July 2021: Summer Fun Guide
The days are longer, the skies are bright and sunny, and New Jersey seems to be getting close to what we’d all like to think of as normal. We are pleased to see that local stores and restaurants are poised to thrive again, downtown streets are buzzing with weekend crowds, and the Shore appears to be heading for a blockbuster season. Even rush-hour traffic is something to cheer (well, sort of).
We know our readers have summer fun on their minds, so this month’s issue has plenty of ideas for activities the whole family can enjoy. Staying with the summer theme, we head to Jersey beach towns and guide you on a crawl through the Shore’s antique-shopping scene. We’ve also tapped into New Jersey pride for a story on the enterprising farmers who are raising exotic produce in the Garden State.
If that sound like a normal issue of New Jersey Monthly, we’ve done our job.
