New Jersey Has One Of The Best Off-Season Beach Towns In America
After Labor Day, many popular beach towns slow down as we head into fall. However, Daily Passport recently named the best off-season beach towns, and a New Jersey was named among the best. Daily Passport provides an enlightening perspective saying, “The long, warm summer days may be gone, but the good news is so are the crowds from America’s most popular coastal towns.”
The best off-season beach towns named here are all across the country. From northern Florida to California and up the coast of Oregon, these areas all see significant local traffic throughout the year.
In New Jersey, we are talking about a town that just held one of the biggest annual music festivals in the state last weekend in Sea.Hear.Now.
The infamous boardwalk in Asbury Park loosens the collar on dog rules in mid-September. Dogs are allowed on the boardwalk from September 15 to May 15 as long as they are leashed and supervised.
Obviously, you can’t mention Asbury Park and not mention the legendary Stony Pony. This venue has top-performing acts all year. In fact, there are already some big names on their calendar for the remainder of the year. This includes Jake Clemmons (from Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band), Lukas Nelson, and Marky Ramone.
A wide range of unique museums also draw attention all year in Asbury Park. The Paranormal Museum on Cookman Ave has Ghost tours perfect for this time of year. Then, see why Asbury Park is called the Pinball Capital at the Silverball Retro Arcade. They offer over 600 games on rotation.
In addition to taking advantage of the weekly arts scene, the Daily Passport suggests checking out the “new boutique hotels, quirky shops and galleries, and an impressive array of restaurants that offer old-school Italian options, Korean tacos, and, of course, terrific seafood.”
Though Asbury Park was the only New Jersey spot named among the best off-season beach towns, it was not alone in the Northeast. Mystic, Connecticut and Nantucket were also named.
