Long Branch, New Jersey has a long history as a resort town for vacationing locals and even presidents. Surf, sun, and sand are still the order of the day around this area of Jersey Shore. It was affected by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, but things have been rebuilt and it's business as usual nowadays in Long Branch.
Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park is named for the presidents who used to spend their summers here. Here you'll find 38 acres of boardwalk, beach and areas to swim, fish and play volleyball.
A trip here doesn’t have to be costly, although there are some high class restaurants and expensive nightclubs as well as the Victorian inspired community of Pier Village where you can browse the shops and always find something delicious to eat.
You can also take advantage of the free summer concerts, listen to music under the stars, and enjoy the warm summer nights.
Best time to visit is summer for making the most of the beach fun.
