We visited Tuckerton Seaport at the end of the daily program. We may have been the only visitors at that time, so we were practically alone in the whole complex. I imagine that the place is quite popular at the peak of the season and there are good reasons - the principal being the interesting combination of ethnography and history.... More

I have not been to the seaport since it opened. I went during the week, so there weren't many visitors. The main building housed the gift shop and a place to purchase tickets. Basically you are on your own to tour the seaport, of which there were very few. The lighthouse was interesting and the woman who was there was... More

The buildings were nice. There is a nice lighthouse there. It was not one of their busy days. The staff was not all that friendly.

Our family decided to go see what bacon fest was all about this past weekend. It was so great! So many food trucks and vendors. Live music in several different areas, pig races, and a mechanical pig to name a few of the highlights! We will definitely go back next year if they have it there!
