Families considering booking a beach house vacation rental this summer are typically looking for a fun and exciting place to enjoy surf, sand, and sea. While there are countless international destinations that are more than ready to meet those requirements, vacationers don't need to go too far to enjoy world-class beaches, as thrill-seeking families can find plenty of fun in the sun at Surf City, New Jersey.
Located on Long Beach Island off the Jersey coastline, Surf City is an amazing beach destination that more than lives up to its name. With beaches available on both the bay side and the Atlantic, there is a destination available for travelers of all types. Calmer seas produce a more relaxed atmosphere on the bay side, while surfers and more active travelers tend to litter the Atlantic Coast.

The park has everything that kids could want, from an exciting arcade featuring all of the latest video games to some of the most thrilling carnival rides of all, like the Dragon Coaster, The Scrambler, and The Tea Cups.
