As the vacation season ends, Beach Haven’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

Beach Haven is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
