Growing up at the shore, I never vacationed to the famous Jersey beach towns that so many flock to in the summer months like Wildwood, Seaside and Long Beach Island. I was a mile from the beach so getting a hotel room in another beach town, just miles down the road, would be a bit silly. Instead, during the summer months we vacationed and explored the lakes and coastlines of New England states like Maine and New Hampshire.
A few weekends ago a whole group of my college girlfriends, along with some new friends, headed down to Cape May for a bachelorette party. We had rented a beautiful, and highly recommended, shore house from VRBO (If you have not used VRBO for a vacation rental…you should look into it, it’s a great service. Also, here is the link to the gorgeous rental we stayed in: http://www.vrbo.com/324247 ).
