    Enjoy the Holidays at the Historic Smithville

    Take in the adorableness of Historic Smithville, located in Southern New Jersey. Smithville is composed of a collection of quaint wooden clapperboard-style houses, local shops, and restaurants. Smithville has a rich and vibrant history, from farmers fighting the British for their land to tales of the infamous Jersey Devil and his sightings at the swamps. November in Smithville means Fire on the Lake at the beginning of the month and the Holiday Light Show at the very end of November. It also means visiting the Talking Christmas tree, plenty of opportunities to get your Christmas shopping done at the 70+ shops, and about 7 taverns to quench your thirst and elevate your spirits.

    Bring a full wallet and an empty stomach as there are plenty of samples to be tried and stores filled with clothes, soaps, cheese, wine, crafts, pottery, spreads, and more to shop from. Smithville is located just a few miles from Atlantic City and the beaches of Jersey. Enjoy the quiet and the serenity of this tiny town and a lovely view of Lake Meone. Smithville makes for a great day trip, and a wonderful opportunity for two, just you, or the entire family!

Built in 1870, The Atlantic City Boardwalk, still stands long and proud, reeling in hundreds of visitors every year. With the beach lining one side and vendors, and confections lining the other, there’s no tiring of this walk. The boardwalk was made to be enjoyed at all hours of the day. For early risers, you can head out and run or bike the expanse of the boardwalk as early at 6 a.m. Enjoy the glow of the Atlantic Ocean in the daytime and soak in the enormous neon signs that liven the boardwalk at night. Fishing and surfing are popular during warm-weather months. But even in cooler weather, the dozens of alluring casinos, restaurants, shops, bars, and clubs offer visitors plenty of entertainment all year round.
