This is totally my opinion, but living in Ocean County, you might never have done this. Do it this summer. Don't just do it once, do it a couple of times this summer at the boardwalk.

It's high in the sky Seaside Heights Sky Ride. It is so relaxing. After a day on the beach and the boards, head to the sky ride. Sit back, relax, and hold your flip-flops.

The Seaside Heights Sky Ride even has a page on, that's pretty cool. Not only is it relaxing but the scenery is just the best anywhere. Your feet are hanging right over Seaside Heights Beach. You can see everything from the sky ride, including the once very popular MTV hit show, "Jersey Shore", and where they all would hang out on the roof. It's pretty cool and I remember how popular the sky ride was when they were shooting the show. There were lines to get on the sky ride.

Now, years later, there aren't usually lines, you can hop right on. There is a separate payment for the sky ride, different than the credits for the rides on Casino Pier. It's $8 round trip and $5 one way. I love this video from Casino Pier of the Sky Ride:

The nice thing about the Seaside Heights Sky Ride, it brings you back. You don't have to get off on the other side. You stay seated and enjoy the ride back. I just can't wait to ride it again for like the thousandth time, I love it.

LOOK: See America's 50 Best Beach Towns

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
