New data shows that shore communities should do well this summer. A Monmouth University poll says more state residents plan to visit the shore this summer. More than 2-in-3 state residents plan on visiting the Jersey Shore this summer, including 27% who will spend a week or more and 42% who plan on shorter visits. Compared to last year, middle income residents are more likely to plan a week or longer vacation down the shore and lower income residents are more likely to make a shore visit at all. Upper income residents will continue to visit the shore in numbers similar to past summer seasons.
