IT'S AN ANNUAL TRADITION in Avalon and Stone Harbor, Christmas trees on the beach! The Avalon Department of Recreation has put a tree on the 30th Street beach, and the Stone Harbor Department of Recreation has put a tree on the 95th Street Beach. This tradition is perfect for family photos and memories. Perhaps you'll want to put a seashell on the tree with your family names. Enjoy!

'TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY! It’s time to put away the turkey leftovers and break out the stockings. The holiday season is upon us, and as the countdown to Christmas moves forward, now is the time to start decorating the house. An integral part of that will include selecting the perfect Christmas tree for your home. Despite the simplicity and ease of artificial trees, there is nothing quite like the thrill of buying a real Christmas tree year to year.
