It's been years since "Jersey Shore" was last on MTV. But still to this day, the "Jersey Shore" house and the t-shirt shop where the cast worked are among the first places that tourists stop to take pictures.

Before I get too into this, let me say that I appreciate each and every visitor that we get here in Ocean County (ok, maybe not "every", but most). Especially in a post-Sandy world, the tourism dollars are invaluable and very much appreciated.

I just think that there are better reasons to come here.

Ok, so the TV show was a cultural touchstone, for better or worse, but we've got so much more to offer.

So when tourists come to Ocean County, who or what do you think they should be taking their photos with? Tell us in the comments!
