NJ Beaches for Summer


With the sweltering hot weather settling in, nothing compares to a nice dip in cool water. If you are looking for a day trip or something beyond your usual beach spot, there are several great beaches around the New Jersey and not too far from us here at Gaslight Commons! Take a look at this beach guide and see where you can adventure too for some sand and sun this summer.


Sea Bright: About an hour away from South Orange, this local beach is a nice spot if you are not up to a far drive out to Cape May or LBI. They are open Monday through Friday and host special events throughout the summer. They also have a farmers market where you can do some shopping if you need a break from the sun, or as you leave the beach. You can visit their main website to learn about all of their amenities!


Belmar: Just over an hour from Gaslight Commons in Monmouth County, Belmar Beach is another great spot if you are looking for a day trip this summer. With almost a mile and a half of beach to enjoy they offer umbrellas and chairs, concession stands, cell phone stations as well as water stations and much more so guests can enjoy a day of sand and sun!
