    40 square miles that feel like your best friend's back yard

    Say hi to your new friend Tom(s River). Okay, he's not a person. He's a riverside township, but Toms River gives visitors the feeling that they're in a laid-back neighborhood rather than a bustling port town with a population of close to 100,000. Toms River has a community-oriented downtown, beautiful beaches, sunny parks with well-kept walking trails, and a proud history of patriotic heroism. Your Toms River vacation rental will be the perfect home base for your family, your sweetheart, or your nature-loving friends.

    Bays, beaches, and bonny views on the banks of Toms River

    You can't be this close to the water without checking out a beach or two, and Ortley Beach, across Barnegat Bay from the mainland, is the most popular in Toms River, with long sandy stretches perfect for sunbathing or a picnic. If your Toms River vacation rental is near downtown, you'll love the walking tour of local historical sites, including Huddy Park, site of the town's summertime Clamfest. For unspoiled views of Silver Bay, head to Cattus Island Park and its 500 acres of walking and hiking trails.

    Be inspired – by heroes of yore or wonders of the universe

    Toms River knows how to tell an exciting tale. Huddy Park, set just off the riverbank, is dedicated to the patriotic hero of the Revolutionary War, Captain Joshua Huddy, and signage through downtown helps visitors follow his troop's movements. The park features a replica of the original block house that was stormed by Loyalist armies in 1782. When you've wrapped up your tour through the past, look to the stars. The Robert J. Novins Planetarium offers views of the night sky and special programs to inspire both grown-ups and junior astronomers.

    Summertime perfection for 4 months every year

    The subtropical climate of Toms River means that the summers are warm and humid, with temperatures in the mid-80s, tempered by ocean breezes. Those ideal temperatures last from June through September, when Toms River is a popular destination for vacationers. The winters are chilly and windy, and it's recommended that visitors have an umbrella at the ready year-round. Festivities and farmers' markets take a break in the colder months, but hiking trails and parks are still in tip-top shape for those looking for a Toms River vacation rental at an excellent price.

    They could've called it Toms Bay, Forest, and Wildlife Park

    Most of Toms River is on the mainland, but it includes a portion of the Barnegat Peninsula, a long, narrow barrier peninsula that separates Barnegat Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. The river, the bays, the forests, and the wetlands make a home for local species of snakes, fish, and turtles. Hovnanian Sanctuary offers protection for plants like sandwort, swamp azalea, and sheep laurel. It's also a great place to spot rare wildlife species like the Pine Barrens tree frog, the eastern box turtle, and the American kestrel.
