I love to travel, I really do and I love to take my kids with me. Growing up my family always camped and we often traveled to historical places, so I grew up being able to experience a lot of the history that our country has to offer. In my opinion there is no better way to learn then to visit and experience a place or a historical attraction for yourself. It really makes history come alive and I am trying to raise my kids with a similar experience ( minus the camping!).
I recently was given the chance to visit the Tuckerton Seaport in Tuckerton NJ with my younger two girls and we had a great time learning about the history of the area and of the clamming industry. Because we were there during their Pirates and Privateers Festival we also got to join in on some Pirate Fun!
Here are some of the highlights of our visit:
Learning about clamming from a real clam fisherman at the Tuckerton Seaport.
Searching for clams in the sand
The Lighthouse at the Tuckerton Seaport
Climbing the stairs of the Tuckerton Seaport Lighthouse
Learning about the importance of wool and how to make textiles from it
Chatting with the wood carver who makes Duck Decoy’s at the Tuckerton Seaport
Learning about the Barnegat Bay Sneakbox boat, which can float in just 3 inches of water so it is perfect for shallow bays.
