The New Jersey Tourism Industry Association (NJTIA), the state’s premier tourism advocacy group invites all to enjoy the miles of Jersey Coastline that will be open regardless of a potential state government shut down.
NJTIA, the statewide advocacy leader for the $45 billion tourism industry invites all to the many miles of the Jersey shore and parks that will be open for the popular July Fourth Holiday. Though the focus of many news feeds have been situated around the possible NJ Government shutdown due to the final approval of a budget, NJTIA would like to reassure vacationers who enjoy the natural resources of the shore that the majority will be open.
Most of the favorite beach destinations are operated directly by municipalities. Though state park beaches may not be accessible in the event of a government shutdown, all others will be operating and making sure that the start of Summer 2018 brings plenty of fun in the sun. NJTIA also reminds everyone that legislation has been passed that even if a shutdown occurs, New Jersey casinos will remain open as usual.
NJTIA encourages all who have plans in the following state parks and beaches to contact the park directly either by phone or online to see how the potential shut down would impact them:
