I am from Wall Township but I know what it's like to live far away from home. After getting my undergraduate degree from West Virginia University, I moved to a small town in western Kentucky to start my radio career. After that, I lived in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for three years. Long story short, there is nothing better than living at the Jersey Shore. Monmouth & Ocean County are awesome! The locals "get it", the restaurants are tremendous, and you can never run out of fun things to do.
The true financial impacts of the summer of 2020 at the Jersey Shore won't truly be known until sometime next year but this year saw record beach revenue in Monmouth County despite the restrictions and despite the pandemic.
It was definitely a very weird Memorial Day weekend up and down the Jersey Shore.
The weather wasn't that great down the shore this weekend, but even if it's not ideal for laying out on the beach, you always had the bars, restaurants, rides, and the arcade to escape too...
The good news for this weekend is that what we usually see at this time every year will be seen once more but with one big difference....social distancing will be encouraged and enforced so be sure to keep six-feet of distance.
With so much information being released every single day, it's hard to keep track of which beach, park, and boardwalk is open, and which ones remain closed.
At this time, it seems like most beaches and boardwalks have reopened in New Jersey...
