OCEAN CITY, N.J. — Summertime has officially arrived, South Jersey! Last weekend’s summer solstice means that, for the next few months, community members and out-of-state travelers will converge on New Jersey’s shore points like Ocean City.
Last year, scenes at the beach were much different, as COVID-19 led to the closure of many different businesses and left people without an outlet to enjoy the nice weather down the shore. Thanks to the state’s intensive vaccination effort and slowed spread of the virus, however, this year will look much closer to normal at places like Ocean City.
“The world’s your oyster, and that’s why we’re in Ocean City,” Larsen Hunsberger, a Pennsylvania native, said.
