NOTE: Due to scheduling, the On The Road in Margate will be on Thursday, not Tuesday. It's probably better anyway. We have scattered p.m. showers/storms in the forecast.
We're just a couple of days away from Memorial Day Weekend. The time when South Jersey kicks into high gear and the sleepy shore towns get brought back to life for those 14 weeks. So, before summer sets in, we're going to beat the crowd and head to a place that needs no introduction, Margate and Lucy the Elephant.

On The Road will take us to all 63 towns that we cover at The Press of Atlantic City. We will bring the weather to your community's events, schools and best scenic spots. All the while, we will uncover why each place is a "South Jersey Special".
Thanks to Press Graphics Artist Krishna Mathis and developer Mike DellaVecchia, you can learn about the towns as we go on our interactive page. Watch where "On the Road" has ventured to, find upcoming stops and view our real estate resource center, Where to Live.
By using #MartuccisMap on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, you can see each step, drive and leg of the journey. Want your place to be featured "On the Road"? Drop me a note there, too!

Did you know? The elephant was the summer home to a British Doctor for a year. That takes the elephant in the room to a whole new level.
