One of the wonderful things about owning a Bergen County home is how close you are to so many things. Every season has it’s sports and activities. Bergen County is always within an easy 1-2 hour drive which makes for lots of fun family trips. This is particularly true when we get to beach weather.
When people come here to buy a home in Bergen County they often ask “How easy is it to get to the city?” They are concerned with transportation to New York City. Once they live in a Bergen County home, however, they soon ask about other things. When beach weather arrives they’ll ask “How long does it take to get to the beach?”
With the summer season just beginning, it’s time to think of going to the Jersey Shore. Actually, you never say you’re going TO the shore. Here in Bergen County we say we’re going DOWN the shore. That’s because Bergen County homes are north of the shore so our famous beaches are south of where we live.
Point Pleasant NJ is a very popular destination and it’s close. It’s only a short 90 minutes from your front door whether you live in Tenafly, Paramus or Ridgewood or anywhere else in our county. Just hop on the Garden State Parkway or the New Jersey Turnpike. You’ll find that sooner than you’d think you’ll be on the beautiful sandy beaches of the New Jersey Shore.
Every year New Jersey Monthly Magazine publishes it’s annual shore guide. This is one issue you do not want to miss. From Atlantic City to Sea Girt and beyond you’ll find everything you need to know about what’s happening down the New Jersey shore this season. Once you read it, you can plan your next trip down the shore from your Bergen County home!
