There’s no better time for basking in the glow of a summer sunrise while relishing the sounds of nature upon an early awakening. And when it comes to spectacular sunrises, look no further than the author of our cover photo, Kristian Gonyea. Kristian has many more beautiful prints available to order at With that being said, we have an exciting Summer issue for you to enjoy that is packed with a lot of great features. One of the hottest trends in cocktails is the Espresso Martini. In our Leisure column, we explore some of your favorite spots to get this delicious drink along with a ready-to-use option from a local distiller, Little Water Distillery in Atlantic City.

Travel is always at the top of our list, and this issue is no different. But this time, we’re looking at options provided by travel tour companies. These businesses offer turnkey options with great service, whether you travel solo or in a group. Why risk your expensive trip when you can have Carefree Travel?

In our Art feature, we speak to our friend Bill Horin at ArtC about the Cut International Film Festival at the Levoy Theater coming in September. Expanding on Millville’s great history, the theater will be a great spot for filmmakers, artists, and the public to view these files while networking among their peers. And speaking of art, let’s not forget the art of cooking. I started hearing about Saltwater’s pizza a lot last year and finally had the chance to catch up with owners David and Lori Salvo to get the secret behind their much-talked-about creations at this authentic Italian eatery in Margate.

I happen to be a big fan of BMW, having owned one. So, when the subject of an electric BMW SUV came up, I couldn’t resist knowing the history of the performance for this brand. In our On Wheels column, we check out the BMW iX and all its modern features.

And as always, we have lots of photos of local celebrities in our Social Scene. Speaking of social, please join us for the upcoming Abbacadabra show hosted by the Schultz-Hill Foundation featuring a musical tribute to the music of Abba. Proceeds support arts programs for local children and seniors. This and so much more from our talented writers and dedicated marketing partners in the pages of New Jersey Lifestyle magazine.
