Discover the Shore

    Explore “The Shore”

    Seaview is the perfect place to explore the Jersey Shore. Driving north and you’ll discover Long Beach Island and Barnegat lighthouse, Spring Lakes and Asbury Park, home to the Stone Pony made famous by Bruce Springsteen. To the South day trippers find Ocean City and its Boardwalk, the quaint beach town of Stone Harbor and Cape May, a seaside gem with nearly 600 preserved Victorian buildings and where the entire city has been designated a National Historic District.
    And to think, all these special places are within an hour’s drive of Seaview. Close to everything and yet, a world apart indeed.

    Forsythe Bird Sanctuary

    Also north of the hotel is The Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. At 47,000 acres, it’s one of the largest and most active flight paths for migratory birds in North America. Throughout the year there is an abundance of wildlife viewing opportunities including ospreys, cranes, white tail deer, wild turkeys, otters and the majestic bald eagle. You don’t have to be a birder to love Forsythe.
