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.

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.

It was the perfect summer, Lt. John McShane of the Ocean City Beach Patrol said, until the very end. As it pounded Florida, Hurricane Frances did not spare the Jersey Shore yesterday. Thousands trying to make a beach day of it found themselves in the middle of whipping winds, blowing sand and rough seas. But Frances was only partly responsible for the Shore's rough weather. The conditions were mostly due to a high-pressure system moving in from Canada, according to the National Weather Service.

ATLANTIC CITY - This seaside resort's woes are well-known. The declining revenues, the striking workers, the recent announcement of yet another casino going dark - Trump Taj Mahal, planning to close in October, the fifth gaming hall to pack it in since 2014. Like a gambler on a losing streak, Atlantic City needs a turnaround in fortunes. A good time wouldn't hurt either. That could be why its tourism bureau, the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, and Live Nation Concerts called upon the eternally smiling, wistful musician to whom gloom and sadness seem not to stick, the down-to-earth (and sea and wind)

Summer is coming to a close, but there's still time to squeeze in a beach weekend. Some Jersey Shore vacationers are no doubt drawn by tradition: Who doesn't know someone whose family has been going to Wildwood or Sea Isle City for generations? Others may be drawn to the South Jersey coast out of a passion for a particular locale. Or mere convenience. But if our closest oceanfront real estate has no particular claims on your heart and mind (and wallet), you might consider Ocean City, Md. The other Ocean City has a lot to offer if you're looking for something a little different.

All along the Jersey Shore, summer cottages and those big Victorian rooming houses with wide porches and castle-like turrets have disappeared. They've been replaced by more practical but much less distinctive duplexes and multi-unit condominiums like the one at 17th and Central in North Wildwood. That spot on the intersection's northeast corner used to be occupied by a drug store, which, until life no longer afforded such luxuries, was my summer Sports Center. In 2016 it's difficult to explain how isolated the shore was during the 1950s and 1960s.

While Edward Briese and his uncle were clamming in Reed's Bay in Atlantic County on Saturday, they came across something else - a giant, odd-looking fish floating dead in the water. According to the Atlantic City Press, what the family spotted was a mola mola, or ocean sunfish. It was a little less than six feet long and missing some fins. The fish is commonly found in tropical and temperate waters. It can grow to be 14 feet wide and 10 feet long, and weigh 5,000 pounds, according to National Geographic.

I just drank a bottle of improbably impressive barbera wine from . . . the Jersey Shore?! Yes, I did. And just so we can move on to the important details, let's get the snickering out of the way ASAP, both for the provenance and name of this North Cape May winery - Turdo Vineyards - which landed as a gag mention not once, but twice, by comedian Jay Leno. "What can I say, it's our last name," says Luca Turdo, 34, who makes the wines with his father, Salvatore. "My family's from Sicily, so we go to brush it off. " That's easier to do when you run a labor-of-love winery that rises above both expectations and conventions.

WHEN IT GOT HERE - When sushi chef Armiyanto Harry Setiyaki arrived in the United States from Japan in 1984, there weren't many sushi restaurants along the Jersey Shore. So it was a circuitous route, with some time spent working in restaurants in New York and a stint as a line cook at Le Bec-Fin in Philadelphia, that eventually led him to become a sushi master in Atlantic City, first at the Showboat Casino and then at Harrah's. He left Harrah's last year, but it was at the casinos that Setiyaki began experimenting with the creation of his signature sushi rolls.

MARGATE, N.J. - Lobster, challah, hollah! Ten things I learned at the Margate Community Farmers Market: 1. There's lobster in those waters off Atlantic City. Not only are people freaking out over the Caribbean-blue waters at the Jersey Shore this summer (due to drought conditions resulting in less storm water runoff plus a whole lot of phytoplankton), but there are lobsters! In fact, fisherman Patrick Irwin, 42, says he catches the lobsters that many people are eating in New York City and Philadelphia restaurants 12 miles off Atlantic City's Delta Basin on Maryland Avenue.

From the piers of the Hudson River in New York to the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, REV Theatre Company has been putting a novel spin on Shakespearean plays (and other classic works) for more than a decade. Next week, the company goes to Cape May to perform A Midsummer Night's Dream on the outdoor stage of the Emlen Physick Estate. The creation of co-artistic directors Rosemary Hay and Rudy Caporaso, REV is named for the litany of powerful words that begin with the letters R-E-V.
