Last weekend our friend Jen was looking for some travel advice—she had to go to New Jersey for a family obligation, but she wanted to turn it into a fun getaway also. We talked about the Bungalow (too expensive), and thought about Atlantic City (too casino-y?)…but she found a better option, and I made her write it down for us!
” We had to go to visit family on the Jersey Shore last weekend, and the best part of the trip was staying in Ocean City. We stayed at the Impala Island Inn which was a block from the boardwalk, had a pool and was clean and affordable. The roller coaster was visible from our hotel room! We swam in the pool, ran around the beach, played video games in the arcades, hit balls in mini golf and rode many, many rides. We topped it off with some cotton candy and my kids slept the two hour drive back to NYC. According to my five year old boys, it was “the best vacation ever”.”
