Visit New Jersey’s Iconic Judge’s Shack Before It’s Washed Away

New Jersey is home to a variety of world-class destinations…Liberty Science Center, American Dream, Cape May, and more. Still, some of my favorite destinations are hidden gems. While the Judge’s Shack in Island Beach State Park may not bring in tourists, locals love it. It’s a Jersey Shore icon but it’s in danger of being washed away.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

While the inside of the Judge’s Shack isn’t open to the public, you can learn more about it on guided tours of the park. You can also take a little peek inside by watching the fascinating video below put together by New Jersey State Parks.
