Spark’s 2017 Visit Monmouth Travel Guide
Spark’s 2017 Visit Monmouth Guide will assist you in planning your trip and give you a taste of the destinations, attractions and events that
make the area special. We’re here to help you make sense of the strip along the Atlantic Ocean that we happily call home, and we hope
the guide will make you feel welcome. You’ll find sections on a variety of activities and interest areas. Check the On the Town section for
information organized by location. The Events pages include groupings of events by category as well as a yearlong event calendar. Get your
bearings with a map of all the towns, including county, state and federal parks as well as major roads and waterways. Map coordinates used
throughout the guide will help you locate destinations. If you have a question, reach out to us at 732-747-4449 or email@example.com.
Choosing the cover photo for the Visit Monmouth guide is a huge
challenge every year. We receive hundreds of stunning images from
talented photographers throughout the region.
Jess Naylor grew up in Sewell, New Jersey, and her family had a
shore house in Toms River. She has been taking pictures since she
got her first camera when she was 13, and evening beachscapes
became her favorite subject. She took this spectacular shot of the
annual Long Branch fireworks in 2016 with a Canon 5DMIII with
fisheye lens, mounted on a tripod and operated by remote control
to allow for the long exposure a detailed night shot requires. She is
now a professional photographer, shooting weddings, portraits and,
of course, beautiful landscapes.
