Long Branch is conveniently located about one hour from New York City and northern New Jersey. It is a beautiful resort town with something for everyone, wide sandy beaches and an oceanfront promenade for jogging, strolling and enjoying a summer full of events.
Rise with the tide at Long Branch's new Wave Resort, a six-story, 67-room hotel with seven new restaurants and bars, an outdoor pool deck with fire pits, 180-degree beach views, onsite spa, fitness center and blow-dry bar. Also, a new carousel is galloping its way into Pier Village offering three rows deep with horses, sea turtles, porpoises, a sea horse, and two four-seat chariots for the little ones.
There is plenty to see and do in Long Branch year-round-from parades, antique shows, holiday events and great live theatre. And, of course, the annual Oceanfest, the biggest Independence Day celebration anywhere in New Jersey.
