As September ‘19 edged towards October, the fam and I had an open weekend, and we wanted to see if we could squeeze in one last blast of summer (OK, make that post-summer) at the Jersey shore.
The weather was supposed to be clear, bright, and in the high 70s Fahrenheit with zero humidity during the time that we were planning our jaunt, so the universe was telling us that this getaway idea was a good one.
We have a special affinity for Long Beach Island, which is an 18-mile-long, north-south stretch of land that’s packed from late June through Labor Day with 100,000-plus visitors from New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and of course New Jersey itself. Thanks to the timetable of our journey, LBI would be quiet, peaceful, and almost completely devoid of those pesky bennys and annoying out-of-towners who invade the island during the summer season.
