* '''The Jersey Shore:''' New Jersey's coastline, and a major summer destination for New Yorkers, Pennsylvanians, and New Jerseyans alike. Generally considered to consist the portions of Monmouth, Ocean, Atlantic, and Cape May Counties that [[CaptainObvious face the Atlantic Ocean]].[[note]]The portions of Monmouth County that face Raritan Bay and the portions of Cape May County that face Delaware Bay are generally not included in the "Shore." Also, Burlington County technically has a tiny portion facing the Atlantic in Bass River Township near the tripoint with Atlantic and Ocean Counties, but that area is a swamp with nothing in it.[[/note]] It used to have [[NeverLiveItDown a reputation for being dirty]] due to the infamous [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syringe_Tide "syringe tide"]] in the late '80s, when used syringes and other medical waste started washing up on the shore from the Fresh Kills landfill in Staten Island (in short, [[MisBlamed it wasn't even New Jersey's fault!]]). Now, thanks to Creator/{{MTV}}, it's has a reputation for being covered in [[TakeThat another kind of trash, once again imported from out of state]]. The Shore (outside of the Cape May peninsula, which was largely untouched) was among the hardest-hit areas on the East Coast in the wake of Hurricane Sandy in 2012, with many towns seeing homes washed away and their boardwalks destroyed in whole or in part. Locals affectionately call tourists either "Bennies" ,an acronym for Bayonne, Elizabeth, Newark, and New York, or "Shoobies" (originally meaning a person, usually from Pennsylvania, who came to the beach with lunch packed in a shoe box), depending on where you visit. \\

New Jersey is the fourth smallest state by land area in the US, but it is also the eleventh most populated and single most densely populated. It has a high level of ethnic and religious diversity, being home to Italians, Irish, Jews, [[UsefulNotes/{{Russia}} Russians]], Asians, Blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, [[UsefulNotes/{{Jamaica}} Jamaicans]], Haitians, [[UsefulNotes/{{Guyana}} Guyanese]], Trinidadians, etc. in large numbers. Its landscape is also highly diverse, especially for a state of its size, being home to forests, mountains, swamps, cliffs, white sand beaches, and miles of rolling farmland. It is the location of several military facilities, including one of the largest in the country, Joint Base [=McGuire=]-Dix-Lakehurst. It has the highest population density in the US, and combined with its [[UsefulNotes/NewJerseyTransit excellent system of public transit]], it is easy to get anywhere. New Jersey is the second most affluent state in the US, possesses one of the most highly-regarded [[UsefulNotes/AmericanEducationalSystem education systems]] in the country, and has the lowest poverty rate in the nation. There are affluent suburbs, bustling cities, and lush dairy farms all within a few miles of each other. In short, it's one of the most diverse states, filled to the brim with a plethora of different cultures and lifestyles.
