Belmar Parasail

Reviewed By Donna G - Ocean

Took a friend who had never parasailed before and is afraid of heights and sharks. He was actually laughing as we were dunked and swirled in the ocean. We enjoyed the view And serene quiet up 300 feet in the air . We enjoyed the classic rock music during the boat ride and we clapped for each couple when they returned . Lots of fun..

Ocean Grove Beach

Reviewed By Christine C - USA

I live close to a few beaches and this is one of my favorites! Ocean Grove's family friendly atmosphere extends to the beach and its boardwalk. While it can get crowded during the summer months, I always have a relaxing time when I am here.

Silverball Pinball Museum

Reviewed By giftedelaine - Bridgewater NJ USA

Today, we went to this museum on the Asbury Park boardwalk not knowing what to expect and, boy, did we have a great time! We are not pinball players, but thought this would be fun and it was. Retro pinball machines, arcade games, skeeball, hockey, pong, vintage TV shows on the screens, and "kids" of all ages having a ball. It was a cold, rainy day today, so I don't know what it looks like in nice weather, but since this is not yet and summer season, it was quite cozy! The entrance is on the boardwalk side and it is packed with old, well maintained machines. Above the machines, there is brief history of the manufacturer and the history of the machine and what its goals for play are. You pay a one-day rate and you can play all day with the one admission. It was fun trying our luck from machine to machine. My husband loved an old vintage baseball pinball machine that tallied runs, hits,etc. and had little men "running" from base to base. There is a little "café" inside that serves basic snack foods, but there are also real restaurants nearby. The museum in a little "strip" near the Stone Pony. Don't know what parking is like during the "season" but now street and lot parking were available. I can't tell you the last time we had so much fun and it was fun watching others having fun as well. The one day pass is $25 but that is for unlimited play with in and out privileges. Tom, the manager, was very nice as was the staff in general. Highly recommend for you, your friends, your grandkids, etc. It's like a trip to a time where life was simpler and just fun.

Spring Lake Boardwalk

Reviewed By 001BillyV - Toms River, New Jersey

This is our favorite boardwalk at the Shore. We walk this boardwalk several times a season. Each time it is a pleasure.
The beach & boardwalk are always well maintained & clean.
If you get tired of the ocean view, walk a few blocks west & enjoy the beautiful landscaped million $$$ homes. Just an enjoyable place to walk.

The Great Auditorium

Reviewed By deezmayer - Ridgefield Park, New Jersey

What an awesome/inspiring night--112 choirs, 600+ participating singers, a small orchestra, a huge pipe organ & in the great auditorium. There were also several congregational hymns so we could sing along (even if we couldn't care a tune)! The auditorium and tent city (May to October) are must sees; sitting on the boardwalk enjoying the ocean sounds/smells so peaceful. Concert was free; we'll never forget this night.

Asbury Park Boardwalk

Reviewed By Jerry W - New Jersey

Some of the shops and the restaurants along the boardwalk are ok and other so-so. Be prepared to (1) pay to ge on the beach (2) pay beach prices; and (3) note it is a well patrolled subdued atmosphere. Both the beach and the boardwalk are wide but nothing special. Nice for a weekday stroll.

The Headliner Night Club

Reviewed By avonbeach - Avon by the Sea, NJ

If you like to dance, then this is the spot for you and your friends! There are multiple DJ's inside and outside on the patio. Definitely the largest nightclub at the Jersey Shore. Bartenders are awesome! Fun place to go. They also have a birthday club. Sign up online and the birthday gal/guy gets to invite 50 of his/her friends with discounted drinks for 2 hours. Birthday prices start at $2.50 for beers & $3 for drinks. Best deal around! Everyone on your birthday list gets in for FREE! Check it out if you haven't already!

InfoAge - Science History Learning Center and Museum

Reviewed By Michael G - Point Pleasant, New Jersey

Inside a decommissioned military communications site is a pretty extensive museum. Especially worthwhile is the communication exhibit, with old radios and TVs. There are some hands on exhibits. Before Christmas they offer a train exhibit. Be forewarned that this is not an polished museum. It is a local museum staffed by knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers. The exhibit rooms are well done, but it is in a old military installation. The building and site are part of history.
