I grew up in Hightstown NJ. Just about a 15-mile drive to Great Adventure and a 40-minute drive to the beaches of the Jersey Shore, two places I spent most of my childhood summers. Long days on the beach were spent in Seaside Heights consisting of body surfing in waves what felt like 100 feet high, a packed lunch and the anticipation of dinner on the boardwalk. To this day, there is nothing like a Midway hot grilled sausage link, split in half and cradled by a soft long roll, layered with peppers and onions.

Do You Agree? Top Sounds Of Summer At The Jersey Shore
The summer season always brings a smile to my face. As I age, the warmer weather is also rather comforting to my body. Some would argue the Jersey Shore weather tends to get too hot. When it comes to the humidity, I would agree. But I would take a warm climate over a cold climate every day of the week.
