Pack your bags, get your besties, and peep our tips on making Asbury 305 again!

Head to the beach-each, just to get away

The perfect beach day awaits you when you get to AP. Some of the nicest beaches along the shore are at Asbury Park and on a sunny weekend, it’ll be the best time to layout and get your tan on.


Cash the sunset outside at...howbowdah?

When you’re all sunned out, grab a drink and dance at The Beach Bar. On the weekends, the DJs will be spinning on the wraparound deck, so bust out a grapevine with your margarita in hand.

Also, wait for sunset to catch a gorgeous view of where the sky meets the water.



Grab a bite on Cookman Ave

When you’re done with the beach, head to downtown at Cookman Ave and get some food and drinks at some of the best restaurants in town, including Mogo and Taka.


Keep it divey

Sometimes all you need is good music and cheap drinks. Don't miss out on Brickwall Tavern and Johnny Mac.


Never seen a ceiling in your whole life

No ceiling, no problem? Head to the roof of the Asbury Hotel for one of the best views of the beach town. Get a cocktail and lounge with your crew, taking in the views of the beach.
