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. - 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.

Must one travel more than 1,000 miles for a trip to be considered a Personal Journey? Does it have to include a passport and an overseas flight to a foreign land where locals speak some exotic language? Is it a necessary requirement to strap on a backpack and a $400 Patagonia jacket and hike the foothills of a mountainous region that touches the clouds? Sometimes a simple journey within one's own home state can have a lasting impact. During the winter school break, my wife, two younger children, and I were looking to get out of the stuffiness of our house.

The Jersey Shore's NBC40 broadcasts out of a converted Frito-Lay factory off Route 9 in Linwood, home to cerebral weatherman Dan Skeldon, sports nice guy Pete Thompson, and steady news anchor Michelle Dawn Mooney. For thousands of loyal viewers in Atlantic, Cape May, and Cumberland Counties, NBC40's 6 a.m. news is the first show they watch in the morning, and the station's hyperlocal advertisers seem as familiar as the nearest Wawa. There's Pastor David McGettigan from St. Andrews by the Sea, Doug and Linda from Beachcomber Collectibles, and Bill Kassner of the Chapman Auto Group in Egg Harbor Township.

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. And the familiar local newscast - operated by the Linwood-based Access.1 company under contract with California-based owners LocusPoint Networks - will no longer be seen on WMGM-TV after Dec. 31, according to a statement posted on the NBC40 website Tuesday.

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.
