FYI Philly's 2019 Summer Shore Special

Jersey is the place to be during the summer. We take you to all the best spots, from great restaurants to workouts on the beach to some amazing taffy.

The Happiest Seaside Town in America
With eight miles of beach and bay, two-plus miles of boardwalk and lots of wacky and family-friendly events all year long, it's no surprise Ocean City is THE shore pick for so many people.

We go to Atlantic City where there's lots new to see and do. Starting with a new sports bar and spa with a new look.


Here's what's new in AC for 2019
Atlantic City just added two new options for fun and relaxation! The Borgata is betting on a new sportsbook entertainment area with a $12 million destination bar -- the Moneyline Bar & Book. Over at the Tropicana, it's wellness inspiration from the sea at the newly redone Sea Spa, for when it's time to unwind and escape!

The rebuilding and rebranding of Atlantic City is currently underway.


The Orange Loop
Jeannette Reyes explores a section of Atlantic City that's rebuilding and rebranding itself. The Orange Loop is named after the section of the Monopoly board: New York, St. James and Tennessee Avenue and a group of developers, entrepreneurs and local leaders are literally building houses and hotels. The section was in bad shape just a few years ago and now it is becoming a destination just off the boardwalk with a New Orleans style restaurant, a beer hall, live music, yoga and a coffee shop. And that is just the beginning.

We did some shopping down the shore for the latest summer trends.


Summer Shore Fashion
When you're on the beach, the bathing suit is the official uniform. But when you hit the boards at night, you may want to take the dress code up a notch. So Melissa Magee did some shopping down the shore for the latest summer trends.
