Thanks for those intriguing suggestions, also the links and other info.
I've never been to "the Jersey shore" -- but have read about Cape May (in
the Real Estate section-- those great old houses!). I don't plan to go
near water (bad for the camera), so that's not an issue -- and boardwalks
should be excellent.

Back when bicycles still had those big front wheels my family used to go
to Atlantic City (tho we called it Atlantic City, not "Jersey Shore"). Now
that Donald Trump has ruined the place, Wildwood and Point Pleasant, et
al, sound all the better...
