As Long Beach Island’s premier transportation company, Preferred Limousine & Car Service would like to welcome you to summer here on the Island.
Long Beach Island, known colloquially as LBI, is a barrier island and summer colony along the coast of Ocean County, New Jersey. The island is a very popular summer destination for tourists and residents alike due to its convenient location, unique attractions and endless activities.
Location, Location, Location
LBI is conveniently located within 1 ½ hours of major airports such as Newark Liberty, Philadelphia International and Atlantic City International. There are also many major Hotels, Motels and Resorts located on, or within a short distance of, the Island. And many residents and tourists regularly travel for pleasure to Atlantic City, New York City, Philadelphia and many other popular local destinations.
Preferred Limo Service (www.preferredlimo.net) is a local NJ company offering convenient, affordable and stress free travel services on the Island and all surrounding areas with fares similar, if not less, than most taxi or car services. As a local company, we would like to share some ideas we think you may enjoy while here on LBI.
For Beach Lovers
Long Beach Island is of course known for its beautiful beaches. LBI is the perfect destination to swim and ride the waves or just relax and work on your tan. And here’s a tip for you… the most crowded beach area on LBI is typically found at Holyoke Avenue in Beach Haven but if you go a little farther to the Island’s southern tip you’ll discover great waves and far fewer people.
For families with kids, try any of the beaches in Beach Haven or Ship Bottom. The beaches there are very long, clean and offer easy access to restrooms, food and water.
Two beach areas stand out for excellent surfing in LBI. Wooden Jetty in Holgate and Ship Bottom right around 28th Street. Wooden Jetty hosts an annual surfing competition and is one of the best surfing beaches on the Island because the long jetty promotes good rise to the waves allowing for longer runs. Ship Bottom is excellent because surfers can surf anywhere outside of the flags which means more ocean and greater distance between the surfers and also swimmers. The lifeguards at Ship Bottom are also very “surf-friendly”.
For the Young (and young at heart) – and it’s not just miniature golf!
Fantasy Island Amusement Park in Beach Haven is a must-visit destination while on LBI. The 25 year old Victorian themed amusement park offers rides and games for all ages and the Arcade at Fantasy Island is a great rainy day diversion
For water park lovers, visit Thundering Surf Water Park in Beach Haven. The park is perfect for all ages and includes six water slides, a “Lazy Crazy” river, a Flowrider and a “spray” ground for toddlers.
And don’t forget the Black Pearl Pirate Tours in Beach Haven! Awesome! The tour is a one hour interactive family adventure. Children get their faces painted and dressed up like pirates. Then it’s out to sea where the kids learn to talk, sing and play like real pirates before they battle Pirate Pete and fire fire high powered water cannons at their enemy.
History Buff Heaven
LBI is a wonderful place to discover the history that only the Jersey Shore can offer. Some activities for history buffs include:
Visit Barney. Who’s Barney? Barney is what us locals call the Barnegat Lighthouse which is an icon of the Jersey Shore and one of the most photographed structures in New Jersey. Climb the 217 steps to the top and enjoy amazing views of the Shore.
Take a guided walking tour through Victorian Beach Haven and learn about the gilded age of LBI. Offered by Long Beach Island Museum in Beach Haven http://lbimuseum.com).
Visit the Museum of NJ Maritime History (http://njmaritimemuseum.org) in Beach Haven. It’s a great place to explore the most extensive collection of maritime history and artifacts in New Jersey and learn about different ship wrecks and maritime disasters.
