Plan Your New Jersey Shore Vacation
The Hamptons may have the white-clad, windswept, neo-Gatsby glitz, but New Jersey has beach towns to appeal to many tastes. A leisurely breakfast on the veranda of a historic home, a long walk with waves nipping at their toes, and an evening performance at an equity theater may appeal to some. Others may opt for a weekend of stores and spas, amusements on a bustling boardwalk, and dancing the night away to the sounds of celebrated DJs. All are great reasons to take a trip "Down the Shore."
