Relax under the boardwalk or down by the sea

About an hour south of New York City and stretched along Central Jersey's Atlantic Coast, Monmouth County serves as the gateway to the Jersey Shore. With over 50 miles of beaches, the sandy coastline is perfect for visitors eager to wet their toes in the cool Atlantic waters, go fishing, or take a ferry ride up to the Big Apple. Opt for a Monmouth County vacation rental right on the water, or go further inland where there are plenty of restaurants, theaters, and nightlife to keep you and your crew just as busy.

How to pack a beach bag to take you from day to night?

With towering lighthouses, crashing waves, and leaping dolphins, Monmouth County's true highlight is the shore. But thanks to bustling downtowns full of restaurants and theaters, the inland area is not short on things to do and see, either. There are plenty of historical Revolution-era sites to occupy even the most curious novice historians, and families will love the annual events throughout the county -- from seafood and jazz festivals to country fairs and movies on the beach. It will be tricky to pack for your Monmouth County vacation rental when there are so many options!

Brush off the sand and brush up on your history

While the coastline and its boardwalks is certainly Monmouth County's most notable attraction, it is not, by any stretch, its only. Visitors travel from around the region to place their bets at the race track, while the theater scene is full of local talent. The Monmouth Museum features exhibits highlighting both local and natural history, as well as regionally acclaimed and up-and-coming artists. Miles of state parks stretch throughout the county, and there are even a few local wineries on hand for anyone interested in trying some of the regional fare.

By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea

Central Jersey celebrates 4 seasons, with summer serving as the travel peak. The beaches are packed from June through August, and finding a Monmounth County vacation rental in summer can be tricky. For visitors in the spring or fall, expect comfortable days and chilly nights, especially down by the sea. The beaches are practically empty in winter, save for the locals who still enjoy a stroll on the sand... often with their dogs, who are allowed on certain beaches in the off-season. Expect a dump of winter snow, and plan to bundle up from November through March.

From rolling hills down into crashing waves

Aside from a few rolling hills, Monmouth County is mostly flat, right down to sea level. Here, locals enjoy fishing along the Atlantic Coast, and in the rivers and bays that flow into the Raritan and Lower New York Bays. The Manasquan Inlet connects the Atlantic with the Manasquan Estuary, a saltwater body that leads into the Intracoastal Waterway. The 50-plus miles of beaches offer plenty of wildlife dotting the sandy shoreline, and dolphins can often be spotted in the summer months while seagulls fly overhead nearly year-round.
