It's pretty exciting for Ocean County and when I write "BIG", I mean big.

This complex seems to have something for everyone.  There have been rumors for months about the shops and entertainment coming to this area.  Soon we'll find out what actually ends up at this location.

We now know the time frame that Adventure Crossing will open.

If you haven't heard about Adventure Crossing USA, it's going to be an amazing entertainment complex right here in Ocean County. It will be over 300 acres of entertainment including an indoor sports complex, outdoor fields, Top Gulf, tons of eating places, bars, laser tag, and so much more.

In the last couple of weeks, local sports teams were using the baseball fields and the track, it was great to see on Adventure Crossing USA Facebook page.

Just to name a few entertainment features inside this huge complex - a premier basketball arena, VR (Virtual Reality) arcade room, a cigar lounge, rock climbing, and so much more. I can't even believe it, when it's done it will feel like a whole city with so much fun in the middle of it.

Update on Adventure Crossing USA in Jackson, NJ, opening.

Adventure Crossing USA is set to open in the Spring of 2022, just a couple of months away. There are a couple of restaurants open right now - Taco Bell and Popeye's - are both open.

I'm so excited about this "giant" complex. It looks like it will be a lot of fun and if the rumors are true, could we be getting a Cracker Barrel here? More updates on that and if we finally are getting one in Ocean County.

LOOK: See America's 50 Best Beach Towns

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
