One of the things I miss the most since the start of the COVID-19 lockdown is going for a walk on the beautiful beaches or iconic boardwalks in our area.

Little by little things are starting to open up across the Garden State and yes, that officially includes some beaches! The beaches in Sea Isle City, Ocean City and Strathmere will be open for sunbathers starting this Saturday, according to a Press of Atlantic City report. You still must practice social distancing and gatherings are still not permitted on those beaches.

Here's a town by town beach and boardwalk opening list courtesy of the Press of Atlantic City.
