Summer 2022 would be a lot more fun without these pesky old beach rules!

Memorial Day is just around the corner.

Pretty soon, everyone in Ocean County will be flocking to the beach!  It's truly the best time of the year at the Jersey Shore.

We're so lucky to live in an area with beautiful beaches and so much to do during the summertime.  But, let's face it, some changes need to be made.

There are some old Ocean County beach rules that need to be put to bed once and for all!  I'm sure you've sat on the beach and have wondered how other beach states can get away without the laws that New Jersey has in place.

I know what you're thinking.  These laws are in place for safety reasons!  And who's going to pay for all of this?

Sure, there's a time and place for safety.  And it is important.  But there's also room for efficiency and compromise.  I really think some of these outdated rules can be tweaked in a way that everyone wins!

We can let people enjoy the beach in new ways while still setting boundaries for safety.  I'd also argue that changing some of these laws may drive more business and money to the Jersey Shore.  Maybe, changing these laws could pay for itself.

It's time New Jersey gets on board with other states and gets rid of these outdated beach rules.  All it takes is a little thinking outside the box!

Are you with me in thinking these old NJ beach laws need to be put to bed?

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
