Yes this is a post on the dreaded beach tags. I always feel bad for the big family that has never been to Ocean City and they come for the weekend and go to the beach only to be stopped by a beach tagger telling them unless they shell out a ton of money the beach is off limits. I see this happen a few times a year and it always makes me feel for them. After reading this post hopefully you will be prepared with all the info you need to buy your Ocean City NJ Beach Tags.

Ocean City NJ Beaches
Once you have your OC NJ Beach Tags you are ready to go. The beaches can be extremely crowded in front of the boardwalk. We tend to use the south end beaches where the crowds are a little thinner. Remember to pack a lunch and plenty of water. Here is a list of everything you should have when you plan a day at the beach.
- Small Cooler
- Beach Chairs
- Beach Wagon
- Beach Tent
We try to pack as light as possible when we hit the beach (which is usually every Saturday), especially if you have small children. After a few summers of carrying toddlers down to the beach we pretty muchhave it down to a science. A good rule to have with kids is that they can bring as many toys as they want as long as they carry them themselves. This helps lighten the load and frees up some much needed space.
