AT THE SHORE
it’s undeniable: The Jersey Shore
has something for everyone. With
about 150 miles of oceanfront from
Sandy Hook to Cape May, it’s no surprise that our Shore has such a wide
appeal. The stories in this year’s Shore
Guide reflect that variety and—we
hope—tell even veteran Shoregoers a
few things they might not have known
about this Jersey treasure.
First, South Jersey bureau chief
Nick DiUlio takes us on a tour of
Ocean City, with its seemingly endless
array of family-friendly events and
attractions. He even introduces us to
Mark Soifer, the master showman behind Ocean City’s sense of good, clean
and often wacky fun.
From family fun we go to party central, with a daylong visit to Seaside
Heights. Got an appetite? Take a stroll
with reporter Katie Kortebein as she
and five best friends munch their way
up and down the boardwalk.
Sophisticated sipping more your
style? Our guide to cocktails on the
beach tips you off to 12 oceanfront
spots where you can relax with an artisanal concoction in hand while taking
in a view of the crashing surf. Some
even serve drinks right on the sand.
Of course, before the relaxation
begins, you’ve got to find a place to
stay. For those who’ve yet to nail
down a vacation spot, our “Summer
Rental Do’s and Don’ts” provides 12
tips to help you find the best accom-
modations—and avoid a midsummer
Now, how about the family dog? You
didn’t think we’d forget about our furry friends, did you? Alas, dog-friendly
destinations can be hard to find down
the Shore. Fear not; our editorial team
discovered 16 parks at or near the
beach that roll out the welcome mat
for well-behaved canines.
And did I remind you to download
our Shore App? It’s free—and it’s got
updates on 40 beach towns. You won’t
want to head to the Shore without it.
