Avalon might be best known for its beaches, but modern-day visitors will be surprised to learn that the region originally began life as a wooded agricultural settlement, before the juniper forests on the island were cleared and the area redeveloped as a resort destination for New Jersey's elite in the late 19th century. To get a greater insight into the town's natural and cultural heritage, take a trip to the centrally located Avalon History Center, which explores the area's past and present through a range of public programs and exhibits.
