This year, Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 27th. Less than a year after Superstorm Sandy, Jersey Shore towns have worked effortlessly to rebuild and reconstruct the beaches and boardwalks along the coast. In fact, most have already reopened and the rest are expected to be open and ready for business by Memorial Day Weekend.

Typically the most popular beach day at the Jersey Shore, Memorial Day marks the unofficial date to kick off the summer with good food, great gatherings and fun in the sun. We're confident that in 2013, lots of people will be flocking to the Jersey Shore, especially to one of New Jersey’s hottest beaches – Seaside Heights.
