Shoobie is the term for a visitor to the Southern Jersey Shore. From Cape May to Long Beach Island visitors are called Shoobies and from Long Beach Island north, visitors are called Bennies.

The term is believed to come from the depression era to describe people who would take the train from Philadelphia area to the Jersey Shore for the day. They would bring their lunch and bathing suit in a shoe box. These people would spend very little while visiting and were mainly disliked by the locals.
Today, the term is mainly a tongue in cheek term referring to anyone who does not live at the South Jersey Shore.
This town is packed full of Shoobies! Shoobie go home.
