In Coney Island, there's 3 miles of sandy beach. It is also a good idea to check out Luna Park (a theme park), New York Aquarium, the Abe Stark Ice Skating Rink, or MCU Park (a minor league baseball stadium).
Wildwood, New Jersey. Spent Summers of my youth with my family there..great memories.
There are many family-oriented #Jerseyshorevacations that you can choose from when you are planning to have a vacation for your big family such as the Wildwood. It has beautiful ocean frontage that allows the family to spend the day building sand castles on the beach and swimming in the relaxing ocean waters.
