The South New Jersey Shore is a part of this famous stretch of coast that would appeal especially to families, with traditional resorts boasting pristine white sandy beaches. There’s so much to do around South NJ Shore holiday villas, with all the vacation amenities you could possibly require.
A great destination for a South NJ Shore vacation rental would be Cape May. This resort is found at the southern tip of the eponymous cape and is known for its quaint shopping streets, sublime beach and laid-back atmosphere. The town was established in colonial times and was settled mainly by whalers, but towards the end of the 19th Century it emerged as a holiday getaway of choice for Philadelphia and New York residents. Today it’s one of the top holiday destinations in New Jersey, with a wealth of different activities on offer, including whale and dolphin spotting, fishing, kayaking, jet skiing and parasailing.
A little further up the coast and another appealing South NJ Shore holiday rental location is Ocean City. This is also a popular family-friendly resort, known for its long boardwalk, which extends for two and a half miles and features a range of attractions, shops and restaurants.
A short drive up from South NJ Shore vacation accommodation is the world-renowned holiday resort of Atlantic City, which is famed for its beaches, nightlife, entertainment and legalized gambling. There’s a four mile-long boardwalk here, which is the oldest in the country. At Steel Pier, along the way, you’ll find a amusement park offering a range of different sideshows and rides.
The city of Philadelphia is within easy reach of self-catering holiday villas on NJ South Shore. This city played a vital role in the establishment of independence, and is home to the iconic Liberty Bell. There’s a thriving arts and music scene in the city, with world class museums, performance venues and theatres, as well a wealth of options for nightlife and dining.
From May to September you’ll most likely experience warm, sunny weather if you visit a South NJ Shore vacation rental. The hottest months are July and August, when temperatures occasionally reach the low-30s. Winters are cold here, and daytime temperatures rarely get above five degrees in January and February.
If you’re travelling from the UK then the best way to get to South NJ Shore self-catering vacation accommodation would be to fly to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) from London-Heathrow (LHR) via British Airways.
