The Jersey Shore is always a hub of action, and never more so than in the summer. From the bustling boardwalks of Point Pleasant Beach and Wildwood to the luxurious resorts of Cape May, it can feel like every inch of the shore is packed. Are there any quiet retreats left? The answer is yes – and believe it or not, the most peaceful small town in New Jersey is only a few miles away from the beach hub of Asbury Park! This is the small town of Allenhurst, a beautiful town on the New Jersey Coast Line that often gets overlooked. Featuring historic buildings, delicious and unique restaurants, and a beach environment that’s a world apart from the busier shore towns even during the summer. While it has under 500 year-round residents, it’s worth making a trip to see what makes this town so unique.
