A few of my best friends from college live, literally, on the Jersey Shore. We would watch Jersey Shore at school, and they would all complain that it’s nothing like MTV portrays it to be.
They film most of Jersey Shore in a town called Seaside, which is really sleazy. It’s a more tourist-y area where all the “bennys” (anyone who isn’t a local that comes to Jersey for the beach, aka Snooki) go to the beach.
I went to visit my friends yesterday, and the real Jersey Shore is so beautiful! One of my friends literally lives 5 minutes away from the beach, and said beach is huge, almost people-less, and the water (although cold) was seaweed free. It was a gorgeous day, which we spent tanning and swimming. (Probably the only thing related to the MTV’s Jersey Shore is that the inhabitants of the real Jersey Shore are just as obsessed with being tan.)
Have you ever been to the real Jersey Shore? Do you live in Jersey?
