Morey’s Pier & Beachfront Water Parks open Easter Weekend

It’s no surprise The Wildwoods, NJ was Named the best seaside amusement park in the world by Amusement Today. For as long as I can remember The Wildwoods have been a summer destination for our family and so many of my friends. A visit last year after a many year hiatus reinvigorated the love we had for the amusements up and down the boardwalk. The name synonymous with the Wildwoods is Morey’s Piers & Beachfront Water Parks. They’ve been a staple to the shore since 1969 and still going strong.

The 2016 season starts with the grand opening of Mariner’s Pier on Saturday, March 26 and annual Easter celebration on Sunday, March 27.
Families are invited to hop over to the pier starting at noon on Easter Sunday for special activities including pictures with the Easter Bunny from 12:00pm to 3:00pm at the Parents Pavilion located behind the Carousel. Children 12 years of age and younger can pick an Easter egg for a chance to win an assortment of fun prizes, ranging from stuffed animals and Curley’s Fries buckets, to one-day pier passes and water park passes.

It was a Pirate Kinda Weekend #tuckerton

Consideration for this post was provided by Real Mom Media. Opinions expressed here are my own.

This past weekend was a fun filled Pirate themed event for us. Tuckerton Seaport & Baymen’s Museum in Tuckerton, NJ hosted the Privateers & Pirates Festival.

All Things Pirates! Learn the difference between privateers and pirates and then be one. Pirate history – authentic and make-believe – plus a treasure scavenger hunt, costume contest and pirate craft activities. Enjoy the crew of the Valhalla Pirates with historic pirate entertainment.

The day started with some rain showers and clouds but stayed perfect for the rest of our adventures. The Museum went all out with the theme and pirates and wenches could be found at every turn. The kids were able to “Walk the Plank” create their own Parrot craft and touch a sea star.

The Valhallas Pirates are always a hit too. The characters and their elaborate show and costumes draw in the audience all day long.


The museum is home to 17 historic and recreated buildings that are rich in maritime heritage. Tuckerton, NJ became a port of entry into the United States and the museum is home to many artifacts and documents and research of the tradition of the Jersey Shore. Museum programs offered include hands on activities, workshops, tours and classes taught by Jersey Shore artists.

All season long the Tuckerton Seaport & Baymen’s Museum welcomes visitors through their doors just so they can continue the work of restoring and remembering the history of the community. Becoming a member and visiting throughout the year is a great way to show your support and ensure quality wholesome family fun right in your backyard.

We are Jersey Shore visitors but this was our first time at Tuckerton Seaport & Baymen’s Museum. We hope to visit again and again.

A Perfect Beach Day

Our weekend was spent “down the shore” thanks to Rob’s participation in Bike MS City to Shore. We greeted him at the finish line and immediately headed to the beach.  The weather was gorgeous; the sun was shining and there was a great breeze as we got closer and closer to the boardwalk.  I figured the water would be too cold this time of year but brought the sand toys for the kids to play and build and dig.
It only took Shaun a couple minutes and he was in the surf.  The day was perfect.
