Visitors to the Jersey shore this Memorial Day weekend will find many of their favorite beaches and boardwalks ready for summer, thanks to a massive rebuilding effort after Superstorm Sandy. While several neighborhoods remain damaged, all but one of the storm-wrecked boardwalks should be ready for Memorial Day weekend, and amusement rides will still be available from Keansburg to Wildwood. Most beaches will be open, despite losing sand during the storm. (AP Photo/Wayne Parry)

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie cut a ribbon to symbolically reopen the state's shore for the summer season, seven months after being devastated by Superstorm Sandy. This year's ceremonies are more poignant seven months after a storm that did an estimated $37 billion of damage in the state.
