Brigantine has made the way to the top of the list as New Jersey’s best towns for ecotourism. From clean beaches and bays to a complete wildlife reserve and an observation deck that looks over the land of wild foxes, Brigantine is a treat for anyone. Brigantine even has a Marine Mammal Stranding Center, which nurses sick marine mammals back to health before releasing them back to their natural habitats. One last thing: don’t be surprised if you see a horse on the north end beaches. Horseback riding is a secret activity that locals and tourists alike are often unaware of!
