More Than 100 Years of Playing on the Beaches of NJ [VINTAGE PHOTOS]

Spring is here, summer’s on the way and as the weather heats up, we find ourselves thinking longingly of the beach. With more than 100 miles of coastline, New Jersey’s beaches have lured tourists and summer visitors for centuries. Below is a collection of old photographs showing just that.
