The Asbury Park beach was named in a new list just released by Travel + Leisure of the Top 25 Beaches in the United States.
Travel + Leisure published their list May 19, right before the official kick-off to summer of Memorial Day weekend. Asbury Park is included among beaches such as Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, Poipu Beach in Hawaii, Coronado Beach in San Diego and Oak Street Beach on Lake Michigan.
And the Asbury Park beach will get even better this June, as Demi Lovato, Brian Fallon, The Smithereens and The B52s all play in one jam-packed weekend June 14-17 at the Stone Pony. It’s part of North to Shore, Gov. Murphy’s first-ever tech/music festival planned to take place in Newark, Atlantic City and Asbury Park for the last three weekends in June.
So far, North to Shore performers booked include Halsey (she plays in Newark), Demi Lovato and MONSTA X (at the Stone Pony), Santana (he plays in Newark), the B52s (Stone Pony), Alanis Morissette with Aimee Mann (they play in Newark June 22), Bill Burr, Jay Wheeler, Stephen Colbert with Jim Gaffigan, Marisa Monte, Natalie Merchant, The Smithereens, Gavin DeGraw, Colbie Caillat, Brian Fallon and local Jersey Shore band Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes.

Writes Travel + Leisure of Asbury Park:
“A little bit rock ‘n’ roll, a little bit historic charm, this Jersey Shore destination has everything you want from a Northeastern summer spot. Stretching about a mile along New Jersey’s Atlantic coast, Asbury Park Beach is a lively, clean, white-sand paradise. Sunbathing, swimming, surfing, fishing, and people-watching are favorite activities here. It’s backed by a historic beachfront boardwalk bustling with restaurants, bars, fast food, and interesting shops, in addition to a splash park and miniature golf. The Silverball Retro Arcade boasts more than 600 working pinball machines dating back to the 1930s. And just across the street is the fabled bar, The Stone Pony, made famous by locals Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi.“
