In that Long Beach Island is a summer resort, many of the businesses and restaurants are only open just before Memorial Day through a little after Labor Day.  There are a small number that do stay open all year round.  Three popular attractions are Barnegat Lighthouse, in Barnegat Light, which is at the north end of LBI; Fantasy Island Amusement Park and Arcade, in Beach Haven, which is at the southern end of the island; and Surflight Theater, which is also in Beach Haven.  And of course, the beaches!
