VOTING IS NOW CLOSED. THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED TOMORROW AT NOON.
Cape May and Point Pleasant Beach each rode a wave of votes to reach this week’s Championship Round of New Jersey Monthly’s Battle of the Beaches, presented by Woodhaven Lumber & Millwork. Point Pleasant Beach won the North side of the bracket in last week’s voting and now goes head-to-head against Southern Shore Cape May.
Spring Lake and Beach Haven were eliminated in the latest round of votes.
Point Pleasant Beach and Cape May are blessed with family-friendly attractions and plentiful spots for shopping and antiquing. Point Pleasant Beach’s main attraction is Jenkinson’s Boardwalk, stretching almost a mile along the strand, with arcade games, an amusement park, a food court, concession stands, three mini-golf courses, batting cages, a 4,000-square-foot fun house and an equally fun aquarium. Cape May has drawn a crowd since “sea bathing” became popular in the 1800s, and still defines beach vacations today. Its collection of late Victorian architecture gives this National Historic Landmark town an ageless charm and its terrific dining scene adds to the attraction.
New Jersey Monthly selected 16 beaches to compete against each other in this four-week, bracket-style competition. Each week throughout June, we cut the field in half based on your votes. Now we’ve reached the championship round. The winning beach will be announced on this website on June 26.
