Egg Harbor Township's
The name of Egg Harbor actually comes from a Dutch settler's description of the vast amounts of waterfowl that used to make their nests in this area. Prior to European colonization, though, this land was home to Lenni Lenape Native people. Gloucester County records show references to Egg Harbor Township as early as 1693, making this a very old site for European settlement in America. Among other changes over the centuries, Egg Harbor Township has gotten smaller. In fact, what is now known as Atlantic City was once part of Egg Harbor Township.
If your kids love fairy tales or roller coasters (or both), they will be delighted with Egg Harbor Township's Storybook Land amusement park. This park bases its theme around famous kids' stories, from Mother Goose to Jack and the Beanstalk. Unlike many other amusement parks that seem more geared toward adults and older kids, this park is much more geared to kids who are no older than 10 or 11. Because the target audience is so young, rides tend to be more fun than scary, including kid-sized train sets and an old-fashioned carousel.
