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.

CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE - Luke Feltmann, 7, was having a good week. There the Bergen County boy was, staying at a rental house in Avalon with his extended family, playing with his cousins, splashing in the pool and surf. On top of all that, he cashed in big time with the Tooth Fairy - seven bucks. But then he fell into the dreaded Owie Zone: He awoke in the middle of the night with an earache, a long way from his home doctor. What to do? His mother, Laurie, got on Google. The next morning, Luke and his parents were at Cape Regional Urgent Care in Cape May Court House, being seen by a friendly doctor even though Luke still looked miserable.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - With straw-hatted scouts clustered like ants in JetBlue Park's shade, hundreds of sweating, sunbaked high school baseball players gathered in June for the Perfect Game National Showcase, and overexerted themselves on nearly every throw and swing. Then, like a welcome breeze amid all the sweat and struggle, Jason Groome coolly took his turn on the mound. If, in their zeal to impress, his pitching peers' efforts seemed grossly exaggerated, the New Jersey native's were as smooth and sweet as the nectarines in an adjacent orchard.

THERE'S NO NEED for mufflers in the blue skies above the surf, in the flying mules that strafe the Jersey Shore with half-price drink ads and marriage proposals all summer. The 150-horsepower, straight-pipe sound is unmistakable to all who have ever planted their butts in the sand on a sunny weekend from Cape May to Sandy Hook. Banner planes have flown above the breakers like sea gulls until sunset for as long as you can remember. At first, it's like a neighbor's lawnmower a few houses down, growing to a wood chipper, until finally it sounds like a World War I dogfight over your beach blanket.

You've arrived. You've gone to the beach. You've pondered the majesty of the ocean. And now, you just want to get out there. But you don't have a boat. How can you find yourself upon the high seas or the back bays? Where can you go to embark on a relaxing evening cruise or a big day of fishing? Or just have a little paddle around to look at the flora and fauna of the Jersey Shore? Surprisingly, there are a lot of options up and down the coast that don't require a huge investment in time or money.

The best attraction at the Jersey Shore is at the southern tip of the Wildwoods. According to TripAdvisor, at least. Search the Web for the best attractions at the Jersey Shore and you're likely to come across two lists at that user-generated travel advice site: top New Jersey boat tours and top Jersey Shore tours and activities. The Thunder Cat Dolphin Watch leads both. Of nearly 250 reviews for the dolphin watch, only one was below average (and that was due to a cancellation). Why is this tour so universally beloved?

Everybody appreciates a few days at the Jersey Shore. Especially the Clown Princes of Basketball. The Harlem Globetrotters finish up their annual four-day visit to Wildwood, N.J., this weekend, and star Big Easy Lofton says it's a treat for the team. "Wildwood has become a must-play tradition for us every summer," he says. "From riding the tram car when we arrive to tossing out Frisbees on the beach, our annual trip to Wildwood is much more than four games. " The Trotters, also featuring dribbling wizard Handles Franklin and former Temple standout TNT Maddox, even brought along their perennial foes, the Washington Generals.

Some of the best food in Ocean City is far from the tourist boardwalk - and considerably spicier, too. Cinco de Mayo, despite its humble setting on a quiet stretch of West Avenue, is one of our favorite go-to restaurants on the island. The colorfully muraled dining room (just down the street from hoagie standby Voltaco's) is a great example of the authentic Mexican flavors that have been flourishing up and down the Jersey Shore in recent years. Owner-chef Roberto Marroquin, who got his start at Cousin's Italian restaurant a quarter-century ago (and then went on to own a pizza shop in Galloway)

A manatee may soon join a bevy of sea creatures - sharks, Portuguese men-of-war, whales - that have visited the waters off New Jersey this summer. But beachgoers should not fear the ocean; the water is fine, the shark population is the same as in years past, and the Portuguese men-of-war are dwindling. Several manatees were believed to be between Maryland and Delaware on Friday, and one appeared to be heading north, said Robert Schoelkopf, director of the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine.

People here seem to love the Shore. But for a relative newcomer to Philadelphia, the words Jersey Shore evoke specific images: Hurricane Sandy-battered towns, absurd MTV characters, miles of standstill traffic, a failing casino town. So why do friends and colleagues continuously go down the Shore, to family summer homes, hotels, rented beach houses? What incredible activities do they find there? What is it they're seeking? It couldn't be just sand and surf, right? Jersey's beaches are probably like any other: sand getting everywhere, sun beating down, waves crashing around, and that universal smell.

W hat it is: Admittedly, one might not equate mozzarella cheese directly with the concept of a Jersey Shore food. But mozzarella - a white, semisoft high-water-content cheese - certainly has its place in various menu items often sought by those roaming the shoreline looking for a bite to eat. Upon pizzas, in pasta dishes, or with the heaven-on-a-plate simplicity of sliced Jersey tomatoes tossed with bit of basil and drizzled with a touch of balsamic...
