This week on FYI Philly, it's our annual down the shore special. And it's packed with things to do by the sea!

From dining destinations with a view, to new spots from Iron Chef Jose Garces, and the quintessential summer fare. Plus, a greenhouse where salt mined from the Ocean seasons your seafood. And a place for the dogs to hang.

FYI Philly airs Saturdays at 7 p.m. This week's encore show airs at Sunday at 1 a.m. Here are the details on this week's features:
