Belmar, New Jersey
Very few places on earth, can match the feeling one gets, simply from being in a town like Belmar, New Jersey on a nice day. As far as Jersey beach towns go, Belmar is the quintessential spot. The beach is big, the boardwalk is solid and long, and the town itself is perfect for a cruise around on your bike.
Unfortunately, like many Jersey Shore towns, Belmar is in New Jersey, which means bad characters will ultimately be around somewhere. When visiting NJ, it is important to never let your guard down. New Jersey could claim the “scumbag”, as its unofficial mascot.
