Changes In Healthcare, Workforce Reducing Length Of Vacations

Despite all of the conflicting evidence and political antagonism over the resort’s tourism performance this summer, the simplest explanation may be the one offered by the Democratic political strategist James Carville during President Bill Clinton’s first run: “The economy, stupid.”

Regardless of any problems specific to Ocean City, East Coast resorts are reportedly having universal difficulty this year. The latest edition of the Smith Travel Report, which aggregates booking data from a network of franchise hotels, shows the Jersey Shore’s occupancy rate down 10.2 percent and Atlantic City down a whopping 20.4 percent.

Ocean City has seen a comparatively minor drop of three percent for June, as have the Delaware resorts and Virginia Beach.
