planning a weekend birthday getaway in July for myself, best friend and our boyfriends. We are all in our early 30's and are looking for someplace close to the beach, with good shopping, bars, and nightclubs-- but that's NOT brimming with with 20-something "snookie" type college kids or too many families with small children. Really want to find a more "grown and sexy" type spot with trendy bars, and a fun, more mature crowd.
Any recommendations on hotels and/or areas of the Jersey Shore would be greatly appreciated!!
