As we bid 2021 goodbye, it's time to delve into my crystal ball and see what the year 2022 holds!

Someone please keep track and let me know at the end of 2022 how I did!

1. Egg Harbor Township will get ANOTHER Dollar General Store!

Book it! Bet on it! It seems that EHT has been averaging a new Dollar General each year, and I see another popping up in 2022.

2. Atlantic City will still not have an indoor water park.

Please note - I'm not saying it won't happen, just not in 2022. Hopefully, Showboat continues forward with their proposed building of a water park - it just won't be ready in 2022.

3. The summer of 2022 in South Jersey will belong to Country Music!

Two big country music festivals are slated for the summer - the four-day Barefoot Country Music Fest in Wildwood in June and the three-day TidalWave Fest in Atlantic City in August. (Fingers crossed for some great weather in June and August!)

4. There will be a discussion of once again bringing a minor-league-level sport to Atlantic City.

It could be baseball or ice hockey, but something will be pitched for Atlantic City. (Here's hoping for long-term success if it does happen.)

5. The Atlantic City Airport will get another airline to regularly fly into Atlantic City.

2022 will bring with it the realization that small airports, like ACY, can do things that giant airports can't. People will feel safer flying in and out of a small airport.
