Voted the coolest small town in America 2017 and one of The 14 Best Beaches in the World 2018 (Time), Asbury Park New Jersey is an easy road trip from New York or Philadelphia. The revitalized Boardwalk offers great shopping, dining and views of one of the East Coast's most beautiful beaches. First developed in the 1880s as a resort town it boasts a plethora of spectacular Victorian homes. The beacon of the beachfront is the Beaux Arts style Convention Hall, which bestrides the Boardwalk at the northern end. Asbury Park launched Bruce Springsteen into the world, and has remained a music mecca with concerts in Convention Hall (capacity 4000) The Paramount Theater (Capacity 2500) and the legendary Stone Pony all year round. The boardwalk is punctuated with shopping pavilions, a water park, mini golf, Paradise - at the Empress Hotel - the largest gay nightclub in New Jersey, and unique shopping downtown on Cookman Ave. NJ transit trains leave hourly from NY Penn station and arrive in Asbury Park in less than two hours. From the station you're just a 5 minute walk along Cookman Ave to dipping your toes in the Atlantic Ocean.
