These 32 Rare Vintage Postcards Of The Jersey Shore Will Have You Feeling Nostalgic

New Jersey’s coast is iconic. Our shore resorts were among the first in the nation and have been enjoyed for decades by guests from all over the country. Atlantic City is even a global tourist destination, and Asbury Park has been gaining in popularity, as well. We’re all familiar with these shore spots, but have you ever wondered what they were like in the past? These rare vintage postcards will give you a glimpse!
