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..

We brought our 27 month old and 2 month old for a visit and had a great time. We arrived shortly after 9 am opening (in December ) and viewed all exhibits and even seal and penguin feedings -all without waning interest of such a short attention span of a 2 year old! Maybe next time our toddler will be old enough to enjoy the 'touch tank'! The employees are so informative, caring, and attentive to youngsters it will be a pleasure to come back. Beautiful tanks are full of curious inhabitants who closely greet visitors. We viewed snakes, monkeys, macaws, & salamanders as well.

Ocean Grove Beach

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.

We have attended quite a few productions at this theater and have found all to be well performed and staged. This recreation of the aging Algonquin Theater is a genuine addition to the arts community. Professional theater equipment complements the local and touring artists in a comfortable space.

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 Sea Girt Lighthouse is well worth a trip to the beautiful town of Sea Girt. The lighthouse is well maintained, so it's easy to imagine what it was like to visit 100 years ago. Stop at the Parker House across the street for lunch on the outdoor terrace.

Jenkinson's Boardwalk

Reviewed By Matanda28 - Somerset, New Jersey

we always come down for the day during the early and late months of the off season- mid Sept. cant be beat! it is mostly locals and most things are still open. Lots of arcades w/ photo booths, and games to win prizes. There are tons of great beach food options-Jersey shore pizza ( really cant be beat), funnel cake, beer, etc.. prices are a bit high, but that's to be expected. Crowds aren't too thick, but parking can be tough - if you are willing to walk a few blocks, you can find something. It's a quaint but lively area- good energy and a nice boardwalk for walking. It's busy as can be during the summer, but wonderfully peaceful during the offseason.
