Growing up here from the 60s through the 90s, we thought Asbury was a goner. The start of its comeback was surely the Paramount, which, through dedicated volunteers, historians, and booking everything from local theater to bar mitsvahs, slowly was refurbished to its former glory. Now seeing the likes of Clapton, Dylan, women's roller derby, and the record-setting October zombie walk, the Paramount is only one of several reasons to visit this rock-and-roll shoretown. It may not have rides, but it does have eclectic restaurants, clubs, and remnants of what once was (including a casino and cooling tower) and what it might yet be. This summer, even the swan boats were back on the lake between AP and Ocean Grove.
