During the summer months when the area is hopping with tourists they often hold musical concerts at the Hereford Inlet Park. The range of music and bands that they feature is varied and all of the entertainment is held outdoors in the fresh sea air.
If you are looking to observe some coastal birds, take photos of the ocean or take a chance and see some dolphins swimming by...this is the place you want to be! Matter of fact, we feel that the best place to search for gorgeous seashells happens to be on the beach right behind the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse!
Roaming around the park grounds and the lighthouse grounds is FREE and makes for a great affordable family-friendly activity while visiting the Jersey Shore. There are some porta-potties nearby but I recommend you hit a public restroom before heading here as they are usually not very clean. Other than that, I think you will love visiting this area. Enjoy your trip!
