#2 of 10 in Things to do in Asbury Park
Lined with shops, restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues, Asbury Park Boardwalk is one of the epicenters of activity for the world-famous New Jersey coast. Stretching about 0.6 km (1 mi) along the Atlantic Ocean, the wooden walkway has been largely responsible for the surrounding city's growth as a vacation destination since the turn of the 20th century. Wander along the beach to take in the sights and sounds of the sea, peek into stylish art galleries, or simply grab a bite at one of the many restaurants along the strip. Be sure to check online schedules for the many concert halls in the area, which frequently host big-name performances; the Stone Pony is one of the United States's most famous venues.

  • It was a rainy cold day but the lifeguards were kind enough to let us just take a walk being my friend had never been to an American beach before. It was just us so that was really romantic and fun. G...  more »
  • I'm obviously biased as I live here, but it really is the best boardwalk around. Not obnoxious like Point or Seaside, most of the restaurants are high quality and it's cheap to get on the beach.  more »
  • It was freshing to see a place that stuck with tradition. Strolling on the wood boardwalk was fun and nostalgic. Great people watching even during the off season.  more »

  • Great family atmosphere! Great for all families! Your children, spouses, partners, and even your dog will love it! Beach is dog friendly (check website for hours). Hours may change. Beach badges are affordable! Be ready to have fun! Enjoy!
  • It has come a long way recovering from Hurricane Sandy. Can't wait to see it when it is all done. Good food and great ice-cream. You have to pay to use the beach. They have bathrooms on site that stay reasonably clean when the crowds descend. The beach is beautiful.
  • Nice location. Ample car park. Quite many options for food. Good for families as well. We love Eddie's Ice cream which is right on the board walk and perfect way to cool off in hot summer days.
  • Beautiful beach views and lots of businesses to visit. Boardwalk magician adds character. Only downside is some of the attractions are needlessly expensive. But all in all a beautiful place to spend the say or evening at the shore.
  • Parking for the beach and boardwalk gets very busy on the weekends as the day goes on. If you don't get there early, be prepared to park as far back as main st. or further. Beach is clean and the boardwalk is nice. Use the bathrooms in the convention center as the lines tend to be shorter than the rest of the boardwalk.
