Walk the boards on a Sunday morning and get coffee or lunch in the convention center. Small shops with great gifts, good food, and don't forget to look up at the architecture surrounding you !!,

One time beach beauty now reduced to a crumbling relic . Yes you can eat there , drink there buy useless stuff there & even get a decent iced coffee, however the current guardian just makes patchwork fixes to run events here 52 weeks a year. Come visit take your iconic picture & maybe see a rockstar!

We took a stroll in here while in Asbury Park. Nice little shops as well as a theatre. Also has a nice restaurant that has a bar that you can hang out on the side beach.

Had tickets to see the Happy Together Tour last month. Was here only one other time and it is such a great venue for smaller audiences. We were all the way in the back of the balcony but we had a great view. They serve beverages and you can go out on the terrace from the second level - great... More

Went Saturday night fr the Happy Together Tour. Concert very good. The venue? Horrible. There was no air condition. This was one of the hottest days and humidity was very high. They were supposedly blowing air into the theater but it still had to be 95 degrees. Even the bands were adding jokes during their performances and had to remove... More

Great bands on hand as we went to celebrate our anniversary over the weekend. We love the Asbury Park area and visit as often as possible. We go to the Wonder Bar, The Stone Pony and several other spots to enjoy the local music.

No longer living on the east coast , it was nice to see that so much work has been done in restoring this wonderful landmark. The theatre and shops are back and it's probably @ 80% of its peak of years ago. Good job.
