One of the great things about living in New Jersey is the many beaches and boardwalks that we can enjoy.

Each is different and has its own personality.

Personally, I put our boardwalks in different categories.

For example, when I think of family fun, I immediately think of Jenkinson's in Pt. Pleasant Beach.

Jenks really has everything.

We're talking rides, games, a sweet shop, boardwalk contests, movies on the beach, an aquarium, and more.

If you're looking for some adult fun, hang out at Jenks Club or Martell's Tiki Bar.

Oh, did I mention that the beach is pristine?

Every time that I walk on the Asbury Park boardwalk I feel the history.

Asbury Park is all about culture. The art scene is always alive.

You can always find live music whether it's a big show at Convention Hall or Stone Pony or a small session at Wonder Bar.

Unlike other New Jersey boardwalks, which got a bad rap when MTV rolled into town with "Jersey Shore,” Wildwood is ideal for the little ones.

The self-proclaimed “Boardwalk of Fame and Happiness” touts plenty to keep kids diverted at its Morey's Piers, a collection of piers where rides cater to all ages. Standouts include a low-impact kiddie boat ride, medium-impact Doo Wopper Coaster, and high-impact Grand Prix Raceway.

I'm just thankful that so many amazing Jersey boardwalks are just a short trip away.
