Visiting Atlantic City & the Jersey Shore

As fall begins to give way to the imminent winter, Jersey Shore communities from Atlantic City and Pleasantville to Lakewood and Hazlet welcome visitors with a wealth of family-friendly fun. Special events, holiday celebrations, wine tastings, and more – there's plenty to see and do along the Jersey Shore this season.

Peak fall foliage may have come and gone, but there's still time to experience the beauty of the Garden State's eastern edge by embarking on a driving tour along the Garden State Parkway. Stretching from Montvale, in northern New Jersey, all the way to Cape May, at the state's southernmost tip, the scenic Garden State Parkway leads to countless attractions for day trippers to stop and enjoy.

Outside of Atlantic City in Absecon, the holiday season is already getting ugly. The 2015 Ugly Sweater Contest rewards the worst looking contestants while treating onlookers to live music and refreshments at the Absecon Lighthouse. The fun starts at 6 p.m. on December 5th.

Start off the New Year on a musical note, as Maestro Anthony LaGruth and the Garden State Philharmonic perform a fortune of festive favorites at Georgian Court University in Lakewood. New Year's Day with the Garden State Philharmonic starts with a special brunch at 11 a.m. on January 1st, with the concert starting at 12:15 p.m.

Even when temperatures are low, spirits remain high along the Pinelands Wine Trail, east of Williamstown. The scenic 65-mile loop traverses Wharton State Forest, leading to eight of the state's finest wineries, including Valenzano Winery, Burlington County's first winery.

On February 3rd, fans of fine fermentations flock to the 2016 At the Shore Wine Tasting & Art Show. It's an evening of wine sampling, art shows, live music, raffles, and more at the Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University in Atlantic City – not to be confused with the Stockton University campus in nearby Galloway. Things get uncorked at 5 p.m.
