Welcome to Asbury Park

A Fabulous Jersey Shore Town

Amazing food, eclectic shopes, exciting nightlife, family activities, and so much more.  Did you know Asbury Park has one of the BEST live music scenes in the world?  Some of the best have performed on various stages.  And of course we all know “BRUCE” is a huge Asbury Fan.  Check out just a few of these hotspots in Asbury Park:

Asbury Park is located beachfront promenade.   There is something for everyone at the Boardwalk. It’s a great place to dine, shop, go to the theatre, walk the boards or enjoy the beach and surf. The city has a wonderful downtown area mixed with Zagat-rated restaurants and clubs with a mix of art galleries, antique and retail shops.

Asbury Park has drawn a younger, city-dwelling group the past few years. Yes, Asbury has always had some fabulous venues, with the influx of people from the city, new hip coffee shops, boutique hotels, and NYC-quality restaurants, and fabulous shopping continues to grow here.

Asbury is only about 60 miles from Manhattan,  making it easily accessible for a simple day trip.  I will tell you, “shore” traffic on the weekends in NJ can be brutal so plan accordingly if you are going to drive down for the day!  Asbury Park has a train station and New Jersey Transit offers service directly here.   That may be a better option for those hoping to spend the majority of their time on the beaches vs fighting with traffic.
