When friends come to visit me here in Ocean County, there are usually a few specific places that I make a point to take them...

Of course, one of the boardwalks is usually the first stop; Seaside Heights, Point Pleasant Beach, and/or LBI (depending on where they're coming from, if there are any kids along, how much time we have, etc).

But there are also other great places to show off in Ocean County.

It can be fun to drive through some of wealthy beachfront neighborhoods and gawk at the shore palaces. There are plenty of fantastic dining options, and of course what summer visit to Ocean County would be complete without an evening at a Lakewood Blueclaws game?

So when you're entertaining out of town company, where do you make a point to take them?
