Close to beaches

We have a few restaurants within the town serving Italian food & also the German butcher that make eating here worth while. Although originally from Brooklyn. I found Mario’s and other close by restaurants with very good food.
We have Shop-Rites & Home Depot and Walmart, Lidl, Aldi, and TJ Max and Kohl’s all within our town. We also have Dunkin donuts, Taco Bell, White Castle, Charlie Browns and 3 Ice Cream places.
The are also many pub style restaurants close by to grab some good food & a beer.

We are 20 minutes to LBI and Seaside and many choices of beaches. Also Cape May within an hour 10 minutes and approximately Atlantic City 37 minutes. Forgot to mention golf courses all right outside our town within a 10-15 minute ride.

We have beautiful parks with a Roller Hockey arena, soccer fields , baseball. & tennis. Along with many community events. Yes Forked river is not a huge town but has many comforts within or close by within reach. Also cone to our Lacey High School Football Games on their beautiful field and see the town support our local kids. All & all not that bad of a community at all.
