Effects of Sandy Barnegat Lighthouse
West Creek is located approximately 5 miles from Long Beach Island, a premiere vacation spot along the New Jersey coast. We all remember the effects of Hurricane Sandy on the Island and many residents are still trying to recover their homes. West Creek, NJ is still trying to build our town back to it’s original beauty from these detrimental hurricane affects. With a community like ours, we know the job will get done. Our main concerns as community members are preserving our shoreline and its historical significance to the area. With help from many local organizations our community is able to stay strong and rebuild our beautiful town.
If you come down for the summer sun, don’t miss Tuckerton Seaport. You will find history, entertainment and more. The buildings at Tuckerton Seaport you see today were originally brought to the planning board in 1989. This beautiful site, next to what used to be the Tuckerton Creek, now had plans for development of a museums, motel, and campground. Barnegat Bay Decoy and Baymen’s Museum opened their doors July 1973. The museum announced their plan for development of Tuckerton Seaport. However, as planning and development were underway, the plan for the site grew larger than originally proposed. In 2010, the New Jersey Surf Museum opened so locals and out of town visitors are able learn about the culture of surfing in New Jersey. They also have an extensive collection of surf boards, they display over 300 boards. It is the only surfing museum in the state.
Barnegat Lighthouse is a local landmark that is open to the public, Monday thru Friday, except during the winter months. Since 1859 the light has been shining with the help from the organization, Friends of Barnegat Lighthouse, a non-profit group focused on preserving state parks. When you visit this monumental structure, you will see a panoramic view of Island Beach, Barnegat Bay, and Long Beach Island. While traveling the New Jersey coast, make this a number one point of interest.
