If you are trying to plan a trip to the Jersey Shore this summer, there are plenty of options. One of the liveliest beach towns is also one of the closest to the city and northern NJ—Long Branch. This little city by the sea offers a wide variety of attractions to people looking to soak up the sun from luxurious spas to raucous concert venues. Let’s take a look at what you can do in Long Branch this summer.

Pier Village

This is the center of the action in Long Branch during the summer months. Shops and restaurants line the avenue and allow you to do things like enjoy some ice cream, do morning yoga overlooking the beach, or even indulge in a rejuvenating spa experience. There are free weekly concerts every Thursday evening and you can bring the family to enjoy free movies on the beach every Sunday night. Check out what’s going on in Pier Village this week!

Brighton Bar

If you’re looking for something with a little more edge for your getaway, then there’s always the classic rock club, Brighton Bar. This club focuses on providing up-and-coming local bands a chance to showcase their acts alongside veterans of the punk and rock communities. Check their events page to see who’ll be stopping by for a set this summer.

Escape the Puzzle

Sometimes it rains, even at the Jersey Shore, or if you just need a break from the sun, this is the place to go. You and your friends will be challenged to figure out the puzzles necessary to escape the room in less than an hour. This is better than catching a movie because you will be fully immersed in the story and have to rely on your wits to be successful. Escape the Puzzle is located right in Long Branch so you don’t have to travel far to try something new!
