Monmouth County is in eastern-central New Jersey and is home to some of the famed Jersey Shore. I personally live in Ocean Township, so a lot of my photos will be of Ocean (the yellow area) and its neighboring towns.

The way I usually describe Monmouth County’s location to people is, “You know how the shore of NJ has a little hook in the center? I live right by that hook.”

Within the context of the entire country, it’s along the shore of the northeast United States. We (usually) have pretty cold winters and pretty hot summers, with a short spring and fall in between. Normal temperate climate. You probably knew that, but hey, I don’t know where states/provinces in any other countries are in relation to each other. (Click to enlarge map.)
