I often write about how I love this area for the easy access to NYC and Philadelphia. When the weather is hot though, there is nothing like the beach! The past few days have been brutal and we were grateful to be able to make an easy escape to the Jersey Shore. Sitting at the surf in a sand chair and watching the kids play with the water splashing on our legs and the breeze blowing, we felt so lucky.
Each town has a different personality and one of our favorites is Avon By The Sea. It’s not the closest to us but it’s worth the extra few minutes. We love it because it’s user friendly. It’s $9.00 to get on the beach, street parking is free, lots of clean bathrooms, good food to purchase there and it’s quiet because there aren’t any blasting radios.
The Columns across the street is perfect for when you are ready to leave the beach, have a cocktail and listen to live music. And don’t miss their Grill Room for amazing prices on fresh seafood while looking at the ocean. What a fun break, instead of being drained by the heat, we were rejuvenated!
