Easily the best town out of the southern shore points. From the younger crowd at 40th and Landis to the families down at the Inlet, sea isle offers something for everyone. The beach is beautiful and large enough for large groups and recreational activities, not to mention you'll never find sea isle as crowded as ocean city or wildwood, nor is it as boring and pretentious as avalon or stone harbor. The boardwalk isn't cluttered with run down stores or cheap amusements, nor will someone try to call you in for a noise violation at 9pm on memorial day weekend. In fact, your neighbors will probably try and join in on the party. Also, sea isle offers the best party and bar scene of all the shores. The houses from 30th-50th street are mostly inhabited by an array of young men and women in their early to late 20s. The few blocks from 43rd to 38th crossing with Landis and Pleasure are lined with bars and 24 hour eateries, giving the college age people the run of the place all throughout the night. Towards either end of the island, the atmosphere is more quiet and family oriented, giving them independence from the young crowd around the bars.
