When people think of New Jersey beaches, all too often Seaside Heights comes to mind. This is thanks in part to the popularity of the infamous MTV “reality” show Jersey Shore, which was filmed in the city. While Seaside Heights is charming in its own right, New Jersey has over 100 miles of coastline and dozens of beautiful beaches. Following are 7 scenic seashores in the state to suit every taste. Try saying that out loud three times, or better yet, try visiting all 7 this summer.

As you can see, Jersey offers so much more than just beach side bars. Atlantic City is a top US tourist destination, Cape May set the standard for beach resorts back in the 1800’s and you can’t beat the sunsets in LBI. With countless entertainment options and breathtaking views along the shore, how could you ask for anything more? Life is truly a beach in this Summertime paradise.
