Asbury Park's Beach and Boardwalks
Asbury Park is a great place to shop, dine, go to the theatre, stroll the boardwalk or enjoy the beach and surf. The city has a wonderful downtown mixed with Zagat-rated restaurants and clubs with a mix of art galleries, antique and retail shops. On the first Saturday of each month they celebrate "First Saturday Asbury Park" and the restaurants and shops are open late for visitors to come and enjoy. The boardwalk has a mix of fine restaurants where you can sample a wide variety of cuisine. It also boasts a surf shop, art gallery, glass studio where you can make your own glass creation. There's also a pottery shop where you can select from various earth ware creations. New to the boardwalk this summer is the Silver Ball Museum. It houses hundreds of antique pinball games for the visitor to view and play. Just beyond the boardwalk the beach is as vibrant as the rest of the town. Visitors can enjoy the sun and surf on the clean and life-guard protected beach with summer time fireworks. Asbury Park events are non-stop through out the year. They host a Jazz Festival and Oyster Festival every summer. The Revision Theatre performs in the Carousel building on the boardwalk. And don't forget to check the schedule for the Paramount Theatre. Asbury Park is accessible by New Jersey TRANSIT and Academy buses and by the North Jersey Coast Line train.
