Make memories in Middletown

A charming township on the Jersey Shore, Middletown offers some of the state's best-loved recreation areas and a wide variety of attractions. Whether popping over on the Seastreak from Manhattan for a weekend break or traveling from further afield to enjoy a longer stay, Middletown vacation rentals place you in the heart of it all. From lazy days spent enjoying soft-sand beaches and lush green spaces to action-packed outings to the area's theme parks and speedways, you'll find there's no shortage of ways to make magical memories with family and friends.

Find the best beach days in Middletown

Jersey Shore boasts more than a few sun-soaked beaches and Middletown is no exception. While it can be tempting to simply settle back to appreciate the fine weather, there's a bit more to it. With surf casting from the pristine 7-mile Sandy Hook Beach and catching a glimpse of nesting birds along the Seabright beaches all on the menu, topping up your tan may just have to wait. And if you're keen to get out on the water, you'll find everything from sailing to fishing charters readily available from the lively Sandy Hook Marina.

Enjoy family time in Middletown

Life in Middletown may well be centered on the beach but venture inland and you'll find attractions aplenty. The classic carousels and boardwalk fare at the Keansburg Amusement Park have been entertaining families for over a century, although if you fancy dialing up the pace, the Runaway Mine Train and Dare Devil Dive thrill rides at Six Flags Great Adventure will help you do exactly that. An evening spent at the PNC Bank Arts Center or the landmark Count Basie Theatre is a lovely way to round things off before heading back to your Middletown vacation rental.

Soak up the summer sun in Middletown

Middletown beaches are perhaps best enjoyed in the summer when temperatures during sunny days in July and August can easily top 80 degrees. Spring and fall also offer decent weather that's perfect for exploring Huber Woods Park or visiting hotspots such as the Sea Girt Lighthouse. Just mind that big-ticket attraction closures don't ruin your plans for a family day out. Snow is likely over the winter months and increased wind speeds blowing in across the bay means that seafront walks can be brisk and probably not all pleasant for the particularly faint of heart.

Explore glorious green spaces in Middletown

Beach days will reign supreme during any stay in a Middletown vacation rental but be sure to check out some of the area's glorious green spaces too. With its bird-filled oak-hickory forests, activities centers, and hills that beg to be rolled down, Tatum Park is a great spot for family-friendly adventures. Meanwhile, on the Sandy Hook barrier spit, nearly 300 acres of pristine holly forest is waiting to be explored by nature enthusiasts, though before you get there, be sure to see if you can glimpse any harbor seals basking on Skeleton Hill Island.
