Avalon is "Cooler by a Mile", and it’s not only because the island extends out into the ocean further than other NJ barrier islands. Avalon is widely heralded as one of the best beach towns in New Jersey and is the vacation spot for generations of families. The beautiful white sand beaches are the main attraction, but there is something for everyone in Avalon. After soaking up the sun all day, the shopping district serves as the perfect late afternoon activity with as simple as the legendary Hoy’s 5 & 10 to the many unique specialty stores that meet even the most discerning tastes. There are restaurants for family dining or an intimate night out for two. For the sport enthusiast there are multiple recreational facilities and water sports of every kind. Perhaps you’d enjoy a quiet repose while you admire the sunrise over the Atlantic or the stunning sunsets across the bay. This picturesque community is the perfect place to start making your family memories.
