Contributing a record $44.1 billion to the Garden State’s economy in 2016, representing a 2.9% increase from 2015, tourism increased for the 7th year in a row in New Jersey. The astounding $44.1 billion was generated from around 100 million visitors, who opted for New Jersey as their travel destination, accounting for 3.3% more travelers visiting the state as compared to 2015.
The small borough of Point Pleasant Beach, located scenically along the shore in the state of New Jersey, boasts a population of 4,552 people and consists of only a single neighborhood. It is ranked #334 in New Jersey, in terms of the size of its community. So, why would this small community attract real estate investment? “Of important note, Point Pleasant Beach is also a borough of artists. Point Pleasant Beach has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Point Pleasant Beach’s character,” says Neighborhood Scout.
