  • Don't hide your head in the sand...from the most northern town of Atlantic Highlands all the way down to Cape May, there are hundreds of patio bars, pubs, bistros and restaurants on the water to cool a hot summers day or night.

Getting off the SeaStreak from Manhattan your journey can begin with many  places to choose from in Atlantic Highlands.  Rumor has it that Bruce Springsteen even choose Chilango's for his Christmas party! If it's good enough for the Boss, its probably good enough for me. 

Moving south to Long Branch, the Wine Loft on the Pier has a great location for viewing the Atlantic Ocean and slipping your toes in the sand after a nice glass of vino and some seafood or different plates that will tease your pallate for more! The Ocean Place is another beautiful stop for a massage to chase away all your worries and cares, followed by a tasty dinner on the beach with a nice cocktail. 

Heading further south into Neptune, even though a little inland, you might want to stop at Pete and Elda's for the BEST thin crust pizza and a beer you've ever had. All the locals know where to go, if you like thin crust pizza. Try the Pizza eating contest where if you eat the HUGE pie you'll get their T-Shirt saying you DID IT!!! It's really good and fun too. 

Once on your way again a stop in Pt. Pleasant will do, and Jenkinson's on the boardwalk has many locations for a nice cold beer and clam shooters. The Broadway Bar and Grill is across the street from the beach but is worth the stop as the roasted clams are to die for and available almost year round.  Having the seafood boats come in across the street, you know they GOTTA be fresh.

On the road down to Island Beach State Park, the last stop before the park is Bum Rogers across from the beach.  A great casual place to eat some terrific crabs, and happy hour has half price appetizers, a great way to save for another cold drink!!

There are many other towns between Seaside and Cape May, but once down to Cape May you have to make a stop at The Rusty Nail, the longest bar in Cape May (they measured) and have one of the coldest beers and most delicious comfort foods they offer. They also have good local bands for your entertainment so you'll be totally satisfied in one spot! 

The Jersey Shore's gotten a bad rap from some, but the true test of the goodness has gone on and on and can only get better with all the great places to stop and enjoy the strangers that welcome you in for another great memory of partying at the Jersey Shore. 

Young and old, now try not to drink too much that you forget what a great time you had, and ENJOY!
