I cannot be happier with how my travel presentations have turned out. Whether it was only two, eight, twelve, or even twenty-eight in attendance, it has been a true pleasure sharing my wealth of knowledge with the public. Over the past year, my cruising presentation has made a huge splash. My program on Amtrak travel has opened the public’s eyes considerably. My Disney World presentation is slowly gaining popularity, while my Washington DC program is picking up the pace hence the spring time approaching.
Being a long-time New Jersey resident, I couldn’t help but share my New Jersey side with the public. For fifteen glorious years, my family and I had a shore home in Pt. Pleasant. Our home was located on a lagoon. It was fun enjoying the lagoon and our pool. It was a fun experience having pool parties and sharing our home with our neighbors. Still, I enjoy driving down the Garden State Parkway to soak up all the fun the shore area has to offer. There is no doubt about it.
What is this new presentation about? It’s very simple. The presentation will feature highlights of the major New Jersey shore towns, from Long Branch to Cape May. Long Branch is known for its upscale boardwalk area. Asbury Park is home to the Stone Pony, where Bruce Springsteen began his musical career. Belmar is home to surfing competitions and avid fishermen. Spring Lake is home to upscale living and a tranquil boardwalk area. Manasquan’s downtown area is well-known for its buzzing small businesses. Point Pleasant, Bay Head, and Seaside Heights are for families looking for adventure and good times around the corner. Atlantic City is a destination for people with that little gambler inside. Lastly, Cape May is a southern New Jersey shore town with a Gilded Age flavor on each and every corner. North to south, every town is known for something special.
Each and every New Jersey shore town has its very own claim to fame. It’s not just the towns with all the fame and excitement. Sandy Hook, home to the Gateway National Recreation Area, is a place with something for everyone to enjoy. Whether it is fishing, singing “America The Beautiful” at The Seagull’s Nest, or just baring it all at Gunnison Beach, it is the area of the New Jersey Shore that welcomes thousands daily. It is a place where beach goers can enjoy New Jersey’s beaches in all fun ways imaginable. Who doesn’t like walking along a long stretch of beach au naturel? Who doesn’t enjoy the ocean and sand in the way mother nature intended? Further, who doesn’t get a chuckle out of the term “sandy bottoms”? Ultimately, who doesn’t like watching the airplanes take off and land at JFK Airport all day long, while striking up a friendly conversation in the birthday suit? Sandy Hook has it all.
What else about this presentation should have the public so excited? The presentation will include tips on packing, proper beach gear, and other accessories which shore goers must keep in mind. Plus, tips on restaurants, transportation, hotels, and entertainment will be shared. All of the key talking points will be featured. No one will ever have to scour through more than a dozen New Jersey shore brochures again.
Of all of the travel presentations I have written, I am enjoying putting this one together. This presentation is going to be truly special. Not everyone is aware of the many jewels and perks that the New Jersey shore is famous for. Some have their own favorite town and forget about the rest. This presentation is going to inspire hundreds, or perhaps even thousands, to get out of their homes and venture out to places they have never experienced. This presentation will enable all travelers (including day trippers) to enjoy New Jersey for all the great things her one hundred and forty-one miles of shoreline has in store for them. “The New Jersey Shore: A coastline of lifestyle, leisure, and living color” is set to be completed by late May 2016. It’s a great presentation everyone will truly appreciate. I can be “shore” of that!
