We are very fortunate here at the Jersey shore and all throughout New Jersey to have some of the biggest stars in the world call our area home. For me, Bruce and Bon Jovi obviously jump to the front of my mind. Of course we just lost Whitney Houston, and you can't have this conversation without talking about Frank Sinatra. Check out a pretty complete list from wikipedia.org.

Of course the Garden State went to the moon with Buzz Aldrin, and headed to the big (and little) screen with John Travolta, Joe Pesci, Danny DeVito and Michael Douglas, plus think of all the things we've learned from Martha Stewart.

It's pretty cool to know that with a trip to Red Bank or Freehold, you just may come across one or two of the biggest rock stars ever, just grabbing some dinner or getting some ice cream with the family. It's another reason we love living at the Jersey shore!
