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.

  • Boardwalk is a great size nice to walk laps on. Restaurants have a great selection and it's an enjoyable spot. Wonderful to see the efforts of wheelchair acccesability to the water. Artwork here and there is a pleasant surprise. If I was a young man running on the beach and volleyball would be awesome but I'm not so I stick to the food vendors and cocktails. Buskers along the boardwalk offer nice entertainment.
  • This was our first time at Asbury Park. It's $7 per person and children are free. We parked and hung out left of the boardwalk where it was less crowded and quiet. The beach is clean. They have real restrooms that are clean and decent. I didn't feel like it was overcrowded and disguising. After putting our things away and walking up the boardwalk, we noticed that it was very condensed on the beach in front of the boardwalk. I didn't get the chance to check out the beach area here, but I'd imagine it's nice due to the fact that it's so crowded there. There are some cute shops inside of the boardwalk. We stayed awhile looking through everything. Also located on the boardwalk are restaurants, an ice cream shop, and small boutiques. Forget your beach supplies? They have it all located in the boardwalk including towels, hats, toys, and food. Overall, it was worth $7 fee and I would come back.
