The Five Jersey Shore Stories of the Summer

From Revel to the Union League to Sandy — still — this is what we’ll be following.

Memorial Day is just around the corner, which means the start of what will hopefully be another sunny summer at the Jersey Shore.

For the purposes of stormy Friday daydreaming, here are five downashore topics we’ll be talking about this year:

    Nice post. Great pictures. You covered uncommon stories. Anyhow, when the time comes to plan a trip to the Jersey Shore, visit Going Strong to learn about the personalities of different towns and upcoming events. It is great to go where you want when fun things are happening. Have fun in Jersey.

    Say NO to beach tags! Those snooty bastards complain they need the $$$ to ‘keep up the beaches’. How ’bout This jerky beach towns, if no one came to your provincial town to rent houses and spend money, you wouldn’t need to keep ‘em up. You gouge us Plenty for the Summer, take your tag fees out of that! Personally, I LOVE going to the Ocean City beaches where I can ‘swim at my own risk’ without having some stupid kid lifeguard whistling me out when I’m in knee-high water. And I’m smoking a cigar on that beach too, but I’m disposing of it in a trash can when I’m done.
