Hey Rat Rock Nation, summer is in full effect and before you know it “fall” will be here, with that we want to make sure your getting it all in on what the Jersey Shore has to offer and not miss out on any of the great things that you and your friends and family can be part of to make it the best one yet and unforgettable.

I’ve been living here at the Jersey Shore now for over 20 years in Belmar and I love it, and was brought down here as a kid growing up. I did grow up only a half hour away and it was really easy to get my feet in the sand if I needed to get away and I loved to be in that Atlantic Ocean and still do.

The Jersey Shore has done so much for me and my family including getting to work with my other family at 95.9 The Rat, and getting to party with the best of the best.  The Jersey Shore has so much to offer and really is a great place to have a great family day out or to get you out of any situation you might be going through.

If you or even need to get the family out and about and are looking for a great day,  here are some ideas at The Jersey Shore  to keep everyone with a smile on their faces. I came up with a list that might really help you and the family, friends out.  Remember it’s all about having fun and living it up, that to me is what the “Real” Jersey Shore is about.

Thank you for taking the time out to check this article out and as always I appreciate you for rocking out with me at Jersey’s Rat Radio 95.9 The Rat. -Gotts

  • 1. Whale Watching

    HOLD UP!! I know the perfect person to to have the most fun and get the greatest photos of all time with, you will have people not believing you when you show them some. My boy Bill McKim’s Jersey Shore Whale Watch Tour has the best of the best on catching one of God’s best creatures under the sea doing what they do best. They are truly a beautiful animal and to see one up close and personal gives a whole new meaning on life . You will enjoy the day on the water and when an over a 1000 pound whale jumps out of the water you will honestly be taken back. Don’t take my word for it go check it out.

  • 2. Atlantic City

    What can not be said about AC !! That is a Jersey Shore must have between the nightlife and hitting up the casinos, putting bets down and trying to hit big on the tables  and getting out to those beach parties. That is why Atlantic City was made and for us to enjoy it for. Rough day at home, the office, whatever the case may be AC can help you out and make you have a bunch of great stories to tell when you leave there.
