Avalon and Stone Harbor Weekly Update December 22nd, 2016


BEACHFILL EXPECTED IN 2017:  Last week Avalon’s Borough Council approved a State Aid Agreement with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection that will result in a substantial hydraulic beach fill project for both Avalon and Stone Harbor in 2017.  Sand will be pumped onto Avalon’s beach from Townsend’s Inlet, and onto Stone Harbor’s beach from Hereford Inlet.  It’s hoped the beach fill project will be completed sometime in the spring, ahead of the summer tourism season.
Downtown areas of Avalon and Stone Harbor are decked out for the holidays!

IF YOU’RE HERE over the holidays, be sure to visit the business districts in Avalon & Stone Harbor.  Both towns are decorated with enough lights to make you feel like a kid again!  And if you need an activity for the family, consider visiting the Cape May County Zoo (open every day except Christmas), or take in a movie at the Harbor Square Theater in Stone Harbor—it’s open every day including Christmas, when four movies will be shown, including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story!

NEW YEAR’S EVE dining options on the Island include Fred’s Tavern (609-368-5591), The Princeton (609-967-3456), Bobby Dee’s Rock ‘n Chair (609-967-3300), and The Reeds at Shelter Haven (609-368-0100).  Be sure to call ahead for reservations!  If you’d like to ring in the New Year with fireworks, check out Sea Isle City’s family friendly New Year’s Eve celebration—a crystal ball drops at 7pm, and fireworks follow at 8pm, at JFK Boulevard & the beach (http://www.visitsicnj.com/featured-event)   .  Just a bit further north, Ocean City’s First Night begins at 4pm and includes concerts, comedy, amusement park rides, and fireworks at midnight(www.FirstNightOCNJ.com).

THANK YOU for making 2016 a great year!  I appreciate your business and referrals!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you & yours!  May the joy & warmth of the season be with you!
