Jersey Shore 2014: The Shore, Your Way

We’ve created a Shore guide that will give you more of what you want — whether you spent all winter dreaming about the seafood, the surf or walking the boards.

Going to the Shore is a ritual that almost all Philadelphians share. Together, we feel that rush each summer to get on the road, to wear the same shorts for a week, to start cocktail hour an hour earlier. Once we’re there, we all get a little happier, a little nicer, a little more relaxed.

Of course, there are also those experiences that make the Shore completely our own. Who you are determines how you vacation: Maybe you look forward most to the break-of-dawn bike ride to get doughnuts; maybe you take pride in knowing where to secure the best square of sand; maybe it’s showing your kids the fine art of pulling an extra ticket out of the Skeeball machine.


With that in mind, we’ve created a Shore guide that will give you more of what you want — whether you spent all winter dreaming about the seafood, the surf or walking the boards. Click on to make this your most special summer yet.

    Why has LBI been excluded from this year’s Shore guide?

    • Tony_Ieradi

      LBI is not considered South Jersey…

  • Ship Bottom Sal

    No reason given in the magazine for the blatant snub of Long Beach Island. Given that there are no Comments a month after the Best of edition came out, I take it no one buys the mag or knows of this site…
