I'm still pondering this. Parts of Maine have temperatures in the 90s during the summer, but the water is very cold. There's no skiing in South Carolina, but there's at least one ski shop.

Thatís one thing I miss, itís usually a few degrees warmer at the shore. Philly and most of south Jersey would get snow, and weíd get rain. Itís been mild so far.

To mention some places. Belmar, Barnegat, Tuckerton

You can get an off season rental for $900 a month on an island, you have to move out on Memorial day though.

I'm thinking of a house or duplex you can get an apt. in a complex 10 min from the ocean easy.

I did find a couple of reasonably priced listings for Tuckerton (year-round), how is that area & looks like it isn't that far from the beach...?

Tuckerton is pretty far from a beach it is a sea port but it is not a beach town. It is a pretty normal suburban town that just happens to have a seaport. It’s not a place that people go to vacation.

If you specify what you are looking for aside from being near the beach i think we could help more than just tossing out various towns. I would also suggest you come vacation down here in the spring before it gets very expensive, and drive around to the different beach towns and see what you like.

I'm definitely planning to come down possibly this winter , and / or in the spring. :-) , I enjoy exploring new places & yes sometimes maps/ photos can be misleading .

I'd like to be just a few miles from a beach in, or close to, town/city that has stores & services, restaurants, as opposed to being in the countryside or off the beaten path. Culture (art, music and museums) are important as well but I can drive to those. I don't have a problem commuting 30 or 45 minutes each way to work. It appears Atlantic City/Ocean City have many hotel jobs & all the areas seem to need home health aides & assisted living aides.

You don’t have to be that far from the beach. Again there are going to be yearly rentals that are even on the beach in your price range. The problem with being a few miles from the beach, is you’re going to have to pay to park at just about any beach you go to in the summer. You’re also going to sit in horrendous traffic to get into the beach town on weekends. If I wanted to be close to the beach, I would look for a place within walking distance to a beach. It is easy to believe that a rental two blocks from the beach has to be more expensive than one and a town that is not near the beach, but it is not necessarily the case. My apartment on the Ocean City boardwalk was cheaper than an apartment in a crappy complex in Somers point would have been (which is the next town over the bridge)

In terms of culture, Cape May by far has the most. It is something of an artist enclave there, there are play houses, Victorian history, etc. It would put you very far from the mall, but not too far from supermarkets another things. The beach towns that are closest to malls and other sorts of civilization and relatively easy commmute to aphilly, are going to be around the Ocean City, Margate, Ventnor areas which are all within 20 minutes of malls and a lot of stores. Areas such as Barnegat are much lower year round population and further off the beaten path.

Cape May though is close to Rio Grande, which has been built up a lot over the past decade and has many big stores. It is a bit further out though, it is the southern most town in New Jersey. There are still a good number of people at the southern end of the state however with a lot of retirees, and home health aides will still be in demand.
