The Quiet Fishing Town In New Jersey That Seems Frozen In Time

New Jersey is home to a charming historic fishing village that few know about. It’s somewhat of a local secret, but it’s time for all New Jerseyans to enjoy it. A visit here is almost like stepping into the past.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

If you’re looking for something new to do in New Jersey, I’d definitely recommend taking a day trip to Viking Village. Visit throughout the year at 19th Street and Bayview Avenue in Barnegat Light. For an extra special experience, take an educational summertime dock tour or visit in late November to see Santa Claus with the kids. For more local secrets in the Garden State, check out this historic cemetery that’s now a community gathering spot.
