As we count down the days to Memorial Day weekend, we all know that we're also counting down the days to traffic, tourists, and crowds. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it's also not everyone's cup of tea. So, as Memorial Day Weekend approaches, there are two main strategies - stay here in Ocean County and enjoy, or get the heck out of town and relax.

Honestly, I think they're both reasonable options:

If you stay, you can of course enjoy the beaches, boardwalks, and local events. Most of us locals know the back ways to get to places to avoid traffic, the secret parking areas so you're not driving in circles looking, and the best restaurants and bars to hit.

On the other hand, if you get out of town you can enjoy different surroundings for a few days and if you have to run out, you don't have to budget extra time to get around.

So what's your Memorial Day Weekend strategy? Stay in Ocean County and enjoy, or get out of town and relax? Tell us in the comments!
