We love and need our tourism season here at the Jersey Shore, but let’s be honest. Sometimes we need it more than we love it. We see a lot during tourism season, and we put up with a lot, too. So now that tourist season is over, we can now exhale and look back at the things we’re not going to miss about tourism season.

We know that  these things are part of the deal when you live at the Jersey Shore, and for the most part, we can deal with all of them, but after another long summer, it’s time to do our post Labor Day obligatory vent.

Here are the 5 things we won’t miss about tourist season...again.

5 Things We Won't Miss About Tourist Seaeson

There it is. Our obligatory post summer vent. But nothing can dampen our love for summer at the Jersey Shore. We're good until next summer. I feel better. And we do appreciate the tourists.

They probably vent at the end of the Season in These beach towns too

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. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

The States Where People Live The Longest

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
