Jersey Shore Throwback: We're Revisiting The Season 2 Abode

With the gang about to hit Miami again for a 'family vacation,' we're feeling nostalgic

Miami is a special location for the Jersey Shore family: Season 2 of the hit series was filmed in the Magic City in 2010 (their initial moments in the pad can be seen below), and now the gang is enjoying a vacation in the Sunshine State.

But before viewers get a peek at Deena, Pauly D, JWOWW, Vinny, Ronnie, Snooki and The Situation back in action on April 5, we're remembering the OG residence. The basics about the cultural landmark: The dwelling was a suite at the Hotel Metropole with a beachy aesthetic (because of the South Beach location) and plenty of water options (pool, jacuzzi, etc). Other decoration highlights: A fitting map of the Sunshine State, palm tree wallpaper (in the Smush Room) and, sadly, no duck phone.
