Seaside Heights is a Borough in Ocean County, New Jersey, United States. As of the United States 2000 Census, the borough population was 3,155. Seaside Heights is situated on the Barnegat Peninsula, a long, narrow barrier peninsula that separates Barnegat Bay from the Atlantic Ocean.

Seaside Heights was incorporated as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on February 26, 1913, from portions of both Berkeley Township and Dover Township (now Toms River Township), based on the results of a referendum held on March 25, 1913.[7]

Seaside Heights is a resort community, with a beach, an amusement-oriented boardwalk, and numerous clubs and bars, making it a popular destination. Seaside Heights calls itself, "Your Home For Family Fun Since 1913!"[8] Peak months are July and August, but the season actually runs March-October. Summer population explodes upwards to thirty thousand persons.[9] Route 37 in Toms River is routinely gridlocked on Friday afternoons in the summer months as vacationers pack the barrier islands. The town is most famous for being the location of the hit MTV show "Jersey Shore".

The Seaside Heights Boardwalk has been featured worldwide, most notably by MTV in 1998, 2002, 2009, and 2010.
