Gateway Park System’s Sandy Hook location is open for business! If you’ve never had the opportunity to visit this beautiful beach-front park, we thought you might want to see what you’re missing.
Sandy Hook has beautiful bike paths that span the length of the park. The trees mingle above you, creating a lush tunnel of greenery.
Beautiful plaques commemorating heroes of the Armed Forces can be found around the park, and act as a wonderful reminder of our freedoms.
If you want to see one of the country’s oldest lighthouses, this is the spot to be. There are free tours of the area every day from 1pm until 4:30pm. Sandy Hook is also a great scientific field trip destination. It boasts a plethora of resources and classes devoted to oceanography and marine biology.
If you head north, you can visit Fort Hancock, an old coastal artillery base, and proving ground. Although the fort is no longer active, there are plenty of relics from the past scattered throughout the area.
Sandy Hook is not your run-of-the-mill park. Behind the beautiful trees and flora lies a magnificent ocean view.
Come visit Sandy Hook for your next beach vacation. Not only is it a unique park experience, but it’s also covered with the footprints of American history. If you’re looking for the ultimate way to get there, there’s no better option than Seastreak. Avoid the beach traffic and headaches, and take one of our beautiful and spacious boats to the beach.
