This Year's Top Travel Destinations Announced!

Lonely Planet, the world’s largest travel guide book publisher, just announced their “Top 10 US Travel Destinations for 2014”. On that coveted list alongside such famous destinations as Yosemite National Park, Boston, MA, Las Vegas, NV, Lana’i Hawaii and the Central Coast of CA, is none other than The Jersey Shore. The intro to the Jersey Shore section reads: “When summer temperatures rise, the entire state of New Jersey tips eastward and rushes to the beach. The revered Jersey Shore is studded with resort towns, from classy to tacky, that fulfill the platonic ideal of how a long summer day should be spent.”

Highlights of the article include the revamping and revitalization of Asbury Park’s downtown, the many boardwalks that abound all up and down the Jersey Shore coastline, family fun at Jenkinson’s on the Pt. Pleasant Boardwalk, and under the subtitle “Victoriana” is a paragraph about Ocean Grove. Described as “a perfectly coifed, sober, conservative and quaint Victorian seaside town, with a boardwalk boasting not a single business to disturb the peace and quiet,” it goes on to talk about tent city, and compares the Great Auditorium with its vaulted interior, meticulous acoustics and historic organ to Utah’s Mormon Tabernacle.

The article closes by describing Asbury Park’s downtown as “probably the hippest on the Shore”, and recommends visitors take a stroll down Cookman Ave. lined with its charming shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.

The moral of the story - make your Jersey Shore vacation reservations soon. This article is going to make the Jersey Shore a popular summer vacation destination for 2014. Read more at: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/usa/travel-tips-and-articles/top-10-us-travel-destinations-for-2014
