This past weekend I was lucky enough to tag-along with my boyfriend to his yearly family reunion in Bay Head, NJ. When I was first told of the plan to spend the weekend at the Jersey Shore, I admit I was a bit judgy. The Jersey Shore has previously occupied my mind with the image of that terrible MTV show, but as soon I we arrived I knew I was infinitely wrong.
Bay Head is best described as the Martha’s Vineyard, The Nantucket, The Hamptons of New Jersey. Mansions line each street, every one with perfectly appointed weathervanes, ship lap, and a pool larger than the last. It was the most wonderful spot for a long weekend and a family reunion. If you are needing a new place to explore on the East Coast and want to totally change your pre-existing notions towards the Jersey Shore, look at Bay Head!
