The Jersey Shore is Open for Business!
21 February 2013
The Jersey Shore is rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy, and is open for business in 2013. Beach boardwalks will be re-opened by early May, as temperatures rise for vacationers! The Jersey Shore runs 127 miles along the coast of New Jersey and offers sunny beaches ideal for swimming, surfcasting and relaxing on the sand. The area also provides additional attractions for the whole family, such as water and adventure parks, horse races, saltwater fishing, golfing, camping, fine dining and entertainment, shopping and a vibrant nightlife. Although peak travel season is during June and July, Jersey Shore is spectacular from May to August.
Despite Hurricane Sandy, the Boardwalks, amusement rides and piers at the Jersey Cape in Wildwood and Ocean City were spared and new and exciting rides and entertainment are scheduled for 2013. Retail and restaurant districts in the seashore hubs of Cape May, the Wildwoods, Stone Harbor and Avalon were open and resumed business right after the hurricane. All accommodations including campgrounds, motels, hotels, rentals and B & Bs from Ocean City to Cape May were unaffected and are open for business.
The U.S. Commercial Service in Montreal hosted the “New Jersey Shore – Open For Business” Tourism Promotion Media Event, featuring Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno and other representatives from the New Jersey tourism industry. Participants learned more about the Jersey Shore experience and the recovery of the Jersey Shore following Hurricane Sandy.
