Jersey Shore people are sweet, nice generous and fun. And we are many other positive things as well. But none of us are going to win any pronunciation bees, now are we?

We know it, and we embrace it. We say some things differently. Let's call it our own special way. And we're not apologizing about it. As a matter of fact, we embrace it and celebrate it.

When we wake up, we can't function until we have our first cup of caw-fee. That's right, caw-fee. Frankly, we think anything pronounced cah-fee is a little high brow, and probably doesn't have enough caffeine.

Hope we helped!

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns.
