5 Places To Visit When You're At The Shore

5 Places To Visit When You're At The Shore

In the mood to try something new this summer? Here's a few of my favorite places on the way to the beach.

Summer is one of my favorite times of the year. I try to spend as much time down the shore as I possibly can. Sometimes, going to the same handful of places can get pretty boring.

If you have found yourself in a rut on where to stop this summer, let me help you out. This is just a (small) sample of a few of my favorite places to go. Most of these places I only recently found out about! Who knows, maybe we'll run into each other this summer.

1. The Cape May County Zoo in Cape May Court House, NJ.

This is the perfect spot if you and your friends are looking to have a nice day without spending a lot of cash! The zoo is free, although they accept (and recommend) a donation of any size to help keep the gates open. Personally, I like to spend most of my trip looking at the otters.

2. Sunrise Cafe in Ocean City, NJ.

This cute little cafe is a great breakfast and lunch spot. They serve the BEST freshly squeezed orange juice, and you even get a free magnet of their logo once you pay for your meal.

3. Aunt Betty's Ice Cream Shack in Ocean City, NJ. 

This ice cream shop is very small and only accepts cash, but believe me when I tell you that they have the best sundaes I've ever tasted!

4. Uncle Oogie's Pizzeria in Sea Isle City, NJ. 

For a few summers, my family would stay in SIC right across the street from Uncle Oogie's. They have a large selection of food to choose from and will even deliver pizza to you on the beach!

5. Drip 'n Scoop in Ocean City, NJ.

This place is probably the closest place to heaven on Earth! It's a gourmet donut shop that serves different flavors each day. You can get just a donut or you can get it cut in half and have them put ice cream in the middle. They also have delicious coffee and pressed juices. This is the perfect place to stop after a long day on the beach! It's only a couple of blocks from the boardwalk, too!

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

By now, it is safe to declare "Outer Banks" on Netflix as THE TV Show of quarantine.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
