“Lots of improvements over the last 10 years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We last visted Asbury Park and the boardwalk 10 years ago when it was still a bit rundown.

There have been a huge range of improvements and businesses opening here since our last visit. The place had a buzz about it and the beach was immaculately clean. We enjoyed a walk along the boardwalk with a coffee and a browse in the shops. Not so keen on the $2 an hour parking charge!

Its great to see all the improvements taking place.

“Not your average boradwalk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

As Asbury Park continues it's slow rebirth, the boardwalk is the place to be in town. It's nothing like S. Jersey boardwalks. No rides, arcades, cheap pizza, fudge etc. It's more upscale, with some fancy restaurants, nice stores, but still some empty spaces, and lots and lots of room for improvement. There's the Paramount Theater and the Stone Pony for rock shows, and you get an unusual mix of people because of the different draws. Curious what it will be like in 20 years.

“Getting a little better every year”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The Asbury boardwalk is still far from what it was, but is has been making steady progress the last few years.
Every year the restaurants, bars and amusements get better with a larger selection.
