What people here in New Jersey call going to the beach. What some people don't get, however, is that this is more the term used to discribe the trip taken while going "down the shore" from your home in an inland county or town. The drive to whichever beach town you are going to be spending time in is going down the shore, but once you're there you simply go to the beach.
Now that we're down the shore, let's head to the beach.
A grassy location at the University of Pittsburgh containing many scantily clothed women/men. Usually it used in referance to Schendly Plaza but may also refer to the lawn of the Soilders and Sailors Memorial.
"Lets go to the beach and check out the scenary."
"The beach has a great view of the ocean"
|4.||down the shore|
This term is used by people in the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware "tri-state area" to describe the general vicinity of the coastal barrier islands in relation to inland locations. People not familiar with the barrier islands of the mid-Atlantic coast are often confused by this term. "Why not just call it 'the beach'?" they say. This question reflects ignorance of the mid-Atlantic geography where the barrier islands form pleasant beach-fronts and bay-fronts both. Because of the narrow shape of these islands, one can easily access the beach and the bay, where there are different views and recreation activities available. So, when someone from, for example, Philly travels to the coast, they are not necessarily going to "the beach". They are going "down the shore". When they arrive to the barrier island and they roll down the windows and smell that salty breeze, they are "down the shore".more...

|7.||Down the Shore|
Down the shore is the term used by people from New Jersey - specifically Northern Jersey (away from the shore area) - to describe going to the beach areas. Since New Jersey's beaches are all in the central and southern parts of the state rather than the Northern part of the state, which is blocked by New York City so there are no beaches, going "down the shore" means you're heading south. That's where the "down" part comes from. People who live near the beach wouldn't say "down the shore" because they're already living in that area. Once at the shore, if you're going to the beach you would just say "I'm going to the beach". But the term "down the shore" actually just refers to heading south towards the shore points on the New Jersey coast, or to the general shore area, because the Jersey Shore is more than beaches. It is also made up of boardwalks (with rides, food, water parks), bays, lagoons, many restaurants, etc. So if you are just going to hang out in those areas, you would probably just say "down the shore".more...
