I really enjoyed visiting Point Pleasant Beach in New Jersey, even though I visited in the colder months when there was snow on the beach. It is a big beach with a path for bicycles and cottages behind that. There is lots of space and you get a good view of the whole beach!

Good sand, clean beach, parking can be expensive so park around the lake, where there are no meters. Fun Boardwalk with rides and games for all ages. Good restaurants in town. Something for everyone.

The annual seafood festival starts early, so the parking is a problem if you arrive late. It is nice to see the individual stands with a variety of sea food for sale. I settled for the sea food fest combo which includes a Maine lobster tail, snow crab cluster and six shrimp plus cole slaw for $15. If you never... More
