About Point Pleasant Beach
Step right up. Find a spot in the sun. Form your own special groove in the sand. Let the sun cloak your body in warmth. Relax and feel the magic of the Greater Point Pleasant Area!! These towns seem to offer something for everyone. Those seeking seaside recreation have a convenient, clean white beach where children build sandcastles along the breakers while their parents bask in the sunshine and cool salt-air breezes.
The downtown business districts invite shoppers to spend leisurely hours visiting the many unique shops; from antiques to yarn, these shops can satisfy any need with friendly and complete service. And if shopping builds up an appetite, the many fine restaurants, coffee shops and cafes can accommodate the most eclectic taste. But the fun does not end when the sun sets. At night, the local boardwalk pulsates with colorful lights, the cries of barkers, exiting rides whirling and twisting beneath the night sky, and the electronic blips and bleeps of the latest video games. From the doors of the bright nightclubs, notes from the latest song hits can be heard dancing into the night until they blend with the stars. Welcome to The Greater Point Pleasant Area!!

Think of the Greater Point Pleasant Area and you think of romance and mystery, beaches and moonlight, seascapes and first-rate entertainment. All these ingredients add to the recipe for fine dining at the shore. Yet, the most important ingredient for dining along the shore is the food itself, and one of the most sought-after commodities in local restaurants is seafood.

This area has long been known as a seafood lover's paradise, offering every type of marine delicacy. Who could pass up a large mouth-watering lobster that fills the plate; a flounder graced with lemon, its white meat falling from the bone; or tasty clams served with steaming broth and butter? And while seafood is naturally the best-known local fare, Shore restaurants offer enough variety to suit the most perspicacious palate.

What better way to enjoy a meal than with a panoramic view of the sweeping Atlantic horizon, as sunlight dances along miles of whitecaps? From dazzling waterfront views to Victorian charm, diners can find the proper mood for any occasion.

The Point Pleasant Area attracts thousands of visitors each year with its unique blend of seaside recreation and relaxation. It has become one of the Jersey Shore's most sought-after resorts, and a major reason is its choice accommodations. From bed and breakfast inns to elegant hotels, the Point Pleasant area offers visitors a chance to enjoy their stay in comfort and style. Those who wish to have a pleasant weekend, or simply enjoy a longer stay in quaint comfort, can find a number of Victorian bed and breakfast inns, where the traditional values of service and hospitality have never gone out of style.

Vacationers seeking larger facilities can choose from a number of hotels and motels. Many are located right on the beach, and a number offer fine dining, poolside relaxation and exciting nightlife.

And while all provide the finest comfort for sleep and relaxation, they also offer easy access to the Point Pleasant area's many amenities. Whatever the need, the Point Pleasant area can offer an accommodation that will make your vacation truly memorable.
