Location


 

Townsends Inlet
Townsends Inlet is located on the barrier island of Ludlam Island. It is considered an “unincorporated community”. This is similar to Strathmere, which flanks Sea Isle on the north end of the island. Townsends Inlet is locally referred to as “TI”. It is very much a tight night community. This part of town has one stop light, a tiny non-denominational church, a country store and a couple restaurants. Townsends Inlet still represents small town America. Life is slower here than in Sea Isle City proper, where bustling Landis Avenue in the summer season – particularly on weekends – is lined with parked cars and gridlocked intersections. With a 25 mile an hour speed limit and a law requiring motorists to stop for pedestrians in the many crosswalks that are found on Landis, it is hard to get anywhere quickly at the height of the summer season and, in fact, can at times feel like midtown Manhattan at rush hour. But going south, you find a different atmosphere – at around 80th Street, Landis dwindles to a laid back stretch of roadway. That is because travelers who do not live or stay here come through for one of three reasons: to dine, to go to the waterfront park or keep driving out of town over the bridge to Avalon. But now, with the development of new commercial attractions, people will have more reasons to stop in TI.

Sea Isle City

Families have been visiting Sea Isle City since the late 1800’s. From the beach to the bay – and everywhere in between – Sea Isle City truly offers something for everyone. In addition to enjoying the sandy beaches and abundance of water sport, be sure to stroll along Sea Isle City’s oceanfront Promenade, which runs from 29th to 57th Street. The Promenade is home to shops, eateries, arcades and many places to sit and people-watch – or simply take-in the fresh salt air. Also, be sure to explore nature at its finest at Townsends Inlet Waterfront Park, located at 94th Street, where you can watch pleasure boats sailing by, surf-anglers catching dinner, families playing in the sand, and colorful sunsets lighting up the early evening sky.

Avalon

Avalon has been a popular vacation destination for beach lovers for over 100 years. Located on the Seven Mile Beach, sharing the island with Stone Harbor to the south, this island offers a unique charm that you won’t find anywhere else.

 

If hitting the beach is your idea of a vacation, you’ll fall in love with the white-sand beaches, touched by the Atlantic Ocean. Or, maybe when you need a break from the sand and sun, Avalon’s downtown shopping district has everything you need including high-end boutiques and retail stores featuring clothing, shoes, accessories, beach toys, books and much more.

And the fun doesn’t end when the sun goes down. Plan a night with the family including several mini golf locations throughout town. Be sure to experience one of the many popular restaurants as well as the nighttime hot spots – from places to dance the night away to smaller venues to sit and chat with friends - Avalon has it all.
