These Incredible Photos Will Transport You To The Jersey Shore Of Yesteryear

The present feels a little overwhelming and, while I think we should all look forward to a brighter future, I find comfort in the past. I’ve always been a fan of old photos and today I’ve found a few fantastic shots of the Jersey Shore. There were dozens from the ’20s, ’30s, and ’40s, but I wanted to focus on a New Jersey that we might be able to remember – one we have fond memories of. So, these Garden State photos are from the 1950s-1980s, with the exception of the first – a reader request.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
