Tips on Trips

Grace Kelly (1929–82), the Academy Award-winning actress and Princess of Monaco, was a summer resident of Ocean City. Her house was at the intersection of 26th St. and Wesley Ave. She would bring her three children, Prince Albert and princesses Caroline and Stephanie, to summer there.

Wildwood Insectarium

A branch of the Philadelphia Insectarium, this museum is right on the boardwalk. It has thousands of live and mounted insects, tons of interactive displays, live animals, and lots of hands-on activities. 

Discovery Seashell Museum

2721 Asbury Ave., Ocean City

This Ocean City fixture brings the bottom of the ocean to the surface. Visitors can see 5,000 species of seashells and coral from around the world, including a 200-pound shell from a man-eating clam in the Philippines, and pink conch shells from the Bahamas. Kids can make their own shell jewelry and take a picture inside a giant shark jaw. 

The Wetlands Institute

1075 Stone Harbor Blvd., Stone Harbor

Located in Stone Harbor, the Institute offers fun educational experiences and research programs that connect families with New Jersey’s wetlands and coastal environments. Kids can feed terrapins (turtles) and explore salt marsh trails. It’s a good activity on a rainy day.
