Guide to the Jersey Shore

Three miles of arcade games, roller coasters, and waterslides make Morey’s Piers Wildwood’s most famous attraction and New Jersey’s most famous boardwalk. 3501 Boardwalk, Wildwood, (609) 729-3700

Be the ringleader of a French-fry-and-hot-dog spectacular at The Circus Drive-In. Those that don’t take their food to go can eat it under the restaurant’s big top. 1861 Rt. 35, Wall, (732) 449-2650

It’s 1950s/’60s summer every summer in the Wildwood’s historic Doo Wop Motel District. The nation’s largest concentration of Googie-style motels (think retro signs, plastic “starbursts” and names like “StarLux Hotel” and “Lollipop Motel”) is still open to vacationers. between Pittsburgh Avenue and 3rd Street from Atlantic Avenue down to the beach

Meet the kitschiest creature on the world’s kitschiest coast, at Margate, home to Lucy the Margate Elephant. The wooden pachyderm is one of the most iconic landmarks down the Shore, or for that matter, statewide. 9200 Atlantic Avenue, Margate City, (609) 823-6473

Fresh seafood and Shingle-style mansions are two defining aspects of the Jersey Shore, and they come together beautifully at The Columns—so named for the white colonnade on its basically beachfront terrace. 601 Ocean Avenue, Avon, (732) 988-3213
