       WEEKEND GETAWAYS - Friday, November 30, 2007
    Make The Most Of Your Vacation - From Coast to Coast!


Greetings Getaway Lover,

This week we're off to awesome Atlantic City......

The Jersey Shore is 127 miles of public beachfront stretch-
ing like a pointing finger along the Atlantic Ocean from 
the Sandy Hook Peninsula in the north to Cape May at the 
southern tip. There is no one description of what it's 
like "down the shore." Things change town by town and 
sometimes season by season -- winter storms have a habit 
of rearranging beaches and boardwalks. 

Some shore towns, such as Wildwood, are party hot spots 
with all-out amusement piers; others, such as Ocean Grove, 
which was originally a Methodist camp meeting ground, 
Spring Lake, and Cape May, are more sedate Victorian 
enclaves. Atlantic City has its glitzy casinos. 

Happy Trails,
Jan
