Pt. Pleasant Beach Must Visit

Well, the secret is out. Kind of.

The lifestyle website The Discoverer dropped its list of the “7 Beach Towns You Must Visit.” A very popular Jersey Shore destination made the list.

I’d like to say that I’m not surprised, but I kind of am.

Jersey and Jersey beaches, in particular, are often underrated and get a bad rap for being dirty or unappealing.

As we all know, nothing could be further from the truth.

The Discoverer said:

While there’s nothing wrong with dreaming of a luxurious international vacay, you may be surprised to find that you don’t have to leave the continental United States in order to enjoy cute beach towns.

Before we start bragging about the Jersey Shore, here are some of the other beaches that were part of the select seven.

If you want to explore a really cool beach that’s not too far away from Jersey, Block Island is a fine choice.

The town of Block Island is small and intimate and features a ton of bed and breakfasts and little shops.

It’s almost like a northeast version of Cape May.

Here’s another really unique east coast beach that was chosen by The Discoverer as a must-visit.

This beach is a favorite among nature lovers and is known for its wild ponies that roam the sand.

A quick trip out to the west coast. This is the view from Ocean View Boulevard in Pacific Grove, California. The town is home to Point Pinos Lighthouse, the oldest on the west coast.

Now it’s time to brag.

One of the “7 Beach Towns You Must Visit” that is getting national buzz is…

In my opinion, The Discoverer nailed this one. Here’s what they had to say.

If you’re seeking east coast boardwalk vibes, sans intense crowds, head to this low-key New Jersey beach town. Ideal for families, this enclave — which is situated on a white-sand beach—features art festivals, sidewalk sales, and lots of small businesses to explore. Hit the boardwalk to enjoy amusement park rides, an aquarium, and plenty of oceanside restaurants.

What else is there to say?

There’s a reason this is a common site in Pt. Pleasant Beach during the summertime.

Should I feel bad that a whole bunch of people just learned about “our little secret?”

Pt. Pleasant Beach Must be on here. LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.

Very Well Respected Travel Site Names New Jersey’s Best Beach

There is always going to be a debate when you try to name the best beach in a state that is so proud of every one of its beaches. That apparently does not stop us from trying.

There are a thousand different opinions on this topic, and every one of them has truth to it, so even though there are many answers to this question, it’s hard to believe there is just one right answer.

When a major publication like Travel Channel throws its opinion into the mix, it does carry some extra weight. They do know a thing or two about the topic.

Even though naming New Jersey’s best beach is a daunting task, they took it on, and they do have a winner.

Google Maps

Stone Harbor, NJ (Google Maps)

They have chosen the beautiful beach at Stone Harbor as the best one in the state. Let the debate begin.

The site raves about the activities in town and its family-friendliness, which is all true. But isn’t it also true about a dozen other great Jersey Shore beaches?

Of course, it is. The fact of the matter is picking one New Jersey beach as the best in the state is like choosing one ravioli in the bowl as your all-time favorite. There really are no right or wrong answers.

Lou Russo

Point Pleasant Beach, NJ (Lou Russo)

Is the correct answer Stone Harbor? Yes. Is the right answer Sandy Hook? It is. Is Point Pleasant Beach the beach you can’t miss? Absolutely. You get my point, right?

I know we’ll argue over which is the best beach in New Jersey, but it’s fine to think your favorite is the best. After all, this is a nice problem to have.

American couple travel to Jersey to take part in Durrell Challenge – after mistaking it for New Jersey

AN American couple have been on an unexpected Island adventure – after signing up for a fundraising run that they initially thought was in New Jersey.

Kandy Salazar and her husband, Nick Garcia, travelled to the Island to take part in the 13k Durrell Challenge last weekend.

They decided to take part after a colleague at Delta Air Lines told Kandy about the race and she thought it sounded fun.

‘He was going to go over to do it and I thought I would too. We live in the mid-west and I assumed it was New Jersey – he didn’t mention that it wasn’t and did nothing to correct me,’ she said.

Kandy (44) started training, but a few weeks later her colleague said he could no longer make the trip. However, she decided to continue and persuaded her husband to take part too. But Kandy was shocked when she saw the registration form.

‘I saw the map and a lot of ocean, and I thought where is this? But by then I was emotionally invested in the trip and I didn’t tell Nick about the mistake right away – I waited a few weeks. But here we are and we’re so glad we came,’ she said.

Nick (43), who works for a transportation company, admitted finding out it was the ‘wrong’ Jersey was ‘absolutely a surprise’.

He added: ‘She didn’t let me know specifically where it was right away and let me believe it was a mistake. I only found out a couple of weeks before we came,’ said Nick.

The couple are based in Cincinnati, Idaho, and had to fly to Salt Lake City before catching a flight to the UK – a journey of around 16 hours. Had the race been in New Jersey, it would have meant a two-hour flight.

The pair completed the race only ten seconds apart, in just over 90 minutes – in spite of the hilly course.

The couple – who have been staying at De L’Etang at Havre Des Pas – are flying back home today, and have been delighted with their trip. And now they know where Jersey is, they plan to come back next year.

Kandy said: ‘We’ve enjoyed it so much and now we’ll be ready for next year. Hopefully next time we’ll have a few more days to spend here.’

Road Trip! Visit New Jersey’s Top 10 Cozy Small Towns

 

New Jersey is a small state, but New Jersey is a bustling and populated state. It is nice to take time and point out some of our cozy and quiet locations. Worldatlas came out with a list highlighting the Top 10 Charming Towns here in the Garden State.

 

 

Very often people, especially from out of state, only look at New Jersey and its very busy sections. They forget about our beautiful beaches, our tranquil forests, and our cozy towns. Living here my whole life I know New Jersey has some of the most beautiful sections of America right here in our little state. I don’t buy into the comics and their “New Jersey is a dump” mentality. How often on late-night tv do the so-called comedians take jabs at Jersey, meanwhile the places they call home are in ruins. I’ll take Jersey any day.

Let’s take a look at a Worldatlas article and their choices for top cozy towns.

Cape May County

Hunterdon County

This New Jersey Beach Ranked As A Must Visit Location In The Country

Of course, we’re biased when we hype up the Jersey Shore to people who aren’t from the area, but apparently other people are understanding the hype about New Jersey too.

A list of the 150 best things to do in the United States this summer came out from TravelLemming.com and Asbury Park made the list.

I feel almost like a proud mom that New Jersey is getting the recognition of being one of the best places to visit in the entire country.

 

Out of all of the places in the entire country, our very own Asbury Park ranked number 53 on the list, which is a great place to be sitting considering there are not only 150 places listed, but the entire country was taken into account when making this list.

I will back this article up and give you just a few of the reasons why Asbury Park should be one of your summer stops this year.

The Stone Pony alone is a huge reason why people need to make a trip down there. The Stone Pony is just an iconic venue that’s housed huge artists like Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi.

Asbury is also full of amazing restaurants and bars that can keep you busy for hours.

Places like Johnny Macs, Asbury Ale House, and Wonder Bar have people come from not only all over New Jersey but apparently from all over the country.

 

The number one place to visit in the entire country, according to this list is “Peer into the Universe at Lowell Observatory” in Arizona. You can check out the entire list of 150 must-see places in the country here.
