Dine and view the Connecticut River from The Back Porch

The Back Porch – a great waterfront restaurant directly on the west bank of the Connecticut River just before you reach the bridge on I-95. Within a mile from the highway, and with equally good view and food, it’s well worth a detour. Casual dress, moderately expensive, altogether a memorable spot.

Monmouth County, where the Jersey Shore begins

Monmouth County encompasses approximately twenty miles of beachfront along the Jersey Shore, beginning at the Atlantic Highlands and snaking its way down to Manasquan, with all the other towns in between. Each town has its own brand or logo that’s easily recognizable on car bumpers and car windows. It’s a pride sticker that displays the initials of the town, AH for Atlantic Highlands, or OG, for Ocean Grove.
