Top 5 Places to Visit on Your Last Minute NJ Beach Trip

Top 5 Places to Visit on Your Last Minute NJ Beach Trip

One of the biggest perks I share with my clients about relocating to the Philadelphia area and the surrounding suburbs is the close proximity to beautiful beaches and shore towns. Within about an hour or so you can take a quick trip to local beaches up and down the coast of New Jersey with little to no added stress. Each shore town has a fantastic local history, unique flair, and fun activities for the whole family. Even though summer is winding down, there is still plenty to do and see at our lovely shore towns. Starting in the northern part of the state with Asbury Park and working your way down to the tip of NJ in Cape May for a gorgeous sunset, I promise you will have the most amazing experience. Keep reading for my carefully curated list of your must see Jersey Shore towns on your last minute beach trip, and let me know if there are any beach towns you think should be added to my list.

Need a Slice of Heaven? Try A Hellstrip Garden

Need a Slice of Heaven? Try A Hellstrip Garden

Curb appeal starts at the curb so instead of a barren patch of grass that your hose or sprinkler can’t reach or a peeing stopping spot for dogs, why not make your hellstrip a heavenly oasis? One thing to consider while planning your hellstrip garden is that it will be more vulnerable to the goings-on in the street, so make sure to choose hearty plants. Also, this strip of grass is often part of the public thoroughfare, so make sure you check with your township or municipality to obtain any necessary permits. There may also be rules about height, proximity to hydrants or powerlines, and the like, so be sure to check that you’re in compliance.

Holiday at Paper Mill Glen - Erdenheim

Holiday at Paper Mill Glen - Erdenheim

Over the years I have had the pleasure of representing the sellers of several houses in the 1955 neighborhood dubbed by the developer as "Holiday at Paper Mill Glen". Today, I listed another one at 913 Harston Lane. The first owner of this particular home still had the marketing brochure from when he purchased his brand new home. Today that brochure lives in the archives at the Springfield Township Historical Society. I thought it would be fun to take a side-by-side look at the spec sheets and some photos of homes that I have sold to see what changes people have made over the years.

At Home for Arbor Day 2020

At Home for Arbor Day 2020

Arbor Day promotes cleaner air and water, protecting wildlife in their natural habitats, and improving human health — all through planting and nurturing trees. National Arbor Day will be celebrated on April 24, 2020 and this year’s Arbor Day will be quite different than celebrations in the past. Due to Covid-19, local Arbor Day will be postponed and our celebration of trees will move from community events to at-home activities. The photo above is a tree we got free as a sapling from a Springfield Township event in 2016, pictured below. That's 9-year-old Felix in the neon sweatshirt hanging on every word...

Hooked on The Peg Rail - A Simple, Functional Home Organizer

Shaker peg rails have been around for centuries, though they’ve recently hit the eye of trendspotters. Used since the 18th century in the homes of the Shaker sect of Quakerism, who believed in clean, functional dwelling spaces, peg rails served to organize every room of the home. Shakers, who often lived communally with multiple families under one roof, believed in hard work, symmetry, order, and simplicity in all things as a form of spiritual practice. The peg rail is an example of one of the solutions the Shakers formed to organize the clothing, tools, toys, and furniture of a number of residents.
