  • Pee in a toilet !

    Lately the beaches have been building up. By building up I mean outdoor bathrooms. I found some today ( they're not on every beach ) that were handicapped. They were bright orange, and for some reason on the dunes! Which I am so against. But maybe they move them up there after hours , and move them back down during the day. Kind of funny that the...

  • Fishing on the beach

    Fishing on the beach can be fun because you never know what you're going to get. Just be sure to fish after beach hours ( 10-6 ) or in a designated fishing area, like by the fishing pier. Sometimes your hook can fall off in the ocean or sand and be harmful to beach goers . No one wants a hook in their foot:)

    more
  • Fishing Pier

    The fishing pier is free to walk on , to a certain distance , then you have to have a key to get past a fence . There is a day pass or a yearly pass I think . But basically you can buy a key that lets you have access to the pier and you can go fishing off of the scary tall edge ... Great if you like to fish ! A great family activity ! There is a...

  • Admire the local Houses/Landscaping

    Ventnor has some really beautiful houses! And they are all professionally landscaped (or at least thats how they look ) Perhaps they just have really attentive owners ! Back on topic, the houses are beautiful shore houses . Some vacation homes, some year round homes . Regardless they are worthy of a photograph to remember what you saw in ventnor !

  • Walk on the Beach

    Walking on the beach not only works your legs, but they say if you walk on the beach everyday (or every day of your vacation) you won't need a pedicure! This is because the sand exfoliates your feet , and the salt water heals any scars or anything bad on your skin ! The ocean is a natural healer! Enjoy!

    more
  • Collect Sea Shells

    When I go on vacation, I always want to save a tiny bit of sand, or some unique sea shells, I never actually do it because I always forget. But, even if you aren't going to bring them home, looking at sea shells while you walk on the beach is a fun activity. See hat kinds of shells there are native to this area, and maybe take pictures of them. I'm...

  • Surfing

    Surfing! What fun! Wish I knew how! HaHa... I watch people surf all the time, and I always wanted to learn, but I am just so scared of sharks.

Ventnor City Transportation

  • New Jersey Transit

    The bus is a great way to get around in ventnor. It can take you anywhere you want to go. If you're in ventnor you can hop right on the 505 going into atlantic city to the AC bus terminal and there you can go anywhere you'd like. It's inexpensive and I believe it runs every 30 minutes.

It is run by the city of Ventnor, and it operated by a very dedicated group of vounteers. This Senior Shuttle will pick up and drop...

Ventnor City Local Customs

  • April1985's Profile Photo

    by April1985 Written Aug 22, 2008

    The beach actually closes at 6, which means the lifeguards go off duty at that time. Us locals, don't really pay attention to that. Even if the beach is "closed" to us, it's always open. But just remember, if you're going to swim after hours, I advise you are a reallllllllllllllly good swimmer ... because it turns into a swim at your own risk kind of thing. Be very careful , the ocean is very powerful !

Bunch of dinner theater rejects who claim they'll teach your little darling magic, yoga, Broadway show tunes, ballet, and zumba! zumba! zumba! What a mess. Believe me, the "teachers" here...

  • Sly Pru-Foxes

    Don't buy or sell with Pru-Fox. This group of realtors is the most arrogant, dishonest bunch around. It's "sales professionals" made big bucks with little or no effort during the recent run-up in house prices and now rely on fraud rather than hard work to keep those 6% commissions coming. Don't take my word for the types who work out of this...
