    The 2009 shore season started early thanks to warm temps.

    Take a beach get away this weekend and make the most of this summer-like weather.

    There are lots of great deals to be had down the shore this season because of the economic downturn.

    Morey’s Piers in Wildwood, N.J. offers family-oriented fun. There are more than 100 amusement park rides and attractions including two beachfront water parks right off the boardwalk.

    Morey's Pier will host 20 free concerts during the summer with special savings on some days of the week.
