Beach House Spectacular: Jersey's Dirty Waters

June 28, 2006 at 5:47 PM | by | ()

When the rain comes down like it has been on the East Coast, the ocean is likely to get a dump of sewage and other stormwater run-off. But it wouldn't be a Jersey Shore Summer if the beaches weren't closed because of excess fecal matter or elevated bacteria levels. (To be fair, this happens quite a lot in California too.)

You can check which beaches are closed at NJ Beaches. Today's report says:

Brown and York Avenue beaches in Spring Lake and The Terrace beach in Sea Girt are closed today as a precaution due to recent rainfall and the resulting stormwater discharge from Wreck Pond. All other lifeguarded ocean beaches are open.

If you want to learn more about what's in the water ("Know before you go") then Earth 911 is the official beach and water monitoring service for the Jersey Shore. There's even a nifty Google Mash-Up (pictured) for each monitoring station so you should always be informed.

When you get sick of laying on the beach, riding bikes, fishing and other outdoorsy types of activities, make your way down to the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City.

Shockingly, it's not owned by Donald Trump. The hotel's casino is unveiling the largest poker room in AC on June 30. The joint will have 85 tables packed into a 21,500-square-foot room. Also included are:

An eighteen-table High Limit Room offering food service; a nine-table tournament area offering bleacher seating for tournament viewing that can be partitioned off as a "reserved" poker area, and a 58-table Main Poker Room offering live poker action outfitted with plasma televisions. As an added convenience, a safe deposit box room is provided by Borgata for poker customers.

You know to keep your frozen heads safe while you play a round or two.

All the usual games like Texas Hold'em, Seven-Card Stud and Omaha will be played. And to celebrate the poker room, the Borgata is hosting a series of events throughout the summer including the Holiday Weekend Poker tournament from June 30 to July 4 that has a $50 prize pool guaranteed.

Lighthouse Lovers' Wet Dream

No trip to Long Beach Island on the Jersey Shore would be complete without a trip to "Old Barney", the lighthouse at the northern tip of the island.

The lighthouse was built in 1857 after an initial structure was deemed inadequate and ended up sleepin' wit da fishes (OK, it fell into the ocean.) Today it's the second tallest lighthouse in the U.S. but its light doesn't actually function anymore; that stopped in 1944. However, you can climb the tower if you're into that sort of thing. Or you can go crabbing off the jetty rocks surrounding it. Or you can just take a picture of it from afar and get back to your regularly scheduled tanning session.

Last year, we checked out the Live Cam of the Jersey Shore courtesty of

This year we looked at some of the Zoom Cam shots the site offers. These pics are essentially Jersey Shore people hanging out on the beach, eating ice cream and engaging in some late night make-out in the sand down in Point Pleasant.

Ah...summer loving.

Beach House Spectacular: Jersey Shore

April 27, 2006 at 10:35 AM | by | ()

Click here to go straight to the Jersey Shore Beach Houses Map

Yesterday, Jaunted launched the first of a three-part series covering the places you'll be this summer if you're vacationing in the Northeast. Yeah, yeah, we know we are seconds away from our first email pointing out a Northeastern bias. You can change that:

Send along tips, photos, rumors, gossip, recommendations, locations and traffic busters to our map editors, become a member and comment on the beach house stories below, and add to the Jaunted-Flickr photo pool so your fellow readers can satisfy their voyeuristic summer fantasies. Why? While this may be a lofty goal, we are hoping by the end of the summer, these maps and stories will leave you with a helpful guide to beach housing in the Northeastern U.S., circa 2006.  Whether or not that happens is up to you.

We started things off with Maine yesterday, continue today with the Jersey Shore, and end with Long Island tomorrow. Don't forget your sunblock.

The Jersey Shore; sure, there are plenty of stereotypes about the place, but we all know someone who spent their summers here. Unlike the more insular beach communities to the north and east, the Jersey Shore has something for everybody. Even Guidos have feelings, right?
