Summer will be here before you know, which means sooner rather than later you'll be grabbing that beach chair and hitting the sand.

I absolutely love to start the day looking at the ocean with a fresh cup Dunkin' Donuts coffee! Family Vacation Critic just released a list of the 10 best beaches for families for the summer of 2017, and one Jersey beach did make the list!

Some of the criteria used in determining the best beaches included, proximity of motels and rentals, as well as restaurants they highly rated.

The one beach from the Jersey Shore to make the list was Long Beach Island! LBI has 18 miles of beach to enjoy, motels and vacation rentals galore and some of the best restaurants in all of the Garden State. My boys loved vacationing at LBI. One of the hardest things to do while we we're on vacation was to get them to leave Fantasy Island Amusement Park.

Other beaches to make the list included, Rehoboth Beach in Delaware and Jones Beach State Park in New York.

My family also loved vacationing in Wildwood, which is another awesome beach for families. I can still here, "Watch the tram car, please", in my head every time think about one of those family vacations in Wildwood!
