New Jersey: Your Summer Travel Guide

Make the most of your time in NJ by exploring our top summer drop-off destinations down the shore. Whether it’s the hottest beach, bar, or concert venue, we’re sharing our top ride spots to make your summer travel a breeze.

1. Atlantic City

With all that Atlantic City has to offer, it’s no surprise it ranks as the number one Lyft destination at the Jersey Shore. Make sure to stop by Annette’s Restaurant for an unforgettable breakfast, or if you’re on the boardwalk, take a pitstop at the Hard Rock Cafe, AC.

2. Belmar

Known for the famous Bar A  and D’Jais, Belmar has a fun and exciting nightlife. Before the night rolls around, stop by Playa Bowls or Surf Taco for dinner. If you’re in Belmar on July 12, we highly recommend the Annual New Jersey Sandcastle Contest on Belmar Beach; it’s free to enter and the results are spectacular.

Additional top Belmar destinations include Boathouse Bar & Grill, 10th Ave Burrito Co, and P K's Shamrock Pub.

3. Seaside


You may remember Seaside from MTV’s The Jersey Shore. The boardwalk was rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy and is better than ever. Seaside is a great summer destination especially if you’re looking for family activities.

Additional Seaside destinations include Spicy Cantina, JR's Ocean Bar & Grill, and Bamboo Bar.

4. Asbury Park

Mark your calendars now, because you won’t want to miss these great annual events.

Additional top Asbury Park destinations include  Johnny Mac House of Spirits, Porta, and Asbury Ale House Sports Bar & Grille.

5. Wildwood

Home to nightlife, great food, a famous boardwalk, and museums, Wildwood has it all. Start your day with lunch at Crab & Seafood Shack, and follow up with Miss Chris Kayak & Paddleboard for some post-lunch exercise.

Other top Wildwood Destinations include Keenan's North Wildwood, Flip Flopz Beach Bar & Grill, and Westy's Irish Pub.

6. Point Pleasant

As soon as you set foot on the sandy beaches of Point Pleasant, you’ll feel like you’re far from home. The beautiful boardwalk and beach make Point Pleasant an ideal summer spot. Make sure to stop by Jenkinsons Pavilion to cool down with a frosty drink during a beach concert, and if you’re looking for a family-friendly or rainy day activity, head over to Jenk’s aquarium.
