All amusement parks are not created equal — that is, they are not equally amusing.
There is something special about an amusement park that is sea-side (is sea-side a word?). The beach, the boardwalk, the smell of the ocean… ah, very nice.
It has been awhile since we lived close enough to New Jersey (or Delaware, or Maryland) to hit the beach and the amusement parks with the kids, and I would love to do so. Maybe next Spring?
Perhaps the best oceanside (I know that is a word) amusement parks for a family beach vacation is Morey’s Piers in New Jersey.
