Spring Lake

Word of mouth is the way most people first hear about Spring Lake, a small beach resort town where visitors can return to the gracious age of elegance and sophistication.
 
A summer getaway for barons of industry in the mid 1800s, this small community has retained much of the exclusive aura of its Victorian heyday.
 
Simple pleasures await in the form of two miles of sparkling beach, fine dining (try the seafood at Island Palm Grill) and deep relaxation. (If you need the bright lights of big boardwalks, Asbury Park is just five minutes away.)
 
Spend a night or more in one of the dozen charming properties that make up the Historic Inns of Spring Lake.
 
All were built between 1870 and 1888. Then head to the boardwalk – a pristine and peaceful promenade without any neon, bells or whistles.
