Build a Sandcastle
Who doesn’t love playing in the sand? And what a great way to keep the kids busy while you enjoy a nice book on the beach.

The Life Saving Museum is a great spot to check out when you need a quick beach break.

Wave at the Webcam
A fun and free activity to involve your little one in! Call your friends and family back at home and tell them when to check out the Boardwalk cam online.
