it’s always a tough call: With so
many great destinations down the Jersey Shore, which beach towns should
we feature in our annual Shore Guide?
This year, we’ve made it easier by highlighting five different destinations.
We start with Long Branch. One of
New Jersey’s earliest beach resorts,
Long Branch has historic sites to go
with its wide beaches, ample shopping
and dining options, and exciting nightlife. Speaking of history, no Shore
town sticks to its traditions like Ocean
Grove, which still shows off its roots as
a religious retreat while also attracting
a new generation of beachgoers. Next,
we move on to Manasquan, which,
we find, is the very embodiment of
Americana. In Seaside Heights, family fun spots sit side-by-side on the
boardwalk with attractions for young
couples and the single set. Finally, we
visit Sea Isle City, a popular vacation
spot that doubles as an active fishing
Wherever you go down the Shore,
you are sure to come up hungry. That’s
why we’ve served up a guide to the best
raw bars at the beaches. Hungry for fun
things to do? Check out our compilation
of favorite Shore events for the entire
summer. Wondering what’s new down
the Shore this year? We’ve got two pages of new restaurants, cafés, hotels, spas
and amusement rides. There’s even a
new pro football team in Atlantic City.
We hope you’ll keep checking this
issue for great ideas throughout
the summer. While you’re down the
Shore, you’ll also want to download
our free Jersey Shore Beach Guide
app. It brings up-to-date restaurant
and nightlife listings right to your
phone. And to keep up with our sum-mer-long coverage of Shore happenings, sign up online for ShoreCast,
