We’re thrilled to be recognized by Coastal Living, and to add this to a long list of accolades.
Ocean City, NJ (PRWEB) April 14, 2016
Co-Owner of local Newspaper Ocean City NJ Daily (OCNJ Daily), Ken Wisnefski, proclaims South Jersey is on the Rise, as Ocean City NJ is named Best Beach in America by Coastal Living Magazine. On account of its new distinction, Ocean City will be featured in the June 2016 issue of Coastal Living Magazine as well as in a special online package.
Coastal Living editors asked each state in America for their best beach. The newly bestowed title on Ocean City was the result of a March Madness bracket style match up of 32 shore towns across America, wherein internet users were encouraged to vote for their favorites. Ocean City, NJ collected over 100,000 votes in all, putting it over the top against Huntington Beach, California in the final bracket.
"As both a resident of Ocean City and co-owner of the local paper, OCNJ Daily, I can truly say that we are very proud and honored by this new distinction,” said Wisnefski. “While Ocean City has been the top shore town destination for Philadelphians, people in the tri-state, and the country looking for a family friendly summer vacation getaway for over a century, it is also a truly wonderful and fulfilling place to live. We’re thrilled to be recognized by Coastal Living, and to add this to a long list of accolades.”
“The contest included a lot of beautiful beaches, but the voters knew that Ocean City is much more than that,” Mayor Jay Gillian said. “It’s a tradition and a part of life for generations of residents and guests. Days on the beach and boardwalk nights in Ocean City are the fabric of many fond memories for people across the country. We all feel blessed to live in such a wonderful place and proud that so many visitors share our passion.”
