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.

AVALON, N.J. - When you walk into the Paper Peddler, there is an accumulated-over-time perfume of ink and paper - a vintage scent in an era when electronic devices have taken over delivering the written words of books, magazines, and newspapers. And so - shut out by potential customers who would sooner take a photo of the cover of a book with a plan to download it later and a dwindling customer base of print newspaper readers - the Paper Peddler will close its doors at the end of the month after 46 years.

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.

SEASIDE HEIGHTS - The only cameras left in the famed Shore Store here are small and silver - standard security measures in most retail stores. It wasn't long ago that crews producing a show for one of the most popular networks on television filled the T-shirt shop and introduced the world to Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, and the rest of their gel-happy friends. Two years after MTV's Jersey Shore cast bid good-bye after taking this town by liquor-infused storm - and one season removed from a summer defined by recovery from Hurricane Sandy - things are starting to look more like "normal," says store owner Danny Merk, 34. If normalcy means offering ticketed tours of his former home, that is. While the reality show ended in 2012, the eight-member cast and the attention it attracted have left a residual presence.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Before the Taney Dragons arrive at their assigned field for practice, Josh Lupacchino is already there, equipment in the back of his golf cart, a Mid-Atlantic team hat on his head. Lupacchino, 30, is one of about three dozen volunteers, most from the Williamsport area, who are assigned to help teams and stick with them throughout their stay in the tourney. The Little League calls them hosts, but their shirts - and the players - call them "uncles. " "Sunup to sundown, we're just here to help them out, whatever they need," Lupacchino said.

  Up and down the Jersey Shore, book lovers have chosen their must-read this summer: The Fault in Our Stars by young-adult genre author John Green. The book about two teenage cancer patients may be every bit as in demand at the Shore as Fifty Shades of Grey was three years ago, according to booksellers from Long Beach Island to Cape May. As have been any of the other teen fiction novels by Green, such as An Abundance of Katherines and Paper Town, as well as other books in the same genre, including If I Stay, just out in paperback, with a movie version to follow.

Not everyone has a million dollars to buy a fabulous house down the Shore. But don't despair - there's still a sandy place for the rest of us. Just ask Joe and Jane Santo, who last year purchased a $132,000 second home in the Villas, Cape May County. In a decade or so, they may move there full time and make the house their retirement retreat. It helps that it's situated on Spruce Avenue, on the bay side and three blocks from the beach. These days, forecasts of rising sea levels, in addition to the higher prices, taxes, and maintenance costs, are making oceanfront Shore properties less a draw than they might once have been.

BARNEGAT LIGHT - It was like Christmas morning, solving a Rubik's cube, and the movie Groundhog Day all rolled into one as soon as the Grand Larson III docked at Viking Village. A seven-man crew - the maximum allowed under strict government regulation - returned Wednesday from five days on the 80-foot steel-hulled trawler, which had gone to a managed scalloping area called the Delmarva, about 50 miles off the coast of New Jersey, and pulled 12,000 pounds of scallops from the deep.

OCEAN CITY - It'll probably never surpass Cape May and its environs as the Jersey Shore's birding capital. But a small patch of woods on a coastal islet, where a concrete bridge foundation for part of the Route 52 Causeway was rebuilt two years ago at the resort's main gateway, may just be giving veteran birders a new place to flock. The nesting and the squawking - despite the constant roar of traffic off the nearby causeway - can call to mind explorer Henry Hudson's crew. As soon as the Dutch explorers came ashore in 1609, they started giving everything an embryonic-inspired moniker - such as Great Egg Harbor, Great Egg Bay, Little Egg Inlet - because of the inordinate number of seabird nests and eggs laid out across the marshlands and woodlands as far as the eye could see. Pull in, park your car, and stand for a few minutes on the elevated walkway along stretches on the northern side of the little woods, and you'll likely be able to see at least a half-dozen bird species.

For Justin Soulen, the worst part of a long weekend at the Shore with friends was the drive home. Not because of the return traffic or the ending of a vacation, but because of what was traveling home with him in the trunk - bags and bags of hot trash. "It was gross - all the stuff from BBQs, parties," Soulen said. "We just said to ourselves, 'This is ridiculous.' " Because Soulen, 25, and friends would leave Ventnor on a Sunday, and trash day was at midweek, their only choice was to bring the trash home or risk being fined for leaving cans on the street too early.

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. - A two-day drive from home, they came on buses from across the country. They watched as the cornfields of rural America morphed into the lush, deciduous trees separating major East Coast cities. A series of "Welcome to" signs slipped by until their buses came to the end of the line - the Atlantic Ocean, something that many of the volunteers with Lutheran Social Ministries last week had never seen before. They weren't in Nebraska anymore. It was the Jersey Shore.
