What’s Open This Weekend In The Wildwoods (June 26th-June 28th)
We are one week into summer and we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel for Covid-19 restrictions.
As we head into the weekend let’s do our recap of what will be open this weekend in the Wildwoods.
Currently New Jersey is in Stage 2 of the covid-19 reopening plan with a Stage 3 date not announced as of yet.
Stage two began on June 15th and allowed outdoor dining and limited in-person retail.
In addition to these the Governor has allowed boardwalk games to reopen and gave pools an opening date of Monday June 22nd.
So does this mean for down here.
At this moment arcades, amusement rides and waterparks are not open.
There is good news on that front through. On Tuesday Governor Phil Murphy announced that as of Thursday July 2nd outdoor amusement parks, outdoor water parks and playground can finally open!! This means Morey’s Piers will open on July 2nd.

On Wednesday Governor Murphy also announced that on Thursday July 2nd arcades can open at 25% capacity.
And one more announcement he gave was that indoor dining at 25% capacity can start on July 2nd. You can read about that by clicking the link below.
Now on to what is open!
Most restaurants on the boardwalk and off the boardwalk are open for business. Restaurants have already started their outdoor dining. If you want to watch a video on how that looks click the link below.
Many boardwalk businesses do not have an outdoor seating area which would mean that they are could be take-out only.
The beaches are open to sit and enjoy! The weather for this weekend is a bit cloudy and isn’t looking like beach weather but it’s nice to have the option to relax.
When your done eating be sure to put your trash in the cans and keep the trash out of the street.
Bars are open for drinks to-go. This is something very new. If you want the full article click HERE but the gist is that now you can get drinks from your favorite bar and take it home to drink it.
Mayor Pete Byron used his executive power to close Pacific Avenue to traffic to help businesses be able to use the Right-of-Way in front of their stores for dining tables. From Schellenger Ave to Spicer Ave the streets are closed creating a “Pacific Avenue Mall.” You can watch a video tour of this mall below.
Motels and Hotels ARE open! Give your favorite spot a call and see if they have any rooms open. Pools will be allowed to open on June 22nd (Click the link below for more details)
As of June 10th Mini-golf and officially open!
As a reminder, It is STILL required to wear a mask when visiting ANY businesses even if it’s on the boardwalk.
Governor Murphy is also urging people to wear a mask or face covering while in more crowded areas or on the boardwalks.
Keep in mind that these rules and orders do change quickly. Tune back later for more info!
