If you are looking for a fun workout how about a hike on one of our many beautiful walks here in New Jersey. This time around, we decided to show off Ocean city walk in Cape May County.
The Ocean City Boardwalk is 2.5 miles long. It is perfect for bikers, joggers and walkers. Lots of interesting sites along the route and you can even stop … More Perfect at this time of year because everything is now open for the summer. Now that we no longer need masks outside, you are free to enjoy the fresh, salty air. If you do decide to venture into a store, just keep your mask in your pocket and use it for now, until the ban inside is lifted.
Hiking the boardwalk doesn’t create much of a challenge, it’s flat hard ground … but it does provide some great scenery and NO BUGS! It’s insect season and I prefer to hit the spots during the summer, where I can walk in pieces without being eaten alive and avoid the dreaded ticks and chiggers. I know for true hiking purists this type of ‘urban’ hike might not be your cup of tea, but in the end we hiked about 5 miles, took some great photos and didn’t not bitten, I take it as a victory.
So if you are looking for great places to walk / hike in the summer check out some of our fantastic New Jersey walks. We will be visiting more in the coming weeks.
Check out photos from our trip south to Ocean City. By the way, Ocean City is a “dry” city and considered one of America’s best family-friendly beach towns.
