Find Local Pizza in Avalon, New Jersey

The borough of Avalon on Seven Mile Island in the state of New Jersey is a place with a fascinating and unusual history. The spot where Avalon stands today was originally purchased by one man from the Indigenous Natives of the area and he set to felling trees, selling the timber, and farming the terrains he cleared. The same tract of land stayed in his family for a century until one descendant decided to sell the property to a town development company. The developers didn't take long to put their plans for building a beach resort in action. After the completion of a rail bridge connecting Seven Mile Island to the mainland, visitors began to pour into the new and trendy resort. The resident population continued to remain low and still doesn't number more than a couple of thousand. Even though permanent residents were sparse, the seasonal influx of visitors arriving in the mid-20th century was enough to encourage a couple of Italian families to open their restaurants there and not surprisingly, pizza has been as popular in Avalon as everywhere else in the US.
