Seaside Heights has been a tourist destination for decades.
It has the Barnegat Bay on one side of town, and the Atlantic Ocean on the other side of town. For an affordable summer weekend, stay at one of the motels near the boardwalk, such as the Surfside Motel or the Charlroy Motel located in nearby Seaside Park. Set your alarm clock early and walk a few blocks to the beach to watch the sun rise. During the day, lounge by the pool at the motel. At night, ride the Skyride, a slowly moving ride that lasts for approximately 23 minutes, and takes you on a quiet ride along the boardwalk. You and your loved one will be high above the noise, with views of the lights and people below, and the sounds of the ocean in the distance. There is a variety of dining options on the boardwalk, including sausage sandwiches, french fries, hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, ice cream and funnel cake.
