Wildwood, Ocean City or Long Beach Island
We are planning on spending the weekend of Sept 14 at the Jersey Shore. We are looking for something fun and festive with a boardwalk and businesses that are open past Labor Day, and some night life.<BR><BR>What do you think would be best Ocean City, Long Beach Island or Wildwood.<BR><BR>Thanks

I've been going to Ocean City every year since I was 5 (I'm 29). It's a very nice area, especially if you have kids. Bear in mind, it's a dry town, but Somer's Point has the Circle Liquor store right across the bridge, if need be. It is definitely a very safe, quiet area, especially for kids. You don't have to worry about drunks coming stumbling off the boardwalk and bothering your children. If you're looking for a little more excitement, however, Wildwood is always a great place to go.

da gave a pretty good summary of Ocean City and Wildwood. Long Beach Island consists of several communites, but just about all of them are quieter and less busy that OC or Wldwd. I imagine that after Labor Day, LBI get really quiet.

Another option might be Point Pleasant, which has a nice beach, and a lively boardwalk with bars, restaurants, rides, games, etc.
