Spring on Long Beach Island is a wonderful time of year! The beach badges go on sale, the boats start going in the water, restaurants open up and you can feel the excitement from everyone about the nice weather and upcoming beach days.
Spring beach days are some of my favorite days. It doesn’t matter if it is a little cool because the sand is nice and warm. It feels good to sit in the sand again. Depending on the winds, the beach can get quite warm in the spring. Although, everyone is anticipating summer, don’t forget to enjoy spring.
There are some events to keep in mind when planning your spring LBI trip.
