CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, N.J. (CBS) – Temperatures around here this weekend will make most of us think summer, rather than fall. Tourism officials down the shore insist their prime time may be over, but they’re still very busy.

For those of you who might think they roll up the boardwalk after Labor Day, think again.

“It’s a beautiful time to be here,” Clark told KYW Newsradio. “Low humidity. Warm, sunny days. The water is warm. The beaches are beautiful. It’s not as crowded with family vacations. Beautiful photo optics. Plus it’s not the summer season rate so it’s a little more affordable.”

Planning may be strategic. But the weather? That’s just pure luck.
