NJ Beach Communities Are Ready for A Comeback - My9 New Jersey

NJ Beach Communities Are Ready for A Comeback

Posted: Updated:
Long Branch, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Summer is almost upon us, which means that beach season will soon be here! New Jersey Monthly Magazine has dedicated its entire June issue to fun in the sun at the Jersey Shore.

One location that has really made a comeback after Superstorm Sandy is the Pier Village, in Long Branch, New Jersey. There are a lot of new developments, great restaurants, nice bars, and many things to do for the whole family.

Ken Schlager is the editor of New Jersey Monthly Magazine and he says that he enjoys many of the Garden State’s beach towns, especially Long Branch.

“You like food, you like shopping, and you like the shore, this is really a great place to be,” he boasted of the newly developed Pier Village in Long Branch, New Jersey.

A little further south, Mayor Matt Doherty of Belmar is thrilled to have the boardwalk fully reconstructed after Hurricane Sandy. He expects a really big crowd throughout the entire summer.

“If it’s sunny and warm, we will have about 60,000 people here on the beach in Belmar,” Doherty explained.

As summer is quickly approaching, make sure to check out New Jersey’s thriving beach communities. Mayor Doherty may have put it best. “When it is warm and sunny, there is no better place to be than the Jersey Shore,” he bragged.
