High Bridge, NJ (PRWEB) October 6, 2008
For over 40 years, Deborah Schwabe has taken numerous vacations to Long Beach Island. She's been there so many times, she considers the area to be a second home.
"I've been to LBI hundreds of times over the years. Sitting on the beach in the late afternoon, with perfect weather, watching the ocean, I find peace and serenity. It's an incredible place to visit. Sometimes I just long to be there, so I hop in my car and head down, just so I can be there for a little while," Schwabe explains.
In an effort to get other people to appreciate Long Beach Island, Schwabe created an extensive travel directory. Known as LongBeachIslandSummers.com, this directory is one of the best online. Containing very few advertisements, LongBeachIslandSummers.com provides travelers with quality, first-hand information based on Schwabe's experiences and research.
When travelers visit the site, they are getting an opportunity to preview Long Beach Island before actually going there in person. They not only get basic info regarding lodging and restaurants, but they also get "inside information" that is not as well known to those outside of the island.
For example, if a person is disabled, they can rent a surf chair from the Long Beach Township Beach Patrol. Designed like a regular wheelchair, surf chairs use PVC tubing to allow for beach transportation. Users can travel through the sand with ease. They can even get close enough to the water to get their feet wet.
There is also information in regards to beach weddings, which tend to be very popular on the island. Brides and grooms will learn about their clothing options as well as the types of chapels they should use.
In addition, LongBeachIslandSummers.com provides insight on the LBI Chowderfest, something else people outside of the island may not be aware of. Running between October 4 and 5, the Chowderfest lets people eat and judge the local chowder.
All in all, this is just a small sample of what LongBeachIslandSummers.com has to offer. Dozens of other tidbits are available, ranging from info regarding the area's attractions to daily weather forecasts. Basically, after a person visits this site, they will know everything there is to know about Long Beach Island.
