A long-time popular destination for shore fun, sun, and surfing, the town of Long Branch in New Jersey was once referred to as the “Hollywood of the East,” a place where the greatest performers of the nineteenth century gathered and performed and a place where quite a number of famous people spent time along the Jersey Shore, including several United States presidents. The town today attracts visitors with its outdoor activities at the Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park, the luxury Pier Village community area, theatrical performances at the New Jersey Repertory Company, and more. Hours/availability may have changed.
