The King Tide Gives Us A Peek Into The Potential Future Of The Jersey Shore And It’s Happening Soon

Do you ever wonder what New Jersey will look like in 10, 20, or 30 years? Our coastline is constantly changing. Erosion (receding shorelines) and accretion (advancing or developing shorelines) mean that the Jersey Shore looks a lot different today than it did decades ago.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Before you panic, remember that this is just a projection based on CURRENT data. If environmental changes are made in the near future, the more distant future may not look like this. Still, the King Tide serves as an annual reminder of what could be, not too long from now.
