15 picks for your hot Jersey shore summer action
Although July 4 falls on a Wednesday this year, it doesn’t mean that the holiday fun will be in short supply in the southern New Jersey and Atlantic City region.
July 4th is on a Wednesday this year, which is usually a good thing for resort businesses. It means that some Jersey shore visitors will celebrate the holiday the weekend before the holiday and some will celebrate the weekend after the holiday, which equates to more business for everyone … at least that is the theory.
