Family Vacations should be Fun for All
Vacation planning parents always ask themselves, “What is there to do?” Everyone in the family has different interests, according to their age and their idea of fun. Long Beach Island is a terrific family-friendly destination because there are things to do for the whole family, like going to the beach or spending a day at the amusement park. Plus, you’ll have many nearby options in downtown Beach Haven if you want to split up for a time. Long Beach Island is a place that your whole family will enjoy.
First step: Deciding on LBI Hotels
The best decision you can make when planning a trip with your family is picking the right hotel. If your hotel is nice and clean and it’s centrally located, that’s a plus! The best LBI hotels have plenty to do onsite. Do your kids like to swim? Are your teens always hungry? Do you want a quiet night in a comfortable bed? Make every minute of your vacation count by choosing a hotel that offers more of what you want.
Explore LBI Hotels for Kids
For the young’uns, choose a hotel with a huge, well maintained pool to romp around in. Spend the extra money for a hotel that’s right on the beach, because you will be back and forth, and back and forth. Building sandcastles, splashing in the surf, chasing birds and crabs is a great way for kids to enjoy the beach. Pick a hotel that’s close to the best amusements for kids, like Fantasy Island Amusement Park. They will enjoy rides, arcade games, and more. The park has free admission which is perfect for the adults. The average ride will cost between three to four tokens. Just in case your little one needs a chaperone, it is only two additional tokens for the chaperone. And when the kiddos start to get whiny and hungry, the food is reasonably priced and served in cool looking beach pails. After a long day of fun at the beach, rides at the amusement park, and swimming in the pool, you might want to wind down the day with an evening cruise on the Black Pearl. This will be a highlight your family vacation adventures. Dress like a pirate, talk like a pirate, and enjoy drinks while the kids fire up the water cannons- it’s truly an activity for that the whole family will love.
Find LBI Hotels that are Great for Teens
For teens wanting a little independence, pick a hotel close to the surf shops and beaches. Long Beach Island is the perfect place to try out a new water sport and develop some skills! Maybe your teen would like to go jet skiing, kayaking, or surfing. For many of these activities, an adult will need to sign a consent form. The businesses that offer these activities have trained instructors with years of experience who will teach your teens about ocean safety. Beach Haven Water Sports is located right in LBI’s activity hub. If your teen wants to spend some time with the family, stop in one of the surf shops to pick up a skim board. Skim boarding will keep them occupied for hours while you soak up the sun on the beach.
Relaxing LBI Hotels for Mom and Dad
For tired and weary mommas, a luxurious hot tub or Jacuzzi soak is in order. Nothing melts the stress away better. There are local yoga studios around Beach Haven to stretch the muscles, meditate and enjoy some serenity. You can even practice sunrise and sunset yoga on the beach for a really relaxing experience. Shopping, for most women, is another stress reducer. Beach Haven provides a wonderful “small town feeling” in its charming shopping district. Pick a hotel that’s close to these hot spots.
If you and your significant other enjoy live music, check out LBI’s free concerts at Bayview Park. Just bring a blanket, towel, or chair and enjoy a date night under the stars. It can be a romantic time for the two of you, even if the kids are dancing around in the grass nearby.
For the overworked and stressed dad, you’re need a sleep-friendly hotel with the perfect solutions to help send that stress sailing. Going fishing might appeal to the dad who wants to relax, and there are plenty of charter fishing boats and public docks on Long Beach Island. Crabbing on the bayside is a fun family activity- every kid should get to try this at least once!
