5 South Jersey Places to cool off this summer

Is it hot out here or is it just us?  Check out these 5 South Jersey places to cool off this summer!

The beach!

Just a quick drive and you’ll be at the perfect spot to soak up the sun and cool down at the Jersey shore. And several of our Shore towns have Boardwalks, so when the temps cool for the night, head to there for lots of fun with games, rides and food. For more information, read our shore story

Clementon Park & Splash World


Clementon Park is one of the oldest amusement parks in the U.S., but a renovation gave the park a giant water park. Spend the morning hitting the rides, and then cool off  on the crazy water slides or coasting through the lazy river. For more information, visit the website

Lake Nummy

Whether you’re looking for an afternoon (or morning) swim, a kayaking trip or some fishing, Lake Nummy has plenty to do. Plus, it features a concession stand and a playground.
