Jersey Shore

I live in Jersey.
Surprise Surprise I know!
I go down the shore from time to time and I am so glad I do go when I do. As much as I LOVE the beach I am not a huge fan of the Jersey Shore. Well lemme rephrase that I am not a huge fan of the Jersey Shore as in Seaside, Point Pleasant and Belmar. Don’t get me wrong every now and then I do enjoy going to Point and Belmar but I do not go that often. Usually when I make my way down the shore I tend to go to Long Branch. It is just so beautiful there and not infested with BENNYS. Whats a BENNY? Well BENNY stands for Bayonne, Elizabeth, Newark, New York.
Ya see from Memorial Day through Labor Day the Jersey Shore is INFESTED with BENNYS and I am not a fan of them. They are so freaking annoying and obnoxious.
The weekend before Memorial Day a friend of mine and I took a ride down to Long Branch to enjoy the weather and a quiet Saturday evening before the infestation begins.
The first thing we did was walk along the beach and out to the jettys.
After our walk and little impromtu photo shoot we wondered up to Pier Village and the boardwalk.
We also had dinner at It’s Greek to Me in Pier Village where we got to sit outside to eat and enjoy our wine.
I had some grilled octopus and a really yummy gyro.
Grilled Octopus
Then I found my way to Cake Bake and Roll because lets be honest girlfriend has a sweet tooth! Red Velvet cake pop? GET IN MY BELLY!!!

    Haha, so sorry that the BENNYS take over your beaches. I usually got to Long Beach Island, about an hour south from Long Branch. There are far less annoying New Yorkers there, thank goodness!

    that looks gorgeous! I’ve never been to Jersey, but after all this “fame” with the show Jersey Shore I’m not sure I would want to visit there!

    I totally know how you feel!! I LOVE the weekend before Memorial Day bc it’s so nice & quiet. I usually go to beaches further south though like Avalon… you should try it down there- not as many Bennys!

    It’s a pain for me to get on LBI, as there’s really only one way on and one way off. I gotta find me a beach I can take the kids too lol

    BENNYs go home!!!!!!!!

    I know exactly what you mean! Usually when I go to the shore, I got to Island Beach State Park- it’s quieter, and you can bring just about anything onto the beach without a fuss. Also, no searching forever to get a spot!

    I’ve never been to LBI but I’m hoping to check it out this summer- looks awesome!
