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.

SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. - As vacationers began leaving the Shore over the weekend, fleeing a storm that never materialized, Mike Monichetti realized that he had 42,000 clams that weren't going to sell themselves. Monichetti, owner of Mike's Seafood & Dock, put the word out: buy 50, get 50 free. The clams started going pretty fast after that, he said, with many customers buying them by the hundreds with plans to have "storm parties. " "Did I lose money? Yeah," Monichetti said Monday. "Did I feel good doing it?

Tropical Storm Hermine meandered slowly in the Atlantic more than 300 miles from land on Sunday. It still threatened some storm-surge flooding at the Jersey Shore, but merchants were fuming that forecasts had scared away vacationers, ruining a usually lucrative Labor Day weekend. "They scared everyone away," said Cheryl Venezia of Annette's restaurant in Ventnor. "Even this morning, it's beautiful out, and they're still telling people to go home. " Gov. Christie on Saturday declared a holiday-busting state of emergency for Ocean, Atlantic, and Cape May Counties.

At the historic Merion Inn in Cape May, Bob Myers and his wife were settling in for an evening of jazz, a mainstay on Tuesday nights. Locals, the Myerses have been coming to the inn for decades - "since two years before dirt," Bob says - long after the summer visitors take their beach chairs and go home, and well before they arrive for the next season. Barry Miles, a jazz pianist who worked as Roberta Flack's musical director for 15 years, is on the grand piano; Andy Lalasis is on bass; and Bob Shomo on drums.

It's said you have to take the bad with the good. The idiom applies perfectly to the Jersey Shore, where good weather can drive a seasonal economy, and bad weather can bust it. Weeks of unrelenting hot weather during prime vacation time in July and August may ultimately mean record-setting tourism spending for 2016, maybe up by as much 2 percent over last summer. But Hermine's stormy kicker over Labor Day weekend threatened to seriously dampen the bottom line for businesses that depend on every sunny day to keep them out of the red. "We were kind of counting on this weekend to push us into where we want our bottom line to be," said Toby Ciankowski, whose family operates an ice cream stand on the Wildwood boardwalk.

This has been a tough week for some Jersey Shore lifeguards, and the threat of rip currents and a rough surf could keep them busy through the Labor Day weekend. A heavy beach turnout is expected on this unofficial last weekend of summer, before most students return to school. But a path of tropical systems in the Atlantic Ocean could put a damper on some beach plans and pose a risk to bathers, even strong swimmers. "This is a very dangerous situation for anyone to go into the water," Dan Kottlowski, a senior meteorologist at AccuWeather, said Thursday.

WHAT IT IS - Move over apple: Scrapple is now the best-selling pie flavor at Wards Pastry Shop in Ocean City. While your dream of a perfect pie flavor may not be that whitish congealed block of something-or-other made famous by the Pennsylvania Dutch, apparently this bakery - around for 88 years and considered a Jersey Shore staple - knows a thing or two about taking such an oddity and making it, well, palatable. "I think some people hear about scrapple pie and come in and buy it for the goof . . . but they come back because they try it and it's really good," said Wards' owner and chief baker Walter Hohman, 51, who started working in the bakery when he was 12. Scrapple is traditionally a combination of pork offal - scraps and trimmings like the heart, head, liver, and bones that wouldn't be used for anything else - that is boiled down into a broth and then combined with cornmeal, flour, and spices to form a mush.

In the 1950s, William F. Ciampitti Sr. sensed that the parents of the early Baby Boom generation needed a breath of Jersey Shore air for their families. "A lot were willing to escape the city and go for the summer, and Wildwood would be the solution" to their quest to buy Shore homes, Mr. Ciampitti's son, William Jr., said. So, in 1957, Mr. Ciampitti began buying land in Wildwood Crest and neighboring Diamond Beach. His land purchases, his son said, were "the initiative for the developments," especially on Diamond Beach.

An invasion has landed on the beaches of Wildwood. Through Sunday, the resort will host Monsters on the Beach, a monster-truck racing competition between Lincoln and Spencer Avenues. For those new to the world of monster trucks, the souped-up vehicles measure up to their beastly moniker. Consisting of a modified pickup truck or SUV body with supersize tires and an upgraded suspension to match, the average truck has a height and width of 12 feet and weighs from 10,000 to 12,000 pounds.
