So you’ve made it to the beach, but the forecast is filled with rain. Don’t worry! There are plenty of things to do in a beach town to keep the whole family happy if the beach isn’t possible.
A great thing to do indoors is to see a movie. So many new blockbusters are out for the summer and there’s something for everyone. Plus, who doesn’t love a warm bucket of movie theater popcorn?
Another option is hitting the outlet shops for some great bargains. Atlantic City has the Tanger Outlets right in town and the Jersey Shore Premium Outlets are further north near Ashbury Park. Both offer a good range of stores for everyone in the family and nothing beats outlet prices!
Even though it’s raining outside, many boardwalks still have open arcades and amusement activities throughout the day. Check the boardwalk closest to you to see if there’s an arcade to play games at or even a mini golf course. Everyone loves a round of skee ball or whack-a-mole and maybe you’ll even get lucky and walk away with a prize as a souvenir of your day!
Rainy days are also great opportunities to stay inside and be with your family. Watch a movie, do a puzzle, or play a board game. There’s plenty to entertain a group of people and it doesn’t take much to get the whole family laughing. Pictionary or Charades requires few supplies but provides lots of fun. Card games only require a deck of cards, which are widely available, and board games can be played over and over. It’s a great way for the whole family to connect on a rainy day.
Although rainy days can put a damper on the vacation, they don’t have to ruin it at all. There are plenty of fun options available for everyone to entertain themselves when the weather is undesirable.
