Dog Days At Asbury Park Beach

Jersey Shore locals now get a chance to enjoy bringing our pooches to the beach. We know that in the Summer, most towns will not allow this, but now, you’re free to stroll along the water with your dog on its leash.

Of course, most towns define the “off-season,” with different start and end dates, so you’ll need to check their websites for more information. The Jersey Shore also has a few dedicated dog beaches, as well as coastal parks and refuges that will let your pooch come for a visit.
Here is a local favorite, not only because the beaches are wide and beautiful, but after your walk, you can meander into town for a bite at one of the many dog-friendly restaurants.
