For the best sunset views and excellent food at the Jersey Shore, I always head to Beach Creek, nestled right along the bay in Wildwood, N.J.
On my first trip there this summer, I enjoyed a selection of delicious light bites and drinks from the restaurant’s extensive menu, offering fresh raw bar options, a number of appetizers, several entrees and desserts. The popular restaurant is always mobbed on summer weekends, so we settled at the spacious bar for our meal.
Paired with my mojito, my dining companion and I feasted on clams casino, featuring fresh clams baked with an indulgent applewood smoked bacon compound butter and parmesan bread crumbs; crispy coconut shrimp, baked in a light but tasty coconut batter served with a zesty mango dipping sauce; and creamy Old Bay crab dip, boasting fresh blue crab claw meat with crunchy crostinis for dipping.
While watching the sunset, snacking and daydreaming about which one of the boats docked on the nearby marina we’d like to have one day, we also enjoyed live entertainment from a fun one-man band. In addition to friendly service and top-notch food unlike other typical beach food, Beach Creek also offers nightly entertainment featuring performers from around the area.

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
