New Jersey Beaches
Clean Ocean Action staged its 29th annual fall beach sweeps Saturday at more than 70 coastal locations.
At what price? He estimates between $750 million and $1 billion.
Pointing out all the attractions of the Jersey Shore is an exercise in the obvious. A bustling vacation destination since the 1800s, the Jersey Shore attracts millions of families, couples and young singles annually for its spectacular 127 miles of Atlantic Ocean shoreline. It’s Atlantic and Cape May counties that really draw in the locals though. Every summer, the Atlantic City Expressway and Garden State Parkway become bottlenecked with Pennsylvanians and New Yorkers heading toward beaches, bays, bars and boardwalks. From Sandy Hook to historic Cape May, “shoobies” go “down the shore” for sand, surf, sun and fun that only the Shore’s hotels, casinos, souvenir shops, restaurants, amusement parks and wet entertainment can deliver.
From Asbury Park to Avalon and beyond, many of us have a favorite shore point. And if so, now’s the time to be counted.
