Discover South Jersey Shore

It's hard to think about summer on the South Jersey Shore without thinking about food. From street vendors selling pizza, hot dogs and clam rolls to fine seafood restaurants serving lobster and scallops, the South Jersey Shore offers a wide range of meals for locals and visitors. Of course, the strong Italian heritage in the area guarantees many fine pasta choices, but you can also choose from an array of international cuisines, including Greek, Chinese, Thai, Middle Eastern and Korean. The South Jersey Shore is famous for its frankfurters. This means that there are scores of hot dog stands and joints scattered down the shore. Doughnuts are another iconic food for the region, fluffily hand-baked, topped and filled. There are several shops that make fresh gourmet doughnuts for a special sweet delicacy.
