Summer is winding down but there are still plenty of beach days left to enjoy. So as you are reading this, check your calendar on your phone and decide which days to take off so you can go and enjoy a beach day here at the Jersey Shore. Do it so you don't find yourself in February kicking yourself when it's 10 degrees and your car is ice cold heading out to work. There is plenty of great beaches to choose from here in New Jersey. I personally don't think there is a bad beach in the Garden State. So to come up with a list of the 12 beaches you need to visit is a tough one to come up with. The good news for me is that I did not come up with this list but "Wealth of Geeks" did. Their list of the 12 you need to see this summer is a good one and travels from Monmouth County all the way down to Cape May County.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

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.
