Shore points are like sports teams. Chances are you already have a favorite, passed down for generations and generations, and are prepared to defend its righteous honor. But let's say you're open to trying something different this year (or just want a reminder why your beach is the Best Beach). Here are our picks, whether you're packing up the boogie boards or the ghost-hunting gear.
For the daytripper: Brigantine
Tucked away to the north of Atlantic City, Brigantine tends to get passed over for the flashy boardwalks and posh condos of the Exit 7S shore points. Which is great news for you, daytripper—not only can you get there in an hour from the city, but the parking is abundant and there's plenty of room on the sand. Pro tip: Set up your umbrella near the Laguna Grill, whose top-notch beach bar is a favorite among locals and in-the-know shoobies alike.
