Stone Harbor Travel Guide
Right after our dip in the water
Right after our dip in the water
Pleasure Bay - circa 1930
Me and Tasha on the beach
Hang Loose parasail is the closest parasail company to Stone Harbor. Its located right out side of Wildwood, so you don't even need to drive into town. The place is really fun, we had a great time. The boat ride was really cool, we got to see lots of things that you normally...
Quite empty streets
The bussiest street is of course the 96th. If you go further from there, you might not even meet a single soul...
On the 96th street, at the Original Fudge Kitchens you can see the staff prepare fudge right in front of your eyes. The job seems to be tough, but the staff seems to be able to show some tricks for the customers.
Get there early for great ice cream
Springer's Ice Cream Parlor is usually crowded by about 6 PM most every evening in the summer. 47 interesting flavors, milkshakes and kids with freckles - all which vary according to the month and which fresh fruit is available. Been around since the 1920's.excerpt from...
Dolphins chasing huge schools of fish
On a good day, in August or Sepember, startling dark shadows move in the breaking waves. A ten foot column of fish is running in shallow waters away from dolphins, who troll the coastline in search of (dwindling) dining opportunities.::

Uncle Bill's Pancake House: Pancakes
It serves pancakes and other breakfast foods. This includes area foods like scrapple and pork roll. Sort of like an IHOP without the commerical look.
Banana Pecan Pancakes. This is the only dish I tried here. Not as expected. It was three plain pancakes with sliced bananas...
9812 (an address and a name): Seashore Nouelle
Hip place with a "proto-Dolche & Gabana" decor - lace curtains, dark corners, candles, raised platforms. Nothng can be too pretentious in Stone Harbor. Yes, BYOB - buy your own booze from Fred's Tavern, three blocks away.::
Warm hearted chef makes consistantly good food...
Fish Tales: All the good restaurants in town are BYOB
One of only three good restaurants in town, serving up no nonsense seafood and other entrees. Cloth napkins but still down to earth. Make reservations and expect to wait for ten minues anyway. BYOB - Bring your own booze.
Kushimbo Japanese Restaurant: Don't Miss The Fresh Seafood!
The only Japanese restaurant for miles & the food happens to be very good. The owner has a restaurant in Florida for the winter and spends his summers here. ::
Creative sushi dishes. Reserations required. BYOB - the Fred's Liquor Store is on the way.::
Bradley's: Best Cheese Steaks at Bradley's
The bread is the key factor that makes this the best "cheezasteaka" for miles around - a classic italian "hero" or "hoagie" roll. Real meat and cheefe. Call ahead to make your order, usuall ready for pick-up about twenty minutes later.::
Chicken Cheese Steak with a perfect...
The Windrift: Party on the Beach
The problem with Stone Harbor is that there is not a whole lot for two 21-year-old girls. So we decided to hit the Windrift...and we were the youngest things in there by about, oh 15 years or so. The staff is nice, the bands are usually good, and the DJ even played, "I Like to Move It, Move It" for me. We danced with the older guys and made their night. It was certainly a lot of fun, in fact we spent all weekend there!
Dress Code: Beach Bar clothes

The Original Fudge Kitchens: The best fudge
It's a tiny shop right in the middle of the 96th street. Very friendly staff is always ready to help. What is good, that they can mail your order anywhere in the US and even Europe and other continents.
Of course FUDGE. They have different kinds of it, and it's always fresh...
The Free Shop: a good eye for clothing
Good selection of urban and vacation clothes for women and girls. They also have a shop in Cape May. Very nice owners who bring current fashions from the city to the shore.
Shoes, blouses, baby-tee's, accessories.
Comfort is only steps away
A public restroom has been known as the "Comfort Station" for as long as anyone can remember. Located near the bottom of the landmark water tower on 2nd Avenue between 95 - 96th Street. Behind the beautiful Italian Renaisance style waterworks buiding.
The noon whistle
They used to bang on a big metal ring to summon the volenteer fire department. Then, when they changed to an air raid siren, they tested it at noon time every day but Sunday. The tradition carries on. You can hear it on the beach - time for lunch.
Broken chunks of "jelly babies"
At a certain time, later in the season, baby jellyfish get tossed in the surf and their stingers are floating everywhere. Babies cry, people curse, the sting usually goes away in five minutes.

Rapid aging at Henny's Restaurant
Hard to find a good restaurant in Stone Harbor. This establishment has been a landmark a long time and has never needed to upgrade. Sit down and watch the cobwebs form on your table as local blue hairs gather for the early bird special.
The long, oval bar may have some...
Do not exceed 32 miles per hour or you will have a swarm of jarheads around you in no time.::Avoid the SPEED TRAP at the Bird Sanctuary - 111th Street and 3rd Avenue.
Use cruise control between Stone Harbor and Avalon.
Enjoy the open road south, through the salt marshes,...
"Cape May Diamonds" are pure quartz crystals..."
Sunset Beach in Cape May Point, NJ
Remote beachfront on the Delaware River. Dig in the sand to pull up small crystals. Visit the deluxe museum shack. Marvel at the sunken concrete ship "Atlantus".
