Island Heights is a hidden gem, located along the Toms River, with a historic district of more than 375 restored Victorian homes. Home to the Ocean County Artists' Guild and the Island Heights Yacht Club, residents are able to enjoy walking on the town's own boardwalk, bike riding the quiet streets or watch one of the regatta's along the picturesque waterfront. The elementary school is small in size, and affords students with a great student to teacher ratio. Sail Fest is the town's annual festival, celebrating the local artist and the rich sailing heritage of the area.
To learn more about the area, check out the local website for more information. Read about the schools, and activities for children at the Ocean County Artist's Guild.
