The Avalon Firefighter's Memorial is located on Dune Street at 30th Street in Avalon New Jersey. If you're driving along the main drag, you won't miss it. It's right down the street from the shopping district and you'll find parking nearby.
Unlike some of the other Jersey Shore locations, Avalon doesn't have a traditional boardwalk. You will find stores to shop in that are located along the business district and sprinkled throughout the island, but you won't find any major shopping malls. If you want to hit a mall, you'll have to go over on the mainland to find one.
If you're heading to the beach, you'll need to purchase beach tags. You can purchase them for daily access, weekly access or for the entire season. Prices start at $6.00 per person, per day and go up to $27.00 per person, per season. If you're staying in nearby Stone Harbor, they will honor those beach tags too!
