Come to Sea Isle City and you have your choice of beach experience. The city offers a mix between busier and quieter beaches depending on where you go. Beaches near the downtown John F. Kennedy Boulevard are busier and are along the city's asphalt Promenade, which makes for a nice walk with a stroller without getting sand in the wheels or in your shoes.
Beaches in the northern end of the city - near the border with Strathmere - are often quieter and less busy but are farther away from the city's restaurants and attractions.
Beaches in the southern end near Townsends Inlet have been hammered by winter storms. But Sea Isle City is expecting a beach fill soon between 73rd and 94th streets to stock about 700,000 cubic yards on sand on those beaches, making them significantly larger.
For attractions, Gillian's Funland of Sea Isle City opened a children's amusement park just off of John F. Kennedy Boulevard downtown.
Throughout the city, like in many shore towns, finding a good parking spot can be a hassle when it's busy. Be prepared for a walk to the beach from your car. The city has parking meters
The city has beach tags, but tags are not required on Wednesdays on any city beach.
