AVALON & STONE HARBOR BEACHES REOPEN FRIDAY, MAY 22ND for traditional sunbathing in chairs or on blankets, and swimming in the surf. Walking, jogging, surfing, and fishing have been permitted since May 8th. Group activities and organized sports are still prohibited. Social distancing must be observed in all cases. Please check below for details on beach tags for both Avalon & Stone Harbor.
Surfers and joggers were among the first to return to area beaches when restrictions were eased a couple of weeks ago.
THE MARKET IS MOVING! After a slowdown during the first few weeks of April, market activity has resumed and there are currently 40 properties under contract in the local market! For a detailed look at the market see the latest Long & Foster Market Minute report below.
BEACH TAGS IN AVALON will not be required until July 3rd. Seasonal tags will cost $25 through June 30th, 2020; as of July 1st, tags will cost $30. The Avalon Beach Tag booth at 30th Street & Avalon Avenue will open for the season on Friday, May 22nd from 10:00am-4:00pm, and will remain open daily. Customers must wear masks to conduct a transaction and must stand six feet apart while in line. Mayor Pagliughi has also extended the mail-in program for beach tags through May 31st. You may send a check made payable to the “Borough of Avalon” for the number of tags that you wish to purchase at the $25 price. Send your check, along with a self-addressed stamped envelope to Avalon Tax Collector’s Office, 3100 Dune Drive, Avalon, NJ 08202 Attn: Beach Tags. You will be mailed a receipt for the tags that you purchased. At your convenience, visit the Beach Tag Booth with your receipt to pick up your tags.

CHARTER FISHING AND WATERCRAFT RENTALS resumed earlier this week, with new guidelines in place to enhance safety. Reduced capacity, electronic reservations/payments, and no sharing of equipment are some of the restrictions that charter operations will follow. Watercraft rentals are allowed to operate following a “curbside pick up” type of business model similar to other retail operations. Masks are required while aboard the vessels.
OUTSIDE DINING is still under consideration in many shore towns as a way to help restaurants cope with capacity limits during the reopening. Among the many proposals being considered are using sidewalks and parking areas for dining, and closing streets to expand dining space further.
DRINKS TO GO: Many establishments are offering “drinks to go” as part of their take out business. Even if you can’t sit IN your favorite restaurant, at least you can enjoy the food & drinks you love on your own deck or porch! If ordering takeout or curbside pick up this weekend, please be sure to plan ahead and allow extra time for your order!
MEMORIAL DAY is upon us and we’re looking forward to the first long weekend at the shore. Most Memorial Day parades and ceremonies have been cancelled this year due to the pandemic, but let’s all take a moment to reflect upon those who have sacrificed so greatly in order to preserve the freedoms we enjoy in our nation.
