The weather may be getting colder, but when it comes to shopping at the shore, there is no better time to be outside.

Now that the 2010 tourist season is officially over, year-round residents and visitors are not only blessed with less traffic and serene beaches, but they can more easily get into the restaurants that are packed nightly throughout the summer.
Day trips, hiking and nature trails aren't just meant for warm, sunny days. Many southern New Jersey tourist favorites take on a new character as the weather cools down. Area parks become a great place to see winter's migrating birds and butterflies, while popular attractions such as Historic Smithville or the Cape May County Zoo offer holiday train rides and a Santa's Family Workshop.
There are many cute little antique shops in Cape May County, especially along Route 9 - and there's no better time to browse for that unique treasure than when the temperature is a little nippy.
From sinful weeknight misadventures to fist-pumping Hallo-ween blow-outs, Atlantic City's bar and club scene is turned on for the fall season. At the top of the list, promoters say, are many of the so-called "industry night" promotions held at the city's numerous clubs, which offer locals who work in the resort's service industry a chance to get in on the action without breaking the bank.
For many families, life is so hectic during the week - ping-ponging from school to work to extra-curricular activities, not to mention keeping up with daily chores - parents are too exhausted to think up fun ways to spend time with kids on weekends.
With sparse crowds and mild temperatures, fall is a prime time to enjoy south Jersey's great outdoors. Why not take advantage of the last few months before winter and get some fresh air? Here is some advice from some people who spend a lot of time outdoors enjoying all the area has to offer this season.
It's good to live in southern New Jersey this time of year.
Leaf peepers, save your gas money - there's no need to drive to New England. There are plenty of spectacularly colorful leaves to see from now through mid-November right here in southern New Jersey.
In summer, Philadelphia residents head to the shore to enjoy the sights and surroundings. So in fall, why not return the favor and head west for a day of sightseeing.
