I don’t know about you but I have this image of the Jersey Shore, which unfortunately for the majority of folks from New Jersey, includes Snooki or JWoww, beefy blokes, tanning salons and fist pumps.
As shown in exhibit “a” (picture above) tanning is fairly popular in New Jersey but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived (after a somewhat long train ride – 1 1/2 hours to be exact) at Long Branch last Sunday afternoon.
Long Branch quickly reached the exalted heights of being our #1 beach that we’ve been to in the USA (and clearly this is not saying much). This being said I don’t think we will be regularly spending 3 hours of our Saturday or Sunday on a train to get there and back. But I would go back, even if there are no waves!
