It’s time to kick off the 2017 summer beach season with top places to hit at the Jersey Shore. Hopefully by now everyone has purged from their memories the meathead fueled train wreck show that bears the same name as the popular New Jersey destination spot.
A mainstay at the Jersey Shore for over 60 years, this isn’t the place for a lowkey, quiet Friday night. Always packed Thursday through Sunday, you’re guaranteed a wild night, loud music, and plenty of dancing.
