The Best Flavors of Summer at the Jersey Shore

When it comes to summer at the Jersey Shore, all five senses are in overdrive.

The smell of water coming out of a hose immediately takes me back to filling a kiddie pool in the backyard and taking a sip from the hose.

I can see myself running through the sprinkler with the smell of freshly cut grass.

The sound of the ocean waves and the squawking seagulls takes me back to summer days at Island Beach State Park.

Sure, those seagulls tried to snag a bowl of cheese every now and then, but their sound makes me happy.

The feeling of sand between my toes reminds me of walking back and forth along the shoreline looking for shells.

I always tried to find scallops, my mother’s favorite.

The sight of the flashing lights of the boardwalk makes me miss summer evenings on Jenkinson’s Boardwalk as he drives through the Super Himalaya.

I loved it when they sped up the ride and made it go backwards… what a rush.

It’s amazing how activating one of your senses can take you back to your fondest memories.

There’s no better time to be on and off the Jersey Shore than summer. The sights, sounds, smells and tastes… nothing can compare.

As a kid from the Jersey Shore, there are certain flavors that immediately take me back to some of my favorite memories.

I apologize in advance if your mouth starts to water as you sample the best flavors of summer on the Jersey Shore.
