Monmouth County is the gateway to the Jersey Shore. Here you will find more than 50 miles of beaches, revolutionary history sites, nationally recognized parks and golf courses, dining experiences for all tastes and plenty of places to spend the night. 

It’s easy to get here. . . we are just a drive away from New York City and Pennsylvania and also accessible by bus, train and ferry.

Enjoy our rebuilt boardwalks that stretch out along the oceanfront, visit working lighthouses and stroll through delightful downtowns. Or, take in a horserace, cast a line in the sea, take in theater or a concert, visit a winery or an antique center.

Be sure to take in some great annual events - seafood festivals, jazz festivals, country fairs and movies
on the beach.
