Memorial Day Weekend is just a few weeks away, can you believe it? So let's talk about the best "family-friendly" beaches here in the Garden State.

So what do you think of the list of TOP 10 Best Family-Friendly Beaches in New Jersey? Looks like a nice list to me. I may have broken down Long Beach Island because there are several beaches within the entire Island. Beach Haven, Ship Bottom (Our Beach), Surf City, etc. The other beaches in the TOP 10 all look good. As I have said before, we have some of the best beaches in America right here in New Jersey so putting together a list is easy when you have so many beautiful places to choose from. Check out the "beach badge" prices for Ocean and Monmouth Counties above. There is a link to other beaches around the Shore as well.
