Learned a lot about Tuckerton's historical fishing community. Friendly volunteers. Nice setting as their are waterviews. Could use some polishing up in regards to maintenance. I recommened anyone to go there if they are cutting through town.

Just a short drive north from Atlantic City definitely try to stop in to see this recreation of a historic seaport town and museum. Plenty of things to see and look at and certainly if you want to shop
