Back again for another 4th of July at the Jersey Shore. My Mother was from NJ and I have been going there every summer since I was nine months old. I go to Manasquan, a small town in Northern New Jersey, which is South of Spring Lake and Sea Girt and North of Point Pleasant and Bay Head. This is the real Jersey Shore versus the one portrayed on the infamous TV show. These towns are easily accessible from Newark Airport by the NJ Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway or by New Jersey Transit from New York and Newark Airport. Since this area is pretty much culturally void, you can be at New York’s Penn Station in two hours. I have seen many a Broadway matinee over the years and been back in time for dinner. It is a great place to relax and recharge, eat some great seafood and just enjoy walking on the beach.
