Recognizing the importance of taking time off to travel—both for personal wellbeing and for the overall economic prosperity of communities. The Southern Ocean Chamber, funded in part by the NJ Division of Travel and Tourism through statewide grants has put important information at the fingertips of early birds who are looking for quick getaways or long awaited summer stays.  According to the US Travel Association, each year, Americans leave more than 600 million vacation days unused, and through the New Jersey Tourism Industry Association work year round in keeping visitors aware of the benefits of time well spent right in the LBI Region.

In addition to the digital guide, planners can get latest updates from their virtual visitor center  as well as the newly launched Coastal NJ Interactive Newsroom found here   The Southern Ocean Chamber provides resources on behalf of the business community and has been assisting visitors since 1914.
