The show attracts precisely the kind of vacationer Seaside Heights has worked so hard to minimize. Seaside Heights was once a great vacation destination for the average american family and groups of middle income vacationers. While it has always had to manage an 'element' of out of control groups who frequent the shore to abuse people, alcohol and anything else that crosses their path, this show is a magnate for precisely the kind vacationer Seaside Heights does not want to emphasize or attract.
The show may bring in thousands of cast, crew and spectators for rentals, dining and entertainment, in the long run it will do more harm than good. The time is ripe for Seaside Heights to attract vacationers with modest budgets and a desire for good, clean fun in the sun. With tight budgets, most people have had to cut back on scale and length of their vacation time (if they are lucky enough to be able to even take one). That leave the Jersey Shore a perfect place to plan a vacation to, as it is close, affordable and offers so much to so many.
What the heck are the powers that be thinking? Who's looking after the big picture for the residents and business people of Seaside Heights?... more
Depending on your price range, Haddonfield in South Jersey is really nice. There's a main street area where you can sit and have coffee but yet you are still surrounded by mature trees and greenery. And if you desire more of a night life, you are close enough to Philadelphia and Atlantic City.
Best to you!

Where in Middletown are you staying? If you are staying near Red Bank, DISH is a GREAT restaurant to go to. It has amazing food and a great atmosphere. It's a BYO and the prices are reasonable compared to the rest of Red Bank. Everything is home made and they have one of everything. And don't forget to save room for their famous bread pudding for dessert!
While I have been to Nicholas Restaurant and do agree that the food there is very good, it is VERY expensive. You will get the same quality at DISH without the HUGE bill.... more
I am not following your question, and am asking for clarification. You want to know about homes sold for more than 5M? Did you mean 500K? How does the gogo bar fit into the sold homes? Are these interests related?
