Thrillist recently named 21 of the best beach bars in America and not one, but two New Jersey bars made the list. The Garden State's very own Donovan's Reef in Sea Bright and The Rusty Nail in Cape May were among the bars chosen.
Donovan's Reef was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in 2013 and took a while to rebuild. But that hasn't stopped them from ending up as one of the top beach bars. Thrillist states "There's no better place to sip an Orange Crush on the Jersey Shore."
Despite it's name, The Rusty Nail "is charming as sh*t." The media site goes as far as to say "you'll think attending the most idyllic beachside BBQ."
The list also included bars in Hawaii, California, and Alaska.
