beach patrols have lifeguard-in-training programs, our community centers and libraries have various educational programs and clubs, and some local galleries have kids art classes – all summer long!

2. Shuttles = Island-Wide Accessibility

Our full-service system of shuttles runs across LBI, all summer long! Each ride costs a nominal fee and can take you any place along Long Beach Boulevard. Hop on – it’s great for visitors who can’t drive!

3. Family Day is Possible Everyday

Long Beach Island is all about fun. There are so many great summer activities for all ages: beach & bay days, boat rides, fishing, free concerts, nature walks, surf lessons, arcades, ice cream shops, craft shows, art galleries, and so much more. You can find great events and a directory on the LBI Chamber of Commerce’s Calendar here.

4. But Don’t Forget to Say Yes to Date Night!

Hire a local sitter and grab a cocktail before enjoying some of our amazing hot spots for dinner. Don’t wanna leave the kids at home? There are also plenty of family-friendly restaurants all along our 18 miles!
