A publication has announced the best beach in each state, and the one they chose for New Jersey is sure to upset some people in Monmouth & Ocean Counties.

The beach that was chosen by PureWow as the top one in the Garden State is Cove Beach in Cape May. Our exercise here is not to disregard the beauty of Cape May beaches. They're gorgeous and so is the town. That's not the point.

Our point here is to celebrate the amazing beaches here in our area. We want you, the locals to have their voices heard on which beach is your absolute favorite. It's a tough choice with the incredible beaches we're lucky enough to have in our backyard.

So, as we congratulate Cove Beach for their choice, we keep it a little closer to home and limit the voting here to Monmouth and Ocean County beaches. So, put your summer thinking caps on and choose your single favorite Monmouth/Ocean beach.

We know you love multiple beaches, but please pick only one and then vote. We'll publish our results soon!
