    benny is the northern/central nj term for a tourist/summer resident. always derogatory. it's an acronym standing for bayone, elizabeth, newark, & new york, which are the communities from which most summer visitors to lbi, seaside, belmar, etc. tend to hail.
    "shoobie" is the southern nj equivalent. this one stems from the days when tourists used to ride the train from philly & bring their lunches in shoeboxes. this is used brigantine south to cape may.


    or you could've done a search & saved me the trouble.

    Would it be fair to say that in MD, we have a habbit of calling them tourons?

    LOL!! fair enough...can't say i'd be much more functional in the same place.



    @poweruser- never heard "tourons" before, but i have heard SUP'ers referred to as "oarons" before. i kinda like that one.
