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.

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.

While thoughts of summer dining begin to warm our imaginations, the sound of bandsaws and hammers resonates from the Jersey Shore to the Delaware beaches as restaurateurs hustle to complete new projects in time for the Memorial Day crowds. "Just turned on the gas last week and got hot water yesterday," said Trevor Lord, a former Quahog's waiter who spent a year on the surfboard-inspired woodwork and renovations for the Watering Hull (261 96th St.) in Stone Harbor, a breezy Caribbean seafood restaurant-bar in a second-floor space with roll-up garage door walls atop Harbor Square.

There is a Wawa on the Coastal Highway in Ocean City, Md., one of a few things visitors from our region would find familiar about this beach town roughly a 150-mile ride southeast of Philadelphia. Another is the geography of the resort, which offers a nice, reasonably nearby change of pace from the Jersey Shore. Ocean City sits on a skinny barrier island, much like Jersey spots such as Long Beach Island, Wildwood, and Atlantic City. The other Ocean City is reached after traversing miles of flat land and crossing a bay on a causeway.

In the last two years, the number of breweries in New Jersey has more than tripled. Good luck finding their beer down the Shore. That's because quantity, not quality, is still the key to beach-town beer consumption. The raucous, rocking bars of Wildwood, Sea Isle City, and elsewhere along Ocean Drive are all about Stoli Razberi drinks and buckets of fizzy yellow liquid. Yes, you'll spot an occasional local beer mixed in among the taps. But a true craft-beer bar down the Shore is as rare as a seagull without an attitude.

ATLANTIC CITY - Amid the tumult of layoffs, a busy Mayor Don Guardian declared a summer of entertainment, then vowed to try to save Stockton University's "island campus" project. Guardian laid out an impressive to-do list for the season during a conference call with reporters Tuesday. After declaring his beleaguered but resilient Boardwalk town the "entertainment capital of the Jersey Shore," Guardian said he was convening a meeting Friday to try to coax a settlement in the Stockton standoff.

THE LETTER that is the only remaining post on the Surflight Theatre's website is pretty grim: "On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I regret to advise you that due to continuing difficult financial circumstances, Surflight Theatre is forced to cease operations after 65 seasons and file for bankruptcy," reads the first sentence of the post, which is signed by Dave Kreines, chairman of the board of trustees of the venerable Beach Haven, N.J.-based theater...

It's spring: Time to head to the Jersey Shore, smell the Atlantic, and daydream about buying a beach place. Albert Slap and Bob Hubbell, long-ago Penn grads, have started a service in Florida they hope buyers and lenders will consult before signing off on 30 years of payments in these times of rising waters. In some Shore neighborhoods, it could be a real estate buzz-killer. Slap, a onetime public-interest lawyer whose Sierra Club lawsuit curbed Philadelphia's sewage dumping way back in 1979, and Hubbell, past spokesman for the accounting firm KPMG, own Coastal Risk Consulting L.L.C.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - A beach-replenishment project on a 2.6-mile stretch along the south end of this popular vacation resort, originally scheduled to take all summer to complete, will likely be finished by midseason, according to officials. And the idea that the huge, noisy machines and pipes gushing sandy slurry will be gone from the shoreline by early July is making a lot of locals and visitors in this Cape May County beach town very happy. The process involves closing off the beach in two-block-long sections as the dredge and other equipment pumps the 1.6 million cubic yards of sand that will be pulled from an underwater borrow site about a mile offshore.

Inevitably, beach weather will arrive this year, so it's time to take a trip to the Jersey Shore to check out the residential real estate market there. When we deal with the Shore, of course, we are looking at sales of both primary and second homes. And we need to look at the 2014 market, which Kevin Gillen, chief economist at Meyers Research and senior research fellow at the Lindy Institute for Urban Innovation at Drexel University, describes as behaving "with schizophrenic uncertainty.

BRIGANTINE, N.J. - As winter took a last gasp on the cusp of spring with one more round of snow Friday, Sal and Jen Buscaglia would not be deterred from booking their summer getaway to the Jersey Shore. Like thousands of others before them - as many as a staggering 40 percent more renters in one beach town than this time last year who have already signed on the dotted line - the Buscaglias of Media were ready with checkbook in hand to make a decision on where to spend the first two weeks of August.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - When this resort 63 years ago completed the Jersey Shore's first engineered beach-replenishment project, pumping 2.54 million cubic yards of sand onto a two-mile stretch of beachfront at a cost of around $4 million, officials thought it would solve the town's erosion problems for good. But by 1958, it appeared Ocean City - and ultimately its neighbors up and down the coast - would need more beach replenishment. And would have to keep doing it in the ensuing decades.
