Somers Point, New Jersey

Somers Point, which was originally known as Somerset Plantation dating back to the late 17th century is a small bayside community consisting of 4 square miles. It became a borough in 1886. Today it is a thriving city and is the portal to Ocean City with its great beaches and fun boardwalk. Somers Point is situated on the Great Egg Harbor Bay (named because of the large number of birds eggs found by early explorers) and because of this location, vacationers and residents can enjoy a variety of water activities. Boating, fishing and water skiing are among the favorites. Additional attractions include Kennedy Park overlooking the bay, public boat ramps, boat rentals, docks, excursions etc. all along the coast. Most residents and vacationers usually swim in Ocean City which is just across the new 4 lane bridge that links these two cities, however Somers Point does have a protected beach. On the other hand, most Ocean City residents and vacationers usually dine in Somers Point because it is not a dry town and alcohol is served.
