Reader Mail: Good NJ Beaches?
Today we have 411 reader “Old Hickory” wondering what you think a good “day trip” beach is in NJ.
I for one, like to go to Asbury Park for day trips, because the beaches are usually very sparsely populated, and it’s rather close to Hoboken. No “riff raff”. Spring Lake is nice too, just a bit further.
See what he has to say below. What are your recommendations for a simple day trip with a youngster?
I’ve lived in Hoboken for over a little over a year but haven’t yet been to any beaches here in Jersey. We’re planning on hitting the beach for the day in mid-August and was hoping to get recommendations for nearby beaches that would be suitable for a day-trip.
We’re not really beach people but our daughter just is a year and a half and has never been to the beach so we’re thinking it will be a fun (if not different) experience for her. Proximity is the most important because we’re going on a Sunday and don’t want to get caught up in bad traffic on the way back or spend hours in the car. Other than that, a simple beach where we can park and hang out for a couple of hours.”
