Great to see the rebirth of the Asbury Park Boardwalk and surrounding area. The revival has been unreal with upscale restaurants, pubs, and shops poping up all over the place. Convention hall is in full swing like in the 50's/60's with concerts, shows, movies and special events. The boards are wide and new for a great summer, fall, or spring... More

With the ghosts of Bruce Springsteen stories wafting through the arcades, while the fireworks are hailin' over Little Eden tonight, forcin' a light into all those stony faces left stranded on this warm July, it's impossible not to experience a tinge of what the Jersey Shore was not too long ago. ENJOY THESE MOMENTS as they pass all too soon.

We spent 4 days in Asbury park for a wedding. We walked on the boardwalk several times and it was very nice. It has lots of good restaurants and shops. Asbury Park as a whole is a very nice town.

What a lovely boardwalk....obviously new (since storm Sandy). As it was Halloween weekend, there must have been a doggie dress/costume thing and just walking around, seeing the costumes was a treat. I am sure when it's the 'season', it's even nicer than ever.

Stayed this week at the Berkeley Hotel and got out on the boardwalk every chance I got. Took a memorable early pre-sunrise run along the boardwalk. 45 degrees and exhilarating. Felt like I was running back in time and into the future at the same time.

This Boardwalk takes you back to the early days when life seemed easier, the beauty of the long walk on the boardwalk seeing the beautiful beach line and fresh ocean air.

My wife and I called in here during our cross-US road trip in October 2016. It is our namesake city ('Asbury'), and we were excited to visit. Some parts of the town have lovely homes, and manicured gardens. Other parts are more run-down. I believe the 2012 storms damaged the town a lot. We parked near the boardwalk and walked... More

The ocean is still here & it's a great place to be with your dog, go for a run or a leisurely bike ride it's great. Best time of year he year is September to early Nov. & then during the spring. The summer brings the hordes. Parking is tough, restaurants are filled & at night the boardwalk is jammed.... More

The city, artists, entrepreneurs, and business partners are doing a great job in restoring historical buildings, adding new hotels and apartments, music bars and restaurants. Terrific Victorian and Beaux-Arts architecture, art galleries, vintage/antique stores, public art murals. A mile-long boardwalk that allows you to enjoy the ocean, sand, biking, walking, dining and people-watching. 1.5 commute from NYC and Philly. We... More
