Asbury Park

The roller coaster of up-and-down temperatures New Yorkers faced this spring is finally coming to an end. And with Memorial Day Weekend approaching, it's time to hit the beaches. Instead of catching sun rays in Central Park, visit and explore the pristine beaches the city and New Jersey have to offer.  From surfing to hiking to eating Nathan's Famous hot dogs, why stay in your apartment? Get your beach chairs ready, pack your umbrellas and coolers, and get to the shore early to beat the traffic.  See you there!
