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.

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.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - The boardwalk looked like a ghost town Tuesday, but except for some high surf, minor street flooding, scattered power outages, and wind gusts that topped out at 55 m.p.h., it appeared like any other chilly, gray December day in this Jersey Shore resort. But barricades had been placed along some low-lying streets, emergency management personnel kept a close watch on the beachfront, and local schools here and in other Shore towns were closed for the day because of "heavy rains, high winds, and tidal flooding.

Channel 40, the television station at the Jersey Shore that is home to local heroes in weatherman Dan Skeldon and sportscaster Pete Thompson, is about to lose its identity. Dropped by Comcast's NBCUniversal as an affiliate, the station will no longer be NBC40 or broadcast NBC programming after Dec. 31.

A potent nor'easter that threatens the Jersey Shore with significant flooding, tropical-storm-force gusts, and beach-eroding waves could affect the entire region into Thursday with up to three inches of rain and perhaps even some snow, meteorologists warned Monday. The National Weather Service posted a coastal-flood warning from 7 a.m. through 1 p.m. Tuesday, and with the ground still wet from a weekend soaking, the entire region was under a flood watch into early Wednesday. "It's making me a little nervous," said Gary Szatkowski, meteorologist in charge of the Mount Holly weather service office.

BRICK TOWNSHIP, N.J. - You won't be able to see it when it's finished, because the seawall that extends three and a half miles through two beach towns will be covered in sand and is being rooted 30 feet below sea level. It will act as an invisible barrier against future storms such as Hurricane Sandy along a stretch of the Jersey Shore that was arguably the most devastated by the October 29, 2012, storm that did $38 billion worth of damage in the state. The new steel seawall lines a beach-ward section of Route 35 and runs through Mantoloking and the Normandy Beach section of Brick Township.

ABSECON, N.J. - No, the Jersey Shore doesn't roll up the streets and go dark after Labor Day. For many locales up and down the coast, the holiday season is among the most dazzling times of year. "For us, Thanksgiving weekend is really busier here than any summer weekend - even the Fourth of July," said Scott Wahl, Avalon borough administrator. "This is the time of the year that the second homeowners really come down and enjoy their own properties with family and friends. " Wahl's town planned two days of kickoff events this weekend, including a winter carnival and the lighting of more than a mile of trees along Dune Drive.

BRICK TOWNSHIP, N.J. - The remains of a shipwreck buried beneath 20 feet of sand recently unearthed by crews rebuilding a seawall in the Normandy Beach section of this Ocean County municipality may be a historically significant treasure. State archeologists will seek to determine whether a pile of timbers and a wooden, barrel-shaped windlass uncovered as workers tried to pound a steel beam into the sand - breaking the pile-driving equipment twice - are pieces of the 19th-century ship Ayreshire.

He defended his Ebola quarantine policy on national television, lambasted President Obama's leadership as limited to "seven-minute lectures from the South Lawn," and supplied morning-show fodder by ordering a Hurricane Sandy protester to "sit down and shut up.

On Point Drive at the tip of Longport, where houses were cracked open two years ago by Hurricane Sandy's waves and wind, their multimillion-dollar vulnerability bared to the sea, all is as it was. The Hankins finished a total rebuild. The Tuchmans debated selling, but decided to do the repairs and keep their summer home after all. Marvin Ashner, who never left, not even during the storm, still answers his door beneath whimsical Blues Brothers statues. "Everybody's back," said Steven Hankin, an Atlantic City lawyer who lives on Point Drive, which overlooks the inlet's washing machine currents.
