As reported this week by newjersey.news12.com, Airbnb has released its top-searched destinations for spring and summer across the United States, and one of our local Jersey Shore towns has come in as No. 2!
“There are 30 million people within a 300-mile radius of this area, so we knew that we were going to find people who just wanted to get away,” says Cape May County Director of Tourism Diane Wieland. Cape May also has a strong year-round presence, with many businesses staying open through the winter. County officials say that September and October of 2020 did better business-wise than 2019.
With more people able to work from home and more children learning virtually, the Cape May area is seeing visitors staying for weeks and months. Besides Cape May, there have also been increases in rentals in towns like Sea Isle City, Avalon, Stone Harbor and the Wildwoods.
Our shore towns have an abundance of historic homes that now serve as bed & breakfast inns. Cape May, NJ is known for its Victorian architecture and its B&Bs are in high demand all 12 months of the year.
Is it time for a getaway? There’s no better place than the Jersey Shore anytime of the year.
