Even though I am a huge fan of Summer, and I would prefer to wear shorts and be on my boat all year long, I am a fan of October.

If there is one month where I wouldn't mind wearing a hoodie at night, October is that month.

I could do without all the pumpkin spice "crap", but I love all the pumpkin-related stuff such as pumpkin picking and carving. October is great for apple picking and bonfires too...I even love Halloween as well, so I am a fan of the month of October

There are many attractions around Ocean and Monmouth County where you and the entire family can enjoy the month of October and everything Halloween.
