7 Instagrammable Spots Down the Shore

By Claudia Langella | August 22, 2019 | Lifestyle

The Jersey Shore is a place where so many memories are made. From ice cream with friends to amusement park rides with the family, you’ll want to remember every moment. These seven photogenic spots down the shore are sure to liven up any Instagram post.

Barnegat Lighthouse


There are few things more peaceful than watching the sunset on a warm summer night down the shore. The lighthouse in Barnegat Light is the place to snap a picture of beautiful cotton candy-colored skies. 208 Broadway, Barnegat Light, NJ 08006, 609.494.2016,

Atlantic City Boardwalk


Atlantic City is known for its casinos, resorts and world-famous boardwalk. Stroll down four miles of the Atlantic City Boardwalk and stop at its famous sights, like the Miss America Statute, the Hard Rock Hotel’s larger-than-life guitar, and the staggering Ferris wheel, for endless Kodak moments. Atlantic City, NJ 08401,

The Water Club at Borgata


The indoor and outdoor pools at the Borgata are paradise. Lounge in style with private cabanas and an infinity pool. Lush greens and poolside bars make for a little slice of heaven in Atlantic City. 1 Renaissance Way, Atlantic City, NJ 08401, 609.317.1000

Sugar Factory


The food at the Sugar Factory is nothing less than impressive. Sip colorful cocktails spilling with candy and fog. Snap a picture of the rainbow sliders or crazy milkshakes. To get everyone around the table for a group snapshot, order the massive King Kong Sundae that feeds up to twelve people. 1000 Boardwalk Ave., Atlantic City, NJ 08401, 609.428.7751,

Beach Plum Farm


Cape May’s Beach Plum Farm is the perfect spot to spend the day. Bike paths and walking trails allow you to venture off into fields of lavender and other produce that’s sold in their market. The farm also makes for a wonderful wedding or dinner party backdrop. 140 Stevens St., West Cape May, NJ 08204, 833.327.6268,

Ocean City Boardwalk


The Boardwalk in Ocean City is fun for the whole family, offering plenty of moments to be caught on camera. Have orange sherbert at Kohr Bros. or head to Manco and Manco for a slice of pizza. For an adventurous picture, ride the Double Shot or the Scream Machine at Castaway Cove. Ocean City, NJ 08226,

Avalon 8th Street Jetty


At the edge of Avalon’s inlet lies the 8th Street Jetty. After relaxing on the beach all day, head over to the rocks and walk out to the ocean. The jetty is a great place to snap a picture of the sun as it sets on the beach. 8th St., Avalon, NJ 08202,
