Things to do at Jersey Shore this summer
Starting with perhaps the most obvious, but often overlooked aspect of the shore area… Its huge and varied offerings in terms of good-old-fashioned “fun in the sun”. But, make no mistake; sunbathing and swimming on its white sandy beaches is just scratching the surface of all it has to offer. Boardwalks, competitions, races, bicycle trails, etc. are only a few of the many things you can do outdoors while at Jersey Shore.

Boardwalk food, carnival rides and beachside attractions of all kinds imaginable will delight your imagination for sure! Here is a closer look at the highlights of the boardwalk.
Who hasn’t heard of Jersey Shore by now? The reality TV smash-hit series on MTV has certainly made the nightlife culture of this area somewhat infamous among many viewers, and not without some reason. However, there is more to the nightlife offerings the area holds within itself. While popular nightclubs such as Seaside Heights and Belmar are increasingly popular among New York residents (because of its close proximity to the Big Apple), more sophisticated adults can enjoy the legendary nightlife and casino culture of Atlantic City. For many others, looking for a more chilled experience and relaxed atmosphere, Long Beach Island offers the perfect laid-back vibes for enjoying a few cold drinks during the beautiful summer nights.
In short, there are many different and exciting things you can do this summer at Jersey Shore. Depending on your personal preference and style, you’ll be sure to find something lovely to do around this wonderful part of the country during the hot summer months!
