JERSEY SHORE, Pa. - If you travel to this small riverfront town with the odd name, don't expect to find TV's Snooki and The Situation or see wide sandy beaches with a boardwalk and a big blue ocean. They're in another state, 250 miles to the east. But if you want to drive along the western branch of the Susquehanna River, view the changing fall foliage in the surrounding mountains, hike or bike a 65-mile trail along scenic Pine Creek, or fish and hunt in nearby state parks and forests, then this north-central Pennsylvania town of 4,000 would be worth the four-hour drive from Philadelphia.

It's a happy, happy day for the Garden State: Jersey Shore has decided to pack up and leave. (That'd be the TV show, not the locale, though I wouldn't mind if Wildwood took a hiatus.) On Thursday, MTV said the coming sixth season of its educational reality show will be its last, "bringing the party to a close after three years, two continents and one lil' bambino     (not to mention countless punch-ups, blowouts and catchphrases). " The final season will premiere Oct. 4, but the cabler will have a full slate of programming to say goodbye to Paul "Pauly D. " DelVecchio , Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino , Jennifer "JWoww" Farley , Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi , and the rest of the cast.

Editor's Note: Due to a technical error, a feature story on the MTV program "Jersey Shore" that was written by Yvonne Villarreal of the Los Angeles Times appeared briefly on philly.com as a column written by Chuck Darrow of the Philadelphia Daily News. LOS ANGELES - Like a tan growing pale, "Jersey Shore" is fading into the TV sunset. Thursday marks the beginning of its sixth season - its last. It began as just another low-budget MTV reality show, with lower expectations, that would chronicle the fist-pumping antics of its ultra-bronzed, ultra-average stars cooped up in a house in Seaside Heights, N.J. But when the series aired in December 2009, it quickly and curiously morphed into a surprisingly potent pop force that made "Snooki" a household name and turned an unknown cast into late-night punch lines.

And so the great cultural experiment draws to a close. In this week's fourth-season finale, the dim denizens of Jersey Shore ended their long exile in Florence. So what did we, the viewers, learn? (Pauly D and the gang clearly learned nothing.) For one thing, that Italy was an inspired destination. If any world leader can endorse the "gym, tan, laundry" lifestyle, it's Italy's prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi. Although I believe he refers to it as palestra, abbronzatura, lavanderia . I think we can also agree that classy is the same in any language.

Justin Bieber hurt his head during a Paris concert Thursday, even lost consciousness for a bit, but not before, trouper that he is, he wrapped up the set. J-Bieb, 18, walked into a glass wall, sustaining what docs later called a concussion. He sang the closer, then passed out backstage, says he, for 15 secs. He tweeted later that you "gotta laugh at yourself sometimes. " All this a day after girl riots in Oslo. TMZ relays unconfirmed reports of 49 young women hurt, unseriously, and 14 taken to hospitals during a free short Bieber set at the Oslo Opera House.

Busch's seafood restaurant died a dozen near-deaths before the end actually came. So when it was finally sold in 2014 and the Townsend's Inlet icon slipped beneath the waves of history - after 132 years and five generations of family ownership - no one was surprised. It was a 425-seat whale to maintain, decidedly frumpy in look, and seriously out of fashion on the plates. Even so, I still miss it. From the rich she-crab soup to the deviled clams, perfectly broiled lobster, and juicy blueberry cobbler, Busch's produced the timeless flavors of a Shore seafood house with consistency and character that's hard to match.

The Chester County all-stars advanced to the semifinals of the Carpenter Cup Classic yesterday by beating the Catholic League, 10-5, at Penn's Meiklejohn Stadium. Chester County will face the Jersey Shore all-stars, who advanced by winning yesterday's second game, 6-2, against Suburban One National/Bicentennial. Chester scored five runs in the seventh inning, which was highlighted by a two-run double by Spring-Ford's Rick Gehman. Jersey Shore used sound pitching to win its game.

Sure, the city's great when the temperature hits 80 degrees. The most eclectic vendors are out. The worst-dressed homeless are in full bloom. The river drives are greening. The fruit looks fresher in the Italian Market. Occasionally, someone will smile. But this also is the season that tempts the soul toward the cool breezes that blow in off the surf. The time to discover the seashells left from a cold winter. Imagine the promise of a Friday night at one of those deliciously decadent and financially ravenous casinos by the beach.

A special American flag - it had been presented to the family of a Philadelphia sailor who died during the Vietnam War - stolen July 4 from a Jersey Shore home has been located, a family associate said late Tuesday night. The flag was given to the family at the funeral of 19-year-old Seaman Patrick M. Corcoran, who died aboard the USS Frank E. Evans when it collided with an Australian aircraft carrier in 1969. It was displayed on special occasions at the North Wildwood home of Tom Corcoran, Patrick's brother, until it disappeared last week.

The unofficial start of summer - Memorial Day - is not a secret date. And any restaurateur with common sense and a measure of luck will do all they can to open a new restaurant before the gates bust open at the end of May. After that, the beach crowds come fast and hungry, and with none of the patience for early errors they'd afford at a new restaurant back home. Yet, there are the slowpokes who tease us well into early July with luscious social-media pics of dishes "in the works" and promises of "opening soon" while the sight of active work crews stoke a more skeptical view.

Erendira Wallenda is no stranger to heights. As an aerialist and the wife of fellow daredevil Nik Wallenda, defying gravity is in her job description. And, with generations of circus lineage on both sides of her family - her Mexican father is Vinicio Vazquez, of the Flying Vazquez trapeze artists, and her Australian mother is Golda (Ashton) Vazquez, of the historic Circus Joseph Ashton - it's also her birthright. "Being in the circus, a generational circus performer, you sort of learn how to do everything," said Wallenda, 35, who has performed professionally since she was 5 years old. The Vazquez family has been in the big top biz for seven generations, the Ashtons for eight.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - Watching over her son, nieces, and nephews as they dug holes in the sand and built drip castles Saturday, Kelly Smith, 37, reminisced about being that age herself. Smith, in a blue bikini with a very pregnant belly, remembers learning to ride a bike here in the alley between 28th and 29th Streets, right off Central Avenue. This past weekend, she taught a 5-year-old niece to master a two-wheeler in the same spot. Smith has been coming to Ocean City with her siblings since she was born.

"Who is pizza_jew?" And "where can I get these?!" are two of the hotter questions in recent months among locals surfing #pizzaporn on Instagram. As I lingered over that relatively new account's gallery of gorgeous Neapolitan pies, the hint "Jersey Shore" was dropped, and my own curiosity was piqued, too. It turns out that Mike Fitzick, 30, is the pizzaiolo in question, and Valentina's in Northfield is his hearth home base. Of course! I loved this Neapolitan BYOB during my visit last summer, recognizing it as one of the Shore's best trattorias.

Quick, name that tune. That's the game theater patrons will be playing at Rodgers' Romance , a Broadway musical revue created and directed by Philadelphia-area native David-Michael Kenney. On Wednesday, the production will make its New Jersey premiere at Cape May's East Lynne Theater Company, following stagings at the Sellersville Theater (2004) and Ambler's Act II Playhouse (2007). Comprising 24 songs by Richard Rodgers and his collaborators Oscar Hammerstein II and Lorenz Hart, Kenney's revue invites audience members to guess songs - and their corresponding shows - for a chance to win a gift certificate to a Shore business.
