“7 Quaint Coastal Visits On The Jersey Shore,” written by Melissa Klurman for @TravelAwaitsNow. See our FB page for the full article!
Take a break from fun in the sun to explore New Jersey’s rich maritime history at the Tuckerton Seaport & Baymen’s Museum (@tuckertonseaprt). Located on Tuckerton Creek, it’s a quick ferry ride from #LongBeachIsland and offers easy access to the Atlantic Ocean. The town was once an active fishing port; today, it has found new life as a sort of living history museum focused on the town’s seafaring past. The 40-acre village includes 17 recreated historic buildings including a sawmill, decoy carving shop, and sea captain’s house. You can also take in the views from a nearly mile-long boardwalk. #Tuckerton is great to explore in the off-season, too, since the buildings are open year-round.
Pro Tip: If the seafaring history has inspired you to take to the water, @CaptainMikes Marina offers boat rentals, including Carolina skiffs, pontoons, and kayaks, plus fishing and crabbing gear.
*PRO TIP 2 (UM EDIT)* When you’ve worked up an appetite on the Barnegat Bay, be sure to stop by #TheUnionMarket at #TheTuckertonSeaport for juices, smoothies, espresso based beverages and an all day breakfast/lunch menu. There’s even a florist onsite – follow @EastlinFloralDesign for popup details!
