March, 2016


March is the time of the year when the worst of winter is behind us and we look forward to warmer weather and the onset of Spring. People with cabin fever are anxious to get outdoors for healthy activities and events to attend. For the less adventuresome, there are plenty of indoor events to attend.

This Month's Frequently Asked Question

Question: I'm taking my family for a side trip in NJ on the way home from a cousin's wedding, and I just wanted to know if it's worthwhile. I will be spending two days during the last Sunday & Monday in March, and I'm thinking of staying in Ocean City, or possibly Wildwood and AC as well. I don't expect things to be in full swing, but just how much would I be missing? Is there a particular boardwalk that is more lively this time of year than the others? Is it even worth it to come at this time of year?

Answer: Just to walk the "boards" and enjoy the fresh air? Any Shore town with a boardwalk will do.. For fun, rides, and family entertainment, the three towns you are considering have boardwalks in peak season from May through October. November through April is considered off season, though they tend to have some holiday special events, especially just prior to the beginning and near the end of the peak season. Typically, Easter weekend, which can fall anywhere from the last weekend in March to the 3rd weekend in April, is the beginning of boardwalk activity coming to life. For the last weekend in March and the following Monday, Atlantic City would have more to offer for families. The Atlantic City Aquarium, The Marine Mammal Stranding Center, Placade Amusements, Ripley's Believe It or Not, and the Tropicana Family Fun Station are some of the family attractions open year round.
