Because we have many beaches. Also because not all of the shore is a beach. A great deal of the shore is wetlands and waterways. We in south Jersey, at the shore, basically consider Point Pleasant/Seaside the northern end of the shore, which runs all the way down to Cape May. That's close to 100 miles of shoreline.
If talking about the shore, you mean anywhere in this region. Locally, when you talk about the beach, you're referring to the local beach and/or barrier island. If you're in Somers Point, and going to the beach, you're going to Ocean City. If you're in Somers Point, and going down the shore, you're heading to the Cape May area
My enemies don't be glad because of my troubles!
I may have fallen, but I will get up;
I may be sitting in the dark, but the Lord is my light
