Looking for a summer getaway complete with white-sand beaches, salty sea breezes and fun cocktails? The answer to your wish may be closer than you think.

New Jersey boasts 127 miles of shoreline along the Atlantic Ocean, spanning from Sandy Hook to Cape May. Each beachfront community offers its own local culture, and between them all, there is something for tourists of all ages to enjoy.

For those who may find renting a home for the entire summer season too expensive, weekly rentals at the Jersey Shore are a popular alternative. Many towns offer weekly beach badge rates in addition to daily and season badges, and often have discounted prices for children and seniors.

In the Borough of Lavallette, for example, weekly beach badges for 2014 cost $25. The tranquil northern Ocean County community is home to a mile-long boardwalk, and several newly rebuilt boardwalk pavilions offer beachgoers a place to escape the sun while keeping the ocean in their line of sight.

If you are looking for something with a little more action, the Borough of Point Pleasant Beach could be a perfect fit. The town, also situated in Ocean County, boasts a boardwalk, but guests will find games of chance, amusement park rides, bars, restaurants, an aquarium and more.

The borough’s public beach, as well as commercial beaches such as Jenkinson’s and Martell’s, offer daily and partial-season beach-badge rates in addition to full season badges.

To find out more about securing a weekly property rental in these Jersey Shore communities, contact local realtors such as Barefoot Real Estate, Crossroads Realty or RE/MAX Real Estate.
