Jersey Shore open for business as Memorial Day approaches

Posted: Updated:
SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. -

Visitors to the Jersey shore this weekend will find many of their favorite beaches and boardwalks ready for summer, thanks to a massive rebuilding effort after Superstorm Sandy.
    
While several neighborhoods remain damaged, all but one of the storm-wrecked boardwalks should be ready for Memorial Day weekend, and amusement rides will still be available from Keansburg to Wildwood.
    
Most beaches will be open, despite losing sand during the storm.
    
Shore rentals are still available; demand is running at about 75 percent of what it was at this point last year.
    
And despite highly publicized devastation in places like Mantoloking (mahn-toh-LOH'-king) and Ortley Beach, large stretches of the shore suffered little damage. Ortley's small boardwalk won't be ready until June.
