This summer, MMR is crowing the top attraction at the Jersey Shore. But you are responsible for picking it! Welcome to MMR’s Jersey Shore 64: FINAL 4

The down-the-shore-experts here at 93.3 WMMR got together and listed hundreds of their favorite spots located between Brigantine and Cape May. After lots of debate and a short ocean water splash fight (that stuff stings) they narrowed the list down to sixty four.

From there, it was all up to you! We tasked the MMR listeners with voting for their favorites every week in this ultimate beach battle.

The list started with over twenty bars/restaurants, four pizza places, some boardwalk staples, couple of diners, bunch of bakeries, multiple zoos (if you count some of the bars!), music venues, piers, parks, boutiques, surf shops, and one gigantic elephant

Now it’s down to four. Get to know your Fishy Final 4 then make your picks for the best spot at the Jersey Shore. Pierre Robert will broadcast from the winning location, and you can win $500 just for voting.
