History of Bay Head

welcomepage1There is something special about Bay Head! Like our unique brand of artwork (a local favorite), our town is pretty, charming and lots of fun.

Many large, well-kept Victorian homes line our streets, gardens bloom in season and, of course, our uncrowded, life guarded beaches are our constant joy.

We are 70 miles south of New York City, 65 miles east of Philadelphia, 60 miles north of Atlantic City.

There is plenty to do all around the Bay Head area. But right here in our rather quaint country village by the sea, we live a quietly casual yet somewhat elegant lifestyle.

Did you know that in 2005 the Borough of Bay Head was formally accepted into the New Jersey State and the Federal Registries of Historic Places.  The architecture of the Victorian seaside resort was, and continues to be, exceptional.

We enjoy the Atlantic Ocean at our front door to the east – with swimming, kayaking, diving, fishing, surfboarding and all types of ocean water sports…

…and at our back door to the west we have Barnegat Bay to enjoy – with crabbing, windsurfing, waterskiing, power and sail boating along with other calm water sports.
Bay Head is a great place to fly a kite, to bicycle on quiet village streets, to collect seashells and sea glass, to watch the ducks in our wildlife sanctuary, to sit back and enjoy a glorious sunset.

We have specialty shops with outstanding goods and services; we highly recommend our comfortable bed and breakfasts; and we offer a range of dining choices from gourmet take-out to award-winning cuisine.
Bay Head is a fun place – well-loved since the late 1800’s by folks who like the good life. Come visit – for a change of pace, any time of year.
