Long Beach Island is a more than just a favorite summer vacation destination for folks that love the Jersey shore. It is also memories of summers past, and what those mean about the promise that next summer may hold. LBI is driving over the causeway, smelling the bay and feeling your body slipping into that relaxed "I'm at the beach" state.
But let's deal with the tangible first. Wide sandy beaches. Friendly and laidback seaside communities. The cool sea breeze. All these things and more mean LBI is a great summertime escape. And it is all found within a few hours drive of NYC and Philadelphia. It is no wonder that the small towns that are scattered along the 20 mile long barrier island have hosted some families' summer vacations for generations. People return to Long Beach Island year after year because it is a special place.
This website is here to help you find what you need to know about "LBI" - information about the beaches, accommodations, places to eat, where to have fun and more. You can plan your next visit or, if you are already in town, use the site as a guide in helping you find your way around.
Since the island is large this website has to be a bit expansive to try to tell you all about everything you can find on LBI.
