Decent Beach. Is quite clean. Not as much crowded as other popular NJ beaches. Has a decent boardwalk. Parking is decent.

Usually bike the boardwalk there. Very pleasant. Beaches are clean and the time we go (before 10am) and usually aren't crowded.

We loved our experience at Asbury Park, and really enjoyed the boardwalk. There were lots of cute little restaurants and bars with every type of food and beautiful ocean views. The shops weren't generic, typical Jersey Shore type places, but small boutiques that showcased locally and regionally owned small businesses. Additionally, the boardwalk is very family friendly and AP in... More

We'd never been to Asbury Park. We loved it and will definitely go back again. My favorite part was the lack of a million people on a busy day like Father's Day. We are used to Point Pleasant (too crazy) and yet AP had just enough people and attractions to keep my 6 & 9 year olds entertained and enough... More

Enjoy a mile of boardwalk, some interesting diversions along the way. Leads into the Ocean Grove boardwalk and other villages, giving you the option to walk several miles on very level and easy boardwalk.

Unlike the boardwalks in South jersey, Asbury park has no amusements. Perfect for a stroll, holding hands with a loved one and a must.. a lemonade from squeeze. Make sure you check out, old convention all / The Paramount Theater. The architecture is amazing! there is a great beach bar to boot on the West side of the building as... More

Walk around see hot chicks. Stop at bars and get a cold one. Listen to stone pony music and rage out!! Beach is cool too. Walked around over the weekend and had a lot of fun.

I hadn't been to Asbury Park for 15 years. I was pleasantly surprised at the revitalization that took place! The shops were all open again, live music playing on the weekend. Beach was clean, lots of police presence. It felt very safe. Best of all lots of Springsteen memorabilia!
