MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND HUGE FOR JERSEY SHORE TOWNS

The great weather of this past Memorial Day Weekend translated into big business for the Jersey Shore. The Press of Atlantic City surveyed local business owners and public officials and everyone had a good story to tell. They credited the success with high temperatures and sunny conditions that drove people to the beaches and kept them there throughout the weekend. Volume on the Atlantic City Expressway into Atlantic City showed an increase of 4 percent over last year, and other shore traffic increased by as much 6 percent. Resorts Casino Hotel said their room revenue was up by 50 percent over 2011.
