Ocean City Voted Best Beach in New Jersey

Ocean City was ranked as New Jersey's Best Beach overall as announced today at the seventh annual State of the Shore Media Event held in Sandy Hook.


Ocean City topped this year's list as best beach as determined by voters and coastal scientists.  Voting began in February and included several categories.  Ocean City also received top honors for Best Beach for Day Trips and Ecotourism. 


Mayor Sal Perillo stated, "We are honored to receive this designation and proud of our seven-mile stretch of safe, clean beaches.  We welcome everyone to come and see for themselves why we are known as America's Greatest Family Resort." 


The City has made many improvements recently that attract day trippers in addition to a multi-million dollar beach replenishment effort, including aesthetic enhancements to the boardwalk and downtown improvements.  The City hosts a wide assortment of free events that attract crowds including Night in Venice and the Baby Parade, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. 


Ocean City has also continued to be a leader in ecotourism by enhancing public access to the bay, extending bike paths throughout the City and establishing a wide array of environmental programs.


The Best Beaches event was sponsored by the New Jersey Marine Sciences Consortium/New Jersey Sea Grant and the Richard Stockton College Coastal Research Center.
