Right now there is no state tourism advertising going on. New Jersey typically spends about $9 million per year in promoting tourism. Cape May County Tourism Director Diane Wieland told 987 The Coast that she hopes the state will increase tourism funding in the short term to combat the image that the shore is closed. The national news media showed the boardwalk in Atlantic City that was destroyed and the roller coaster in the ocean in Seaside Heights. Cape May and most of Atlantic County made out alright during the storm and should still stand to have strong tourism years this summer.
