Every freakin' chance I get. Just give me a Newark Star Ledger under my arm and a coffee in my hand and I'm set.

Default They are all over

I've actually not gone to one directly but know a lot of friends that love it in Wisconsin. Pricey but really fun.

I wanted to comment on the price in general. There is an indoor water park (Key Lime Cove) that opened up literally 10 min from my house in Illinois. We avoided it for a year, not just for cost (about $300/night) but also out of irritation of having to stay in their rooms in order to use the park when we live 10 min away.

Earlier this month we decided to just do it since we are moving soon anyway. They dropped their prices to $159/night, including a large breakfast buffet for everyone. That made it more affordable for us as a "treat" for spring break. It was absolutely a fabulous park, and it included a beautiful tot area just for my 20 month old.

So keep an eye on discounts b/c they may pop up unexpectedly.

LOL, see, I really did live in South Jersey. For boards we went to Wildwood.

I think they should hire you to hang out & mingle, & furnish the Star Ledger & coffee.

Now there's a sweet gig. A Star Ledger under one arm, an Atlantic City Weekly under the other and a coffee in my hand.

Awesome.

Yup Don't let them tell you that being a Jerseyboy disqualifies you. The Leni Lenape were in Jersey.

This is off topic, but the rule of thumb growing up in NJ was if you were from North Jersey you spent your younger years walking the boards at Seaside in the summer. Anyone from south Jersey, or that totally foreign city of Phiily spent their time in Long Beach Island or south. Or maybe walking the asphalt of Ocean City. Rarely would these 2 distinct populations mix.

I had no clue what a Mummer was until I became college age!!
