Wednesdays are Free Fun Days in Beach Haven

Jul 03, 2017

When Beach Haven celebrated its 125th anniversary two years ago, residents and visitors had free access to the beach as well as to the borough’s tennis courts and public boat ramp every Wednesday during the summer season. The feedback from “Fun Day” was so positive, Beach Haven is doing it again this summer.

Sherry Mason, borough clerk and acting manager, said people will be given access to exclusive Wednesday deals, including coupons toward many of the town’s restaurants, shops and nonprofits. A list of merchant-provided discounts and other offers will be found on the borough’s website as well as in participating stores.

The borough is also allowing people to offer yoga and other exercise classes as well as surfing lessons at the beach and parks without having to pay a fee.

“It’s a great way to attract people to Beach Haven,” said Mayor Nancy Taggart Davis. “It helps us in being a business- and tourist-friendly community, which we strive to be. For people who have never been to Beach Haven, this is a nice way to introduce them to our town.”

Barbara Cona, vice president of the recently formed Beach Haven Chamber of Commerce, said various local business are offering discounts on Wednesdays. She said some of the specials include the LBI Historical Museum discounting admissions to $3 per person and its Sign of the Whale Gift Shop offering a 10 per discount on Wednesdays. She said Bleu Salon is offering 10 percent off all services by mentioning Wednesday-Funday. Mr. Tee’s miniature golf has pay for one course and the second course is free from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. YuleTide is giving a 20 percent discount off LBI soy candles. Post a “like” on Sea la Vie’s  Facebook page to see its Wednesday discount.

Cona said A Lovely Universe offers 15 percent off from 3 to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays. Artifacts now sells coffee and on Wednesdays offers a $2 coffee and $3 cold brew. If you purchase an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, you get 10 percent off wax and any brush. Morrison’s Marina & Ship’s Store offers 10 percent off any gift item. Windward Beach Haven offers 10 percent off Wednesday night stays with the code WW10, and South-End Surf N’ Paddle is offering $10 off standup paddleboard rental.

A free concert, sponsored by the Beach Haven Community Arts Program, also is held every Wednesday at Veterans Memorial Park, at 7 p.m.

“The concert is a perfect ending to a great day,” said Mason.  —E.E.
