It is very hard for me to believe that the state that is the home to the Jersey Shore is among the least fun states in the nation. As a matter of fact, I think it's ridiculous.

There are very few places I can think of that are more fun than the Jersey Shore. We have everything from beautiful beached to amazing boardwalks to a world famous amusement park for goodness sake.

So how could it be possible that New Jersey, the home of the Jersey Shore could be ranked in the bottom half of the country for fun? That's right. WalletHub has listed the Garden State as the 30th most fun state.

That's not good, and it makes me wonder just how not fun the rest of the state would have to be to drag us down like that? and by the way, the study used "Entertainment & Recreation" and "Nightlife"as the two main categories.

For the record, the Garden State ranked 30th in both categories. I'm not sure how to even begin to wrap my head around that. Except to blame it on the rest of the state, and I don't really want to do that. But what choice do I have?

Not that you need the proof, but here's a list that keeps running through my mind. Asbury Park's restaurants, boardwalks and beaches, the whole Jenkinson's experience, all the great waterfront restaurants and amazing clubs dotted throughout the Jersey Shore.

The Jersey Shore is chock full of "Entertainment & Recreation" and "Nightlife", So it looks like some other county, or group of counties is going to get the blame for this.

It is not up to me to name a county, you can choose your own, but I think the Jersey Shore should be very upset by this information. Enough so that we may want to consider creating our own very, very fun state.
