I connected immediately to Beach Badge because I live on Cape Cod, a deeply seasonal and odd place to live, with tourists and businesses rolling in and out like tides. This one is a collection of pieces about the similarly afflicted Jersey Shore—with tons of stories about being on both sides of the area’s tourist service industry, bands, beaches, and a few reviews of local spots thrown in for good measure. Tons to read here, all interesting and well done. –Michael T. Fournier (
