During the past three years the number of visitors to our sea-side resorts has been larger than at any previous period of their history. The hotels and cottages have been taxed to their utmost capacity to provide for their guests, and during the summer of 1880 it was no uncommon sight, at any of our sea-side resorts, to see hundreds of visitors wan dering about, from house to house, in search of accommoda tions which could not be provided. The visitors to the sea-shore embrace representatives from all parts of our country, for our excellent railway system has so annihilated time and distance that the sea is now within easy reach of the dwellers in the most inland States. During the past four years the number of Western and Southern visitors to the sea-coast of New Jersey has been steadily increasing, and bids fair to grow from year to year. Those who experience for themselves the pleasures of a sojourn at the sea-side are sure to relate their experience to their friends on their return home, and the next summer sees a larger throng of travelers to the sea.
