    I live in a beach town about 60 miles south of Manhattan. It's a tourist spot in the summer so it gets crazy here. We have both mom and pop stores in a quaint downtown or we have the big chain stores available. While it feels really suburban, it's really not. People around here wouldn't tolerate not having access to the newest gadgets and technologies so we definitely have got everything at our finger-tips. The best part is, though, that we still have these great mom and pop stores and restaurants that make the freshest foods, carry one-of-a-kind gifts and art, and always know your name, even if you're only here in the summer!

    If you love the beach and everything that goes with that, this is your spot! The festivals, fairs, sandcastle building contests, etc. are all fun. There's every kind of water sport here and an abundance of fun activities for all ages. The food is great and diverse and there is no better place to get pizza! You can ride horses at a near-by farm in the morning and go sailing in the afternoon. We have wonderful local theatres inclusive of Two River and Count Basie in Red Bank.

    The biggest downfall about transportation in this area is that there are very few express trains or buses into Manhattan and you have to change trains in either Long Branch NJ or Newark, NJ making a trip that should take an hour take two hours. It's ridiculous!
