JERSEY SHORE - A new AAA poll found that the travelers will return to the Jersey Shore this year, despite Sandy's devastation.

"What we found is people are going to make a concentrated effort to visit the New Jersey Shore this summer," according to AAA spokesperson Tracy Noble. "People are not deterred that there's going to be construction in some areas."

Hotel owners in Avon-by-the-Sea say they are already seeing steady summer bookings. Some believe visitors may travel to the Shore just to see the damage and recovery firsthand.

Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty says visitors should not be concerned with debris in the water after the Department of Environmental Protection inspects and clears the areas.

The poll included 600 New Jersey residents, and 200 from Pennsylvania.
