Best beach for early 30's couple in NJ! Hi! I've been to Hampton Beach all my life...

Best beach for early 30's couple in NJ! Hi! I've been to Hampton Beach all my life almost every year with family, now I'd like to differ...go somewhere where there's a few bars on the beach, a little less family oriented then Hampton Beach .. Can anyone make a recommendation? (Long Beach or Cape May, or??) PS. Not too far from Montreal/Canada, about 5 to 7 hours is acceptable.. Thx

Cape May has a some nightlife, it's a beautiful victorian town. Attracts a lot of seniors and surfers. They have a boardwalk but no stores on it, however there are many small shops around, very romantic at night time. As for bars ON the beach, Cape May isn't the place to go, however there are bars beachview. Sea Isle City is a HUGE party town for young people. Ocean City, NJ is a dry town and their claim to fame is "family friendly." Wildwood has a very active boardwalk, with rollercoasters, venders, etc. Wildwood's downfall is a long walk to the beach (in areas). Cape May, in my opinion is a much more desirable town to stay in, and the towns are about 10 minutes (driving) away if you're interested. I'm from southern NJ and normally go to Ocean City or Cape May, I don't know much about the northern NJ beaches. Hope this helps!
