Think You Know the Real Story Behind Sea Isle City?
Looks like the warmer weather is finally here! Once again, it's time to go behind-the-name of another South Jersey coastal town. We'll take a closer look at the name of one of the most popular summer destinations in the Garden State.
According to Wikipedia, Sea Isle City finally became its own borough in the summer of 1882 after originally being a part of Dennis Township. In the spring of 1907, parts of Dennis and Upper Township were added to Sea Isle City. The name, Sea Isle, comes from its location on the Atlantic Ocean.
I love driving down Landis Ave, which is named for its founder, Charles K. Landis. Fun fact - Landis apparently also was founded Vineland!
The festival, which is filled with family activities, local delicacies and a seaside craft market is set to take place over Father's Day weekend this year, June 16th and 17th.
I always enjoy spending time in Sea Isle City during the summer. There are so many fun things to do including movies under the stars and FREE music in the park!
