Jersey Shore Destinations Want Everyone to Know They’re Open for Business

You’ve probably seen the video and photos of the destruction caused by Sandy at the Jersey Shore. The thing is, when you’re watching the news they are trying to show you the most shocking, disturbing and sensational images they can find. This has given people a completely inaccurate impression of the Jersey Shore as a whole. Sure, there was some serious damage in Seaside and areas around exits 80-100 on the Parkway like Asbury Park and Avon. But the bulk of the shore was barely affected if at all. Places like Cape May, Wildwood, Atlantic City and many more are fine and were not affected in any practical way at all. Yet they still receive phone calls from people thinking they are devastated. The Heart to Heart Conversation with New Jersey Shore Tourism 2013 event is out to change all that:
