Summer comes and goes. But, at the Jersey Shore, the beach, the sand, the sea and some of the amusement attractions never leave.
Patch would like you to pick your favorite Jersey Shore "staycation" spot - a place to bring the boyfriend or girlfriend, or the family and grandparents - when cash and time are too short for the plane trip to Florida or Mexico.
Voting for your favorite places is easy. All you have to do is:
- Please review the choices below, and then cast your ballot at the bottom of this page.
- Tell your friends, family, acquaintances, co-workers, doctors, letter carriers and anyone else you know to do the same.
- Use our comment tool to tell us what makes your favorite the best.
- If you think we left one out, tell us in the comments section as well.
The voting goes until 9 a.m. Friday with the winner being announced at noon so there is plenty of time to cast your vote.
