Situated just a few steps from Sea Girt, Spring Lake Beach is a 2-mile long pristine beach that features one of the longest boardwalks in the state of New Jersey. The good news is that parking is free, but make sure to arrive early as the number of parking spots is limited. The bad news is entrance to the beach costs $8!
In the afternoon, check out one of the most sophisticated towns in the region, Spring Lake. This quaint town was a popular vacation spot for New York’s wealthiest people back in the 19th century. Today, Spring Lake is filled with great restaurants, ice cream parlors, and local candy shops.
Keep in mind that bringing food, alcohol, and coolers to Spring Lake Beach is strictly forbidden.
