What are they?: Traditionally more of a coastal New England and Canadian Maritime provinces kind of thing than a Jersey Shore sandwich, lobster rolls have been around since the late 1920s, when a seafood purveyor in Milford, Conn., began serving them to the lunch crowd. Variations have been created over the years - mostly involving the addition of mayonnaise and diced celery and served cold. But the classic version is simply lobster meat soaked in melted butter, with a sprinkle of lemon juice, maybe some lettuce, sea salt, and black pepper mixed in, and served on a steamed or toasted hot dog bun slit across the top and smeared with a bit of mayo.

What is it?: A stroll down a Jersey Shore boardwalk just doesn't seem complete without a taste of this deliciously sweet, melt-on-your-tongue confection of confections that some say is the gold standard by which all other candy should be measured. Usually made on premises in most of the candy shops along the Shore, it is offered in large slabs that are hand-cut into smaller pieces and then boxed to order and sold by the pound. Fudge comes in a variety of flavors, with old standbys chocolate and vanilla the most popular, but trendier flavor profiles such as pistachio and chocolate and vanilla sea salt are gaining ground.

BELMAR, N.J. - On Friday, Gov. Christie greeted beachgoers on a familiar Jersey Shore boardwalk. By next week, he will be in Florida, South Carolina, and New Hampshire; the week after that, it's back to New Hampshire, Iowa, and Utah. The Republican governor, eyeing a 2016 presidential campaign, has traveled out of state on at least 67 of the first 151 days of the year, according to a review of public schedules released by his office and other information. That figure encompasses a variety of travel, from his three-day trade mission to the United Kingdom to visits to early presidential primary states to numerous trips to nearby New York, including for fund-raisers, national television interviews, and sports games.

If railroad conductor Andrew Boardman - who is credited with coming up with the concept of the first boardwalk, in 1870 - had a different surname, would these wooden walkways that have become so popular at the Jersey Shore be called something different? There's no concrete answer. But along with hotelier Jacob Keim, Boardman constructed the original walk along the Atlantic City oceanfront to help keep the sand off the feet of train passengers boarding the rails back to the city and of hotel guests strolling off the beach and into the carpeted lobbies of the grand hostelries.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - So there they were Saturday afternoon - standing in a breeze perfumed by that pizza-crusty-cinnamon-candy-coconut-sunscreen scent that is classic eau de boardwalk - plotting their next move in what appeared to be a complicated operation of acquisition and distribution. Never mind that it was a great beach day and that just steps away the Atlantic Ocean appeared to be the perfect shade of cerulean blue against a baby blue cloudless sky on this first day of Memorial Day weekend, the official unofficial start of the summer Shore season.
