New Jersey Travel: White Lilac Inn


Location: 414 Central Ave., Spring Lake, N.J.

Cost: $159-$319 (double occupancy).

Drive time: About two hours.

The scoop: You won’t find the Snooki crowd anywhere near this peaceful stretch of Shore. The two-mile-long beach and boardwalk are free of commercial craziness, while the village of Spring Lake boasts a Victorian charm. Intimate (nine guestrooms and suites) and beautifully restored, this circa-1880 B&B is located only a few blocks from the beach.

Amenities: Full breakfast, off-street parking, beach badges and bikes are included with overnight stays. Most rooms have single or double whirlpools.

Don’t miss: July’s private garden tour, the summer “Shakespeare in the Park” series (this year’s play is Comedy of Errors) and September’s Art Walk. Or catch a performance at the Spring Lake Community House & Theatre.
