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 over 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.
