    Speaking of the beaches, they're now free once again to spend a day basking in the sun. Which is great news since, unlike the shoobies and bennys, we know there are still many epic beach days to be had especially since the temperatures don't start to drop until almost October.

    The rides are still open for a short while more on the boardwalks. With the shoobies gone, that means you'll be able to knock out all the rides in a fraction of the time. Question is, which pier are you going to start with?

    Okay, so not only Irish Weekend, but all the fun fall activities at the beach are coming up and they can't be missed. There's the Celebrate American parade this weekend on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Coming up this month, there's also Firemen's Weekend, Irish Weekend, and Boots At The Beach all in North Wildwood! Not to mention all the awesome fall beer events coming up all along the Jersey shore.
