The Shore Issue Has Arrived

See tons of photos from the magazine

The weather may have just turned toasty, but around the Philly Mag offices, it’s been feeling like summer for weeks. We’ve been hard at work putting together our annual Shore issue—available just in time for you to hit the beaches for the long Memorial Day weekend. This year, we’re reminding you of everything there is to love about the Jersey Shore, from the trashy t-shirts to totally-worth-it waits at Uncle Bill’s. We’ve also got photos of lifeguards from all your favorite Shore points. They’re spilling their guts about why they love what they do. (And if you like those, check back here next week when we’ll reveal our behind-the-scenes images from the photoshoot.) There’s also lots of info about the newest places to stuff your face—no matter where you’ve set up your umbrella. Finally, we’ve got a look at the quintessential Shore experience courtesy of the Giuntas of West Chester, who have been renting a big, old beach house as a (growing!) family for 40 years. Our writer crashed their party and brought back funny, touching stories. They’re the perfect beach read.
