Ocean City NJ The coolest city to visit



What makes a Jersey Shore town “cool”?

It could be a landmark like in Barnegat Light.

And the story? Asbury Park has a lot of them.

Maybe it’s the charm. I think of Cape May when that word is used.

Lifestyle site The discoverer went state by state and identified the “coolest” city in each.

They really didn’t reveal what criteria they used to make their final decision.

Frankly, I don’t envy the job of narrowing down a choice to just one town in Jersey.

Keep in mind that this choice wasn’t just for the Jersey Shore, it was for the entire state.

Here’s what the site says about Jersey’s “coolest town”.

Eight miles of beach, an oceanfront promenade full of tasty treats, and dozens of cute boutiques, Jersey’s Ocean City is unlike anything you’ve seen on reality TV shows. This old-fashioned seaside resort has attracted visitors since the 19th century and it’s no wonder with all of its picturesque monuments and family atmosphere.

Congratulations to Ocean City!

I cannot dispute this choice.

The beach is clean and beautiful.

There are trendy stores like Surf Boardwalk Mall, Stainton’s and Downtown.

Gillian’s Wonderland Pier and OC Water Park are guaranteed fun.

There is also a ton of history in Ocean City. Everything is documented in the historical museum.

What is “cool” is extremely subjective. I’m sure not everyone will agree with choosing The Discoverer, but I’m “cool” with it.

Not only are these Jersey towns cool, but they’re the best places to live in the state!
