I want to thank Thomas, Sara, Kayla, and Courtney for all emailing me about Seaside Heights Boardwalk. Rachel from Waretown thinks the Barnegat Light House makes her feel most like a tourist every time she visits it. So many of you wrote about Six Flags Great Adventure, Pt. Pleasant Beach, Island Beach State Park, and more.

The boardwalks in Ocean County will always make you feel like you're on vacation all the time. It's one thing that represents, fun, family, smiles, and food - all things that make me feel like a tourist in my hometown. When I think LBI, instant vacation comes to mind. It's a gorgeous area of Ocean County for shopping, eating, and hanging out on the beach all day. Several friends love LBI and love going there for their "staycation". Every day is a "staycation" in Ocean County.
