Doesn't living in Gloucester township make it more likely that you would be going to the shore in Avalon, Ventnor, Ocean City, Avalon, Stone Harbor, Cape May or Wildwood. This also showcases LBI events.

Yup, it probably is. This weekly article is content shared among the roughly 80 Patch sites in New Jersey, though. We've featured events in Ocean City, Cape May and Atlantic City, just to name a few SJ shore towns, in recent weeks.
