Hotel at a Glance: The Bentley Inn
Grab a seat on a wraparound porch at The Bentley Inn and you’ll feel ocean breezes wafting by. Walk just two minutes from the inn’s front door and you can dip in your toes in the Atlantic’s waters. Even after the weather cools and swimsuits get packed away, there’s still plenty to do at this charming Jersey Shore town. You can borrow a metal detector to search for treasures on the beach, or browse the many nearby antique shops for treasures of a different kind.

Bay Head, New Jersey: Quiet Town on the Atlantic Coast
Sandwiched between Barnegat Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, Bay Head is a family-friendly town on the Jersey Shore. In summer, out-of-towners from throughout the region head here to hit the beach or visit the nearby Jenkinson’s Boardwalk, which is a fun spot to play arcade games and zip around on carnival rides. Take advantage of the bike-friendly setting by renting a cruiser from one of the local bike shops. Visitors who come in cooler months can still look for antiques and gifts in quaint shops and dine on fresh seafood at several BYOB restaurants.
