I actually like the Jersey Shore like Ocean City, Sea Isle, Avalon and Cape May. I haven’t found it to be dirty. What shore points do you like better? I love the cheaper gas in Jersey and like not getting out of the car to pump, especially when it is cold/rainy. But it does take longer which is a pain.
The drivers I see from Jersey especially here in PA in our suburban town are going 90 mph and cutting people off left and right. Don’t see too many but when I do, almost all are driving too fast or cutting people off. I can’t count how many near misses I’ve had with cars only to see the New Jersey license plate. My friends and I even had a funny line we would say when these things would happen. We’d see the Jersey plate and just say, “Jersey”….meaning, not surprised the car was driving like a madman.

I tend to go to ocnj now because my friend has a house there and lets me stay for free. But i’ve been from cape may up to LBI. I spent a good chuck of time in wildwood because its a free beach. I wish I would see jersey drivers going fast. They cannot drive in philly they brake every 2 blocks and just seem so confused,

We went to Wildwood. I’ve only been there once, and I really wasn’t impressed at all. We are between trying Cape May, or just sucking it up and traveling to Virginia Beach because I really don’t like NJ.

WHY DOES ANYONE GO TO CAMDEN???? I’ve lived in NJ my entire life and avoided it til about a year ago for a concert. Two words: NEVER AGAIN.
I was raised in Bergen County and let me tell you, that part of the state is a warped, over priced, pretentious, over crowded shithole of a place to be. What’s even more bizarre is the majority of people I went to high school with married fellow townies and bought homes there, too!! I COULD NEVER!
Since moving further west to Morris Co. and looking to buy a home in Sussex, NJ has a lot more to offer than I EVER thought! The more remote parts of the state offer beautiful scenery, produce, less expensive living and better people all around. The sad part is, those from Bergen Co. can’t even see past their bubble and consider other areas to be “the sticks”. It’s pathetic!!
The one good thing about NJ is that you have every season (as harsh as the winters can be) and depending where you are, are 30 minutes from a major city, beach or farm.
PS you wouldn’t BELIEVE how much slack FH and I get from people when they hear our reception is in a barn and not a marble clad wedding hall!! Our deejay thought playing country was a foreign concept. People around here are so uncultured and ignorant!!

Oh, I’ve never been to Wildwood but for the most part haven’t heard good things about it at all. In fact, that is the one shorepoint I would NOT go to in Jersey. I’ve heard it is well, wild, and dirty…There are much nicer shorepoints in Jersey! VA Beach is nice, too!
That’s funny that the drivers are slower in and around Philly. Out here they are flying! Not that we PA drivers are slow by any means, but the ones I’ve seen from NJ are super fast, never use signals (more than PA drivers) and cut me off more than anyone else. Guess they are lost while in Philly, so that is why they are slower? Driving on the AC Expressway is always fun. It’s like an amusement park ride at times! My husband will go into the left lane and I’m like, You can’t stay in this lane unless you are going to go 85 mph or faster. haha

The armpit of America.
I got stuck overnight in Newark once, tried to get out on my connecting flight but bad weather made that impossible, and it was like being stuck in the twilight zone. I ended up at a kosher deli/restaurant where the waiter told me I couldn’t have a stack of three pancakes and could only have one, and then brought me out a pancake the size of a large pizza.

Lol!! That size pancake doesn’t sound half bad!

@Aquaria: It is true you can’t pump your own gas in New Jersey? I saw it on a show and was like..really? why?
Post # 70
It’s true! That all went out the window during the days following Sandy though. Gas lines were up to 3 hours long and the attendants couldn’t keep up.
