7 Signs You're From the 732

Only the best part of New Jersey.
36769

If you're from New Jersey, you know how badly the state's looked down upon by outsiders (thanks a lot, Jersey Shore). But you know that all of those false accusations aren't true- the Garden State is your home and only you're allowed to make fun of it. Although Jersey's small, there are different regions and everyone thinks that their's is the best. Here are seven signs you're from the 732, AKA the best part of Jersey:

1. You know that Central Jersey is a place.

One of the biggest arguments is whether or not Central Jersey exists. I live in the middle of New Jersey, so it's pretty funny when people say it's not a real place. I'm not from South Jersey, and definitely not from North Jersey. Also, it's close to both Philadelphia and New York, not just one or the other. Perfect location.

2. Everywhere you go, you see a Wawa.

Legit everywhere, and you go there 24/7. All hail the holy grail.

3. Surf Taco means a lot to you.

Every time I come home from being away at school the first place I go to eat with my friends is Surf Taco. Even when I am home, Surf Taco's always on my mind. Who doesn't love a good taco with chips? P.S. I highly recommend their Teriyaki Chicken Taco, you won't regret it.

4. You go to all the summer concerts.

There's really nothing more fun than summer shows outside, and you already know that PNC Bank Arts Center and Stone Pony Summer Stage are the hot-spots. 'Tis the season of tailgating and enjoying a good show with your friends.

5. Two words: Pork. Roll.

I don't care what Chris Christie has to say, it's pork roll. Quite honestly, Taylor Ham just doesn't sound right. And what's better than a pork roll egg n' cheese on your favorite bagel? Nothing.

6. You live close to the beach...

Spring Lake, Manasquan, Asbury, you name it. You know these areas and where all of the good food spots are in each of them. Living so close to the beach makes for the perfect summers, but with summer comes the bennies.

7. ...So you can easily spot a benny.

If you're from Jersey and you don't know what a benny is, you most likely are one. Bennies usually come in packs; they bring lawn chairs and tents to the beach, wear socks and sandals, and have the "Jersey accent" because they're either from New York or close to.

5 Great Things About The Holiday Season In South Florida

Who said you can't go to the beach in the middle of December?

views

This is my first holiday season in college, and I have many friends who have come here to Florida Gulf Coast from out of state. I am an in-state student coming from Palm Beach, FL, where the sun is out year-round, and we take the boat out on Christmas evening. Peers from Chicago or New Jersey have asked me how it feels during the holiday season, and even though we don't have snow or a stash of sweaters to whip out from the back of our closet, we do have beautiful weather and many exciting events around the state that make the holidays in SoFlo very special.

Here are 5 things to look forward to in South Florida this holiday season!

1. Year-round Warm Weather!

Palm Beach Island, FL

SoFlo's "winters" consist of sunny afternoons and an occasional day below 60. Other than that, our weather stays moderately warm and beaches available every day of the year!

2. Christmas at Disney World!

Epcot at Disney

Kelli Payne

According to a Walt Disney Resort blog, Disney displayed nearly 8.5 million Christmas lights throughout the season, around 1,300 wreaths, and about 171.6 MILES of ribbon. Talk about dedication.

3. Beachy, Coastal Decorations!

Christmas Tiki Hut

Kelli Payne

From Christmas lights on palm trees to stockings hanging from the hurricane shutters, Floridians certainly have a way of putting their own spin on their holiday decor.

4. Wealthy Areas Who Get Extra AF

Palm Beach Gardens, FL

Kelli Payne

As many know, South Florida is a big hub for retirees. With that being said, a good amount of folk have a grand amount of time to decorate for the holiday season. Many neighborhoods collaborate and create a magical walkway for all to stroll through and enjoy beautiful lights.

5. Tropical Santas!

West Palm Beach, FL
