With an unemployment rate that is about a third higher than the national average and a foreclosure rate more than three times the national rate, Cape May and Atlantic counties, still managed to generate the most tourism dollars in 2016, accounting for more than 31% of New Jersey’s $41.9 billion in direct tourism sales.
Jersey Shore’s clean beaches, which attract millions of tourists every year, are major contributors to the state’s tourism sales. Tourists not only love to take brisk strolls along the beach, they also visit to take part in a wide range of water sports. Also, when they are in the region, many prefer to opt for vacation rentals on the shore, rather than hotels, for a longer and more memorable stay, observes the team at Donnelly Real Estate Group.
Here is a list of five water sports that you should try during your stay at the Jersey Shore.
Top 4 Water Sports Activities
Surfing: The Jersey Shore has been a popular surfing destination for water sports lovers for more than a century now. The reason this area is so desirable is that the climate is just right, staying sunny for most part, with good waves in the ocean, throughout the year. However, it is during the summer months when you can head to Wildwood, Ocean City, Seaside Heights and the metropolis of Atlantic City.
