10 Reasons You Know You've Spent Your Summers In Avalon

Cooler by a mile and my favorite place on Earth.

10 Reasons You Know You've Spent Your Summers In Avalon

For the first 18 years of my life, if I wasn’t busy with theatre at home, you would have found me with my with my toes in the water at my very favorite place in the world: Avalon, New Jersey. For nearly anyone whose ever been to Avalon and especially for those who’ve spent several summers or even winters there, they know what a special place Avalon is. It’s small enough to see familiar faces around and big enough to just get away and relax.

Here’s some things you’ll remember if you’ve spent some summers in Avalon:

1. The Avalon Kite Girl

The famous Avalon Kite Girl is there to greet you when you arrive on the island!

2. “Cooler By A Mile”

If you’ve spent some time in AV you’re pretty familiar with the slogan “Cooler By A Mile."

3. Taking pictures by the Avalon Lifeguard boats

A popular photography spot, the Avalon lifeboats make a great backdrop for family photos and are perfect for a great Christmas card.

4. Fishin’ Pier Grille

Fishin’ Pier Grille is the best, hands down. It’s a must do when you go to Avalon; I even found myself there many mornings! Good news, they’re now expanding to Stone Harbor as well.

5. Avalon Freeze

I’ll take it over Dairy Queen any day! If you’re in Avalon, make sure you try their malted milkshake.

6. Hoy's

Whatever you need, let’s be real Hoy's probably sells it. It’s the go-to place in a pinch and let’s not forget that they sell hermit crabs, aka every 6-year-olds favorite summer pet.

7. Sylvester’s Fish Market and Restaurant

Chances are if you’ve spent at least one summer in Avalon, you’ve been to Sylvester’s. I’m pretty sure my older brother would eat every meal there if he could.

8. 29th Street Deli & Grill

Nothing is a better beach break than a sandwich from the Deli next to Avalon Supermarket. It has the perfect food for you to take back and eat on the beach, away from the seagulls, of course.

9. Kohler’s Bakery

Every Saturday my grandad surprised us four kids with doughnuts. Kohler’s always had the best doughnuts and they made for some sweet, pun intended, memories!

10. Movie nights on the beach

Grab your deli sandwiches and head over to the beach for movie night! Once a week they showed cute movies for families!

Thank you for all of the sweet memories, Avalon. You will forever hold a special place in my heart, and I can’t wait to smell that salty air again soon.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.
