There have already been crowds at the Wildwood boardwalk with high temperatures coming early this year. Some say a mid-week Fourth will dilute the business impact, while others see a boost to both weekends.  
There have already been crowds at the Wildwood boardwalk with high temperatures coming early this year. Some say a mid-week Fourth will dilute the business impact, while others see a boost to both weekends.

 July Fourth is one of the most highly-anticipated holidays for Cape May County. But when the Fourth falls on a Wednesday, like it does this year, determining how business will fare is challenging.

“It kind of gives us a double hit,” Diane Weiland, director of the county’s tourism department said. “Historically, it’s good for business.”

Weiland explained that some visitors will have already come down to the Cape the previous weekend, and might stay through the Fourth. Others, she said, will travel to the shore on the Fourth, and stay through the weekend of July 6 and 7.

According to Weiland, the county sees about 192,000 people a day on weekends. For holiday weekends, that number can shoot up to 700,000 a day, most likely because of “day trippers” to the Jersey Cape.
