Summer's Not Over Yet

Seems like only yesterday that Memorial Day Weekend kicked off the exciting summer season in New Jersey. Now, the days are getting a little shorter as fall inevitably approaches. But that doesn't mean the fun summer activities are over.

August and September provide plenty of thrilling activities and events, so guests can end the summer on a high note.

Beach Time: New Jersey is known for its beautiful beaches, stretching for miles down the coast and offering families fun, sun and surf, even in the late summer months. Cities such as Seaside Heights, Point Pleasant Beach and Ocean City, feature bustling boardwalks filled with entertainment, shopping and dining.

Amusement Parks: New Jersey has a wide selection of amusement parks that operate well into September. Morey's Piers, the largest amusement piers in the world, offer three piers with hundreds of rides, two waterparks, and a number of roller coasters. The piers operate from Memorial Day until the first weekend in September after Labor Day. Six Flags Great Adventure is America's largest seasonal theme park with more than 200 rides, the biggest drive-thru safari outside of Africa and one of the world's largest waterparks. The park operates from 10:30 am-10 pm everyday through Labor Day, and special weekend hours throughout September.

September Fests: The party doesn't end after Labor Day. There are a number of popular festivals to enjoy in the mild days of September, including the Atlantic City Seafood Festival (Sept. 13-14) and the Irish Fall Festival in North Wildwood (Sept. 18-21).
