"We've always admired the victorian homes and buildings in Beach Haven.  Taking the tour provided so much detail to the families that built the homes and what life was like in the 1800's on LBI."

"My kids and I were curious about the Ghost Tour, and SO glad we did it.  The tour guide was fun and able to tell many stories from back in the day.  Gives you a different perspective as you walk around town now!"

John L., Massachusetts

"My large family came to LBI for a reunion.  Both of these tours were so much fun for all ages!  Also gives you something different to do then just the beach and mini golf (which we love too)!"
