If you need to relax doing something that does not involve spending money or hanging out on the beach you can also find other fun stuff to do. Walking is great, either on the beach or beyond the Sawmill (the south side of the boardwalk) and onto the Seaside Park boardwalk. There are no commercial stands here, just a place to walk at the back edge of the beach.
You could head over to the Barnegat Bay side of Seaside Heights, take a walk out on the fishing dock and check out what people are catching. Depending on the time of year you just might be able to find a few folks with a bushel full of blue claw crabs.
If you just can't get away from the Seaside Heights Boardwalk but need a break from the usual just sit on a boardwalk bench and people watch. It is amazing how many folks you can see smiling, laughing and being playful with one another. After all the very idea of the Boardwalk is to entertain (in return for enticing you into parting with your money!). That in itself is kind of nice. It is also a wonder to see so many different kinds of people. Young, old and from all walks of life.
