Explore the Delaware Bay or Go Fishing!

Do you have a favorite spot to fish in Cumberland County? I know there are many, but since we’re just getting started I can’t make a recommendation from personal experience. Visit Takemefishing.org to find your own spot.


Another area I plan to explore this spring is the Bayshore Center at Bivalve and Delaware Bay Museum to learn about the history of the area. Bivalve, Commercial Township, serves as the home port for Schooner A.J. Meerwald, New Jersey’s official Tall Ship, a restored oyster dredging schooner. They also host Second Fridays, with a different theme each month and festivals throughout the summer. To learn more about the Bayshore Center visit their website.
