Everyone who visits the Jersey Shore has their own "beach". But if you are new to the Jersey beach scene, how do you find the right one for you? They each have their own unique personality. For example, there are beaches that families with young children flock to because there are warm pools of water that form near the jetties where tots can play contentedly under sunbathing mom's watchful eye.
There are volleyball beaches on the Shore that attract the tan, trim crowd, or those who like to watch them. Some beaches invite couples to stroll through their quiet, gentle surf. Some beaches are better known for rougher surf, so not too many strollers there, but the surfers love them!
Beaches with lots of restaurants and attractions, beaches with very little commercial activity, clothing optional beaches, beaches that gays prefer, beaches that teens prefer, beaches you're more likely to find grandma and grandpa on. The best beach vacations are right here on the Shore.
Summer on the Jersey Shore is "shore" to suit you when you find your special beach to spend your beach vacations on.
So we're going to explore some of the best beaches on the shore and you can decide the one that's perfect for you, whether it be for family fun, exciting night life, nature in the raw or strolling and relaxing.
Of course, man does not live by beach alone, so we will look at the many attractions available at or near the great beaches "down the shore". (In New Jersey, you don't go to the beach, you go "down the shore".) Fishing, boating, diving, para sailing, and other water related activities abound, but theme parks, historical sites and even the big city life are all within your reach when you vacation at the Shore.
And just as the beaches of the Shore are "you-unique", you can choose lodging that suits your style perfectly as well. Whether you prefer hotels, motels, condos or a little (or not so little) vacation rental home, there is a wide array of choices that will match your needs and your budget.
Ya gotta eat, right? The freshest seafood, the juiciest hamburgers, the best in casual and fine dining are all waiting for you after you've worked up your appetite in the sand and the surf. New Jersey, especially the New Jersey Shore, is noted for its great seafood, of course, but did you know that you can find some of the finest continental dining outside of New York just steps from your vacation home?
Maybe you'll just fall in love with your special Jersey Shore Beach and decide to buy a vacation home there. In addition to sharing your fabulous beach vacation with friends and loved ones, you can rent it out when you are not there and pay for your vacation each year!
It's easy to get to and from the Jersey Shore, as long as you know the exit. That's an old Jersey joke, people don't ask what town you live in, just what exit you're at on the Garden State Parkway.
Seriously, getting to the beaches of New Jersey is a breeze, whether you are driving in from Akron, Ohio, or flying in from Paris, France. The highways leading to the coast are well marked and easy to follow. And you can't get lost. Just keep heading east until you hit the beach!
