Spark’s 2019 Visit Monmouth Guide will assist you in planning your
trip and give you a taste of the destinations, attractions and events
that make the area special. We’re here to help you make sense of
the strip along the Atlantic Ocean that we happily call home, and
we hope the guide will make you feel welcome. You’ll find sections
on a variety of activities and interest areas. Check the On the Town
section for information organized by location. The Events pages
include groupings of events by category as well as a yearlong
event calendar. Get your bearings with a map of all the towns,
including county, state and federal parks as well as major roads
and waterways. Map coordinates used throughout the guide will
help you locate destinations. Enjoy your stay!
Monmouth County is the heart of the Jersey Shore, and we

beaches, fleets of charter and party boats, boardwalks,
waterside dining, amusement parks and award-winning golf
courses, plus a calendar filled with fireworks, farmers’ markets,
outdoor concerts and food and entertainment events. But
Monmouth County offers much more than just a great summer
vacation. Come shop our downtowns, shopping centers and
antique centers. Bring your friends to enjoy a night out and a
delicious meal in any of our acclaimed restaurants. Spend a
romantic weekend in one of our charming B&Bs. Catch your
favorite performer at one of our many clubs and nightspots.
Take in a show at a local theater. Dig your toes in the sand.
