Larry Mendte (CBS3) and Dawn Stensland (WTXF-29) –  Mendte said, “There are four things I do in Ocean City that I don't do in Philly - ride a bike on the boardwalk, eat breakfast, kayak and relax.”


Cydney Long – (CBS3) -  “I'm biased -- my parents live there.  I also love shopping & restaurants in Avalon & Stone Harbor.”

Bob Kelly (CBS3) – “I love Ocean City. Great family atmosphere, the rides are perfect for the kids, no Super Duper Loopin' rollercoaster. And lets not forget Johnson's popcorn!!”

Brigantine, N.J.
Robin Reiger (CBS3) – “Tom (Tom McGinnis of the Sixers), Kenna (their daughter) and I love it.  It has big clean beaches.   Kenna can run without stepping on someone else’s towel.  It is a great location, just a short ride down the expressway.  It’s a growing community, but it still has a small town feel with festivals and events for all ages. Shhhhhh, don’t tell too many people.”


Avalon, N.J.

Atlantic City, N.J.

Alycia Lane (CBS3) – “I love the glitz and glam...and wonderful shows/entertainment!”


Cape May, N.J.
