* A rich history. Barnegat used to be a leading seaport in the area, specializing in ship-building, glassmaking, and fishing. Today, the community honors the past with an active and exciting historic district, where you can enjoy parks, shops, antique centers -- and even a historic ice cream parlor.
* More than 6 miles of waterfront, including a public dock, boat-launching facilities, a boardwalk, bathing beach, fishing, and crabbing.
* A thriving business community.
* Only 60  miles east of Philadelphia and 90 miles south of New York City.
* Don’t miss the annual Pirate Festival, which was featured in the Spike TV show, “1000 Ways to Die,” about unusual deaths. According to legend, a sword-swallower died trying to swallow an umbrella.
* Easy access to the Garden State Parkway and major state and county highways.
* Various options for camping, such as Brookville Campgrounds, a full-service campground.
* The Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and its pristine marshes. A great place to bird-watch.
* Ample unique shopping opportunities, including  Angela’s Carousel Collections (antiques and crystal chandeliers); Bay Avenue Antiques; and Unshredded Nostalgia (a metro-style poster gallery and antique shop).
* Many ways to get on the water, such as Barnegat Township Boat Ramp or the Barnegat Township Public Dock (with crabbing and fishing). You can also rent kayaks at Meadowitch Park and take kayaking lessons and tours through New Jersey Kayak.
* The Ocean County Library offers many exhibits, discussions, and events. 
* The Barnegat Lighthouse, on the northern tip of Long Beach Island, which has been called one of the most crucial "change-of-course" points for coastal vessels. Today, you can check out the park as part of a maritime site on the New Jersey Coastal Heritage Trail.
