Our family lives in Princeton and we love to come to Ocean Grove on weekends. Since I work full-time and my children are full-time students and lead active lives, we feel like every weekend is a mini-vacation at our shore house in OG. Our family owns a Golden Retriever, Casey, that really enjoys the water and being outside. We take Casey with us wherever we go. She particularly loves the beach and running on the sand and chasing the seagulls! We also love to walk around Fletcher Lake, which is less than 2 blocks away and borders Bradley Beach. Casey also tries to jump in the water and chase all of the ducks and swans that inhabit the lake.
I was very interested in purchasing a home down the shore. I had heard about the quaint town of Ocean Grove from friends. We wanted something within an hours drive of Princeton so that we can spend weekends there during the summer. I went to OG one weekend in the spring of 2011 and fell in love with the area. We made an offer on our home that day and have enjoyed our home and OG immensely ever since! I'm a Jersey-girl, born and raised, and am familiar with many of the coastal towns in southern Jersey. Iwas taken aback by how family-friendly and charming this town is. The cleanliness of the whole town/beach, the Victorian homes, the old style ice cream parlors and diners/restaurants - all remind me of another era. The people here are extremely friendly and we love to walk the main street with our golden and talk to people as we walk by.
One of our favorite things to do when we come down to Ocean Grove is play tennis at the nearby hard court with our kids. We have a season membership and will provide a key to the court, as well as 2-3 racquets for you to enjoy. The court is only 2 short blocks away. Thre is also a dog park immediately next to our block, where pets and children love to play. After a lovely day at the beach, my family enjoys exploring the many excellent restaurants that the area has to offer. We love sipping drinks and snacking on the front porch of Moonstruck at dusk.
Arts & crafts shows, flea markets, music concerts, miniature golf, and fireworks every Wednesday night and movies on beach every Thursday night in Asbury Park.
