A gem on the Jersey Shore

The perfect beach getaway, Asbury Park draws vacationers with its endless family fun and thriving cultural scene. Spend warm summer days soaking up the sun, building sandcastles, and strolling the boardwalk with a chocolate ice cream cone in hand, and nights hopping around historic music venues with concerts for every taste. With an array of Asbury Park vacation rentals in walking distance to the Atlantic coast, you’ll find it’s easy to watch the sunrise from the sand or head to an oceanfront eatery for dinner. But don’t forget to explore inland too, where parks and trails offer a nature-filled escape.

Making music in Asbury Park

Asbury Park is known as a music destination, thanks to a certain man named Bruce Springsteen who grew up nearby and named his first album after the city. You can hear live music at classic venues like The Stone Pony, which opened in the 1970s, and The Saint, a tiny club that’s featured some huge acts. If you visit in the summer, look out for free evening concerts at parks and around the boardwalk area.

Family fun in Asbury Park

Nothing says Jersey Shore fun like an oceanfront esplanade, and the Asbury Park Boardwalk does not disappoint. Kids of all ages will love getting soaked at the giant splash pad, hitting a hole-in-one at the miniature golf course, and playing some of the 200-plus games at the Silverball Museum Arcade, also known as the Pinball Hall of Fame. You can also admire the Wooden Walls Mural Project, a series of public artworks that make fantastic backdrops for a group photo. There’s plenty of restaurants and food trucks close to Asbury Park vacation rentals, for when you’re in the mood for oysters or ice cream.

Summer on the beach in Asbury Park

Summer in Asbury Park means mild daytime temperatures perfect for playing in the waves, and cool evenings spent watching the sunset. Most Asbury Park vacation rentals are just a few blocks from the coast, which makes it easy to pack up the family and walk to the beach. You’ll need to stop by the entry booths for a beach badge to hit the sand during the busiest summer times, but this keeps the crowds lower for a more enjoyable day. If you visit in spring or fall, it might be too chilly for swimming, but the kids can still play in the sand while you relax and breathe in the salty sea air.

Asbury Park by land or sea

Asbury Park is a great launching point for fishing in the Atlantic, and plenty of charters are available to take you out into the deep sea. If you prefer inland adventures, try Allaire State Park. Located on the Manasquan River, the park has more than 200 types of flora and is a stopping place for birds migrating along the Atlantic Flyway. The whole family will enjoy visiting the old village located here, where you can check out a blacksmith shop, general store, and church while learning about life in the 19th century from costumed interpreters.
