Spring is here, and that makes some of us happy enough to do cartwheels on the beach!
BEACH TAGS AVAILABLE ONLINE! Avalon and Stone Harbor beach tags are now available for online purchase! Tags have been traditionally sold only in person, or payment could be mailed in advance, with tags to be picked up in person. Many have asked for the ability to order tags online, and that option is now reality! Tag maker Jersey Cape Tags has partnered with Avalon and Stone Harbor to offer seasonal beach tags from each town via their online store.

WORLD WAR II ORDNANCE FOUND: two unexploded artillery shells were found in a back yard in Cape May. Local police and fire departments secured the scene, while the Atlantic City Bomb Squad was dispatched. Bomb squad technicians removed the ordnance and safely detonated it on the beach. Cape May played an important part in monitoring the coastline during World War II; the lookout tower on Sunset Boulevard and the remains of the gun embankment on the beach near the Cape May lighthouse are two prominent reminders of the role the city played in protecting the coastline, and the entrance to the Delaware Bay.
