Beach town: The country-style village of Bay Head has several small shops for gifts, cheese, home-made candy and several clothing boutiques. There are a few restaurants in town or in the nearby adjacent town of Point Pleasant . There is a bay where children go crabbing and twilight lake where the ducks live offers a beautiful sunset -- practically guaranteed. An easy walk to town or the lake. Even the train station is in walking distance, maybe a 10-15 minute walk.
Activities: Nearby trips to the Pine Barrens, Point Pleasant amusement park and boardwalk and another one in seaside heights. For larger entertainment for children and family there is a great adventure in driving distance. While the village has maintained its old character and limited big box shops there are several in driving distance - home depot, bed, bath and Beyond, Loews etc. Popular activities are biking, skateboarding or rollerblading, walking along East Avenue - where the public dominants the streets more than the cars.
