Much closer than any other beach that we've gone to, and also much more enjoyable. a huge stretch of beach and with a perfect vista of the great blue seas, my husband joined my daughter in the ocean, which they claimed to be teeming with crabs and jellyfish. When the tides came up during the afternoon, they said they'd seen... More

Plenty of action, bikes to rent, cafes to lurk all day with any food you want. I really enjoyed Blu Nami Sushi with spectular presentation, mixed crowd. Chance to take exercise, also shelter in the arcade at Paramount Theater

I hate to age myself but when I was young 3 decades ago this place was a ghetto. I remember being little and staying in the next town Deal with my family and riding to Asbury Park. I was scared even as a little kid holding onto my mom as if for dear life. Than as a young adult about... More

Hey, at just under 2 hours and only a $30 round trip ticket on Jersey Transit from Penn Station, this little gem of a get-away to the ocean is a steal! You can walk the entire boardwalk in Asbury Park and go further to Ocean Grove in an easy sun drenched half-hour. After a lovely stroll, try some of the... More

Best part was being able to pay for parking and buy beach tickets are the kiosk. Easy to find parking and very close to the beach area. The boardwalk had a few bars and resturaunts and acitivities. The beach was clean and the water was a bit cold.

Had a wonderful time on the boardwalk. Be prepared to pay to sit on the beach though. Great to bring some of the old character and some new character to the walk. Lots to eat,lots to buy and nice white sandy beach to enjoy.Great place.

I realize that the Asbury Park Boardwalk has seen an improvement over its former lives. However, it still leaves a lot (=everything) to be desired. We stopped by the boardwalk on a trip home from Point Pleasant with a toddler in tow. It was the late morning, and the boardwalk was already radiating heat to the point that my son... More

I just love this place!! A great place to hang out and "people watch". From sitting in one of the many bars, to lounging around on the beach........it's one of my favourite coastal destinations.

What a fun boardwalk to walk around or sit on the bench and watch the ocean. Not the carnival atmosphere of some other boardwalks but great shops and restaurants.

I loved how laid back and clean this boardwalk is - it's very relaxing and calm with a bunch to do at the same time. Really great restaurants like Stella Marina and awesome places to eat/drink right on the boardwalk with great views. There's mini golf, a splash park, ice cream, shops, and more. The beach was clean and beautiful.... More
