After Memorial Day Weekend kicked off the 2024 Summer Season, South Jersey locals and vacationers will have events and activities to look forward to every weekend until September.

Before the Digital World we live in today when everything and anything can be found online, I remember a time when people would go to each South Jersey Shore Town to pick up events calendars. Families would put these events calendars on the fridge so everyone in the house could see what was happening each weekend.

One of the South Jersey Coastal Communities well-known for its events and activities in town each summer is Sea Isle City.  Off Exit 17 on the Garden State Parkway, Sea Isle City was rated one of the Best Summer Weekend Getaway Shore Towns in New Jersey.

The most famous celebrity who spends time in Sea Isle City every Summer is Eagles Legend and future Pro Football Hall of Famer Jason Kelce.  Have you ever wondered what a Professional Athlete's Beach House looks like?  Check out all the details here:

Here's Jason Kelce's $2.2 Million Beach House in Sea Isle City, New Jersey

Ever since Jason Kelce made his emotional retirement announcement, the former Eagles Center has embraced the post-football life. Having grown up in Ohio and playing College Football at the University of Cincinnati, some would think Jason Kelce would spend his post-career years back at home, but he has chosen to live in New Jersey.

Thanks to his wife Kylie growing up in the Suburban Philadelphia area and playing his entire NFL career for the Eagles, Jason Kelce has now planted his life here in Eagles Country. After vacationing in Sea Isle City for years, the Kelces have purchased a Beach House in South Jersey. Makes sense considering Sea Isle City is one of the 50 Best Places to Retire in New Jersey and one of the best towns to live in Cape May County.
