Summer is around the corner here in Ocean County. As of today, May 16th, 2022 there are 2 weeks left until Memorial Day!
While winters here can be beautiful with snow covering the beaches, summer is hands down the best time. It's livelier, the weather is fantastic, and there are a ton of things to do!
One of the best parts of the warmer months at the Jersey Shore is when seasonal businesses reopen their doors. While we get why they shut down for part of the year, we selfishly wish they'd stay open just for us - even though it would be near impossible for a few of them.
The old saying is true: absence makes the heart grow fonder. The one small bright side to these beloved Ocean County businesses operating seasonally is that once they do reopen, we enjoy them that much more than we would if they were open year-round.
These are the local businesses that you stalk on social media to find out their opening date. And then once you do, it goes straight in the calendar.
Thank you, seasonal business owners, for all of your hard work and dedication to making the best time of the year in Ocean County extra memorable!
