Jersey Shore Fact of the Day 12: Boardwalks are busy on Easter

If you head down the shore on Easter Sunday looking for a nice, peaceful stroll down the boardwalk, forget it. It'll be a busy busy day.

For a lot of shore businesses, Easter weekend is the start of their season (and Easter being late this year wasn't helpful). Easter Sunday is also when a lot of the ride operators sell tickets at deep discounts. I went to the Ocean City boardwalk in Easter 2009, and lines at ticket windows stretched across and down the boardwalk.

Playland in Ocean City and Morey's Piers in Wildwood put details of their Easter sales online. If you have your heart set on another ride pier, give them a shout.

Going to Hunt's Pier on Easter was a family tradition when I was growing up, and continued when my sons where young. Our light weight Easter outfits were never practical for the cold spring sea breeze up on the boardwalk- always freezing!
