The Shore Region

New Jersey's Shore Region encompasses two counties: Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
The Shore Region is well known for its sandy beaches and coastal activities, but there are also many places that cater to the history and art connoisseur. For example, the Garden State Arts Center houses summertime entertainment in the form of concerts and next to the Arts Center is New Jersey's Vietnam Veteran's Memorial.
