BEST TIME TO TRAVEL AND VISIT ATLANTIC CITY AND THE NEW JERSEY SHORE

New Jersey shore weather is very similar to that of New York. It's changeable, with moderate precipitation all year long. Snow is restricted to the December-March period.

Temperatures tend to be more moderate and there is less snow in the winter than in New York.

Mid-spring - May, June – or late-summer and early-fall – September, October - are excellent months for visiting the New Jersey shore, unless you want to enjoy the beach life of New Jersey sea resorts (the summer months are, in that case, the best).


WHEN NOT TO GO TO NEW JERSEY SHORE

You may want to avoid the weekends, which tend to be very crowded, as well as the winter months, when temperatures may be very low.

Humidity and high temperatures may turn July and August uncomfortable months in some New Jersey's sites, though this may me softened or inverted in the beach resorts.
