Asbury Park

This historic shore town features one of the best beaches in the state. Along with endless sand, great surf and unlimited fun, you’ll find a revitalized boardwalk that’s better than ever. You’ll also discover plenty of unique shops, eclectic restaurants with breathtaking views and the crown jewel—the restored Paramount Theater and Convention Hall.

Throughout the year, the historic downtown comes alive for numerous events from block parties to parades. Go to Asbury Park Chamber for the most up-to-date events calendar. You won’t want to miss: the Annual Asbury Park Restaurant Tour, Fourth of July Fireworks, AsburyFest, and the world record-breaking Asbury Park Zombie Walk.

If a weekend at the shore is in your plans, check out The Asbury Hotel - a restored Victorian-era hotel transformed into a vibrant and unique social stay. Relax on the rooftop bar while you take in the ocean view or enjoy an evening with you family watching a movie at the outdoor theater. The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel is one of the grand hotels of a bygone era with more than 250 restored suites and rooms offering modern luxury and classic beauty just steps away from the Atlantic ocean. Or enjoy an impressive and unforgettable stay at the St. Laurent Social Club or the always inviting, oceanfront Empress Hotel.

While in town, enjoy the city’s diverse and thriving restaurant scene. From Japanese to Mediterranean to Italian, it’s all here and it’s delicious. Restaurants like Kim Marie’s Eat & Drink Away and Bank on Mattison have quickly established themselves as culinary gems alongside favorites like Jimmy’s Italian Restaurant, Brando’s Citi Cucina, Moonstruck, Stella Marina, Langosta Lounge and Tim McLoone's Supper Club.

The Asbury Park experience isn't complete without entertainment. USA Today selected Asbury Park as one of the top ten places to listen to music. The Stone Pony, where Bruce Springsteen has made numerous appearances, is regarded as one of the world’s most famous music “scenes.” Asbury Park is also home to The Premier Theatre Company – renowned for bringing 30 years of entertainment across the Jersey Shore.
