With the exception of Cape May County, the Jersey Shore counties north of Cape May have thus far in the summer of 2013 experienced a fall off in tourism business from previous years.

Several reasons account for this:

  • Fewer local summer residents. Monmouth and Ocean Counties were the hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy. Destruction of primary and vacation homes has been severe and have not yet completed rebuilding to pre-Hurricane Sandy levels.

  • Smaller inventory of rental homes. Similar to non-rental homes, many of the vacation rental homes remain unoccupied and have not yet completed rebuilding.

  • To a lesser extent, weather has not been cooperative. June experienced record rainfall and a good portion of July experienced a sweltering heat wave.

Cape May County on the southern tip of New Jersey experienced a different set of conditions.

  • Very few properties incurred damage from Hurricane Sandy. Private summer homes and vacation properties remain intact.

  • Canadian tourism remains strong with a modest increase this year. Traditionally, Cape May County has been a popular summer vacation destination for Canadians.

With a month remaining in the 2013 summer tourism season, Jersey Shore businesses are hoping for good weather and an improvement in the inventory of rebuilt private and vacation home rentals.
