The World’s Best Beach Town Can Be Found Right Here In New Jersey

New Jersey is home to one of the best beach towns in the entire world. That’s a bold statement and, I’m sure, one that many will disagree with. But it’s not just myself who has deemed Asbury Park an international travel destination. Travel & Leisure Magazine ranked the hip hamlet on its list of the 50 Best Places To Travel in 2016. It came in at #10, beating out big cities like Denver (#23), Rio de Janeiro (#30) and Sicily (#35).

The same publication also listed The Asbury as one of the world’s best new hotels for 2017. Another incredible accolade? Asbury Park was named this year’s coolest small town in America by Budget Travel. Last, but not least, one of its beach bars was recently named among the best in the US. What makes this town so travel-worthy? Read on to find out.

I can’t get enough of this quirky city; a vibrant shore staple once again. It faced tough times but revitalization efforts are seeing some success. There’s always something new and exciting popping up…like this oceanfront food truck park.
