This house is situated in Ocean Grove, NJ one of the Jersey Shore's finest year-round seaside resorts. Known as 'the Jewel of the Jersey Shore,' Ocean Grove has the highest concentration of authentic Victorian architecture in the country. This national historic treasure offers one square mile of natural beauty, including pristine beaches, tree-lined streets, serene boardwalk and parks, music & lecture programs, unique eateries, and a quaint shopping district.
Located along the beach, Ocean Grove is strategically situated at the geographic center of the Jersey Shore with Sandy Hook to the north and Atlantic City to the south, and all of the Shore's attractions within easy access. Only an hour’s drive from Manhattan (to the north) and 90 minutes from Philadelphia (to the south), Ocean Grove is a weekend, summer, and year-round destination for domestic and international travelers. Ocean Grove is also easily accessible by train and bus via New Jersey Transit.
Summertime in Ocean Grove is filled with arts and craft shows, giant flea markets, guided historical walking tours, house tours, performances by famous named artists at the legendary Great Auditorium and much more.
Having expanded into a town for all seasons, Ocean Grove now holds events year round to celebrate the uniqueness of this Victorian town, such as The Victorian House Tour in December, Chocolate Lovers Weekend in February, and the Garden State Film Festival in April.
A stroll along Main Avenue anytime of the year is a rich reminder of Victorian life with its many quaint gift shops and antique stores. The Ocean Grove Boardwalk connects to the Bradley Beach Boardwalk to the south and the beautiful and hopping Asbury Park Boardwalk to the north with its shops, restaurants, chic lounges, casual bars and other entertainment venues.
The Asbury Park Boardwalk and Cookman Avenue Shopping District host Summer Bonfires on the beach (Fridays in June, Wednesdays in July & August) and everyday amusements such as pinball at the Silverball Museum, a whimsical WaterPark for kids, a miniature golf course, and glass-blowing at Hot Sand. The music scene in Asbury Park also remains a staple for visitors. The famed Stone Pony which launched the careers of Bruce Springsteen and John Bon Jovi continues to be a sentimental favorite while Convention Hall, Wonder Bar, The Saint, Paramount Theatre and green spaces along the boardwalk play host to bands and other performers year-round. There is not a day that goes by without live music in Asbury Park.
Many guests at our house like to rent bicycles at the Ocean Grove Hardware Store on Main Avenue in Ocean Grove or at Brielle Cyclery on the Asbury Park Boardwalk. The area's flat terrain makes for easy riding for people of all ages.
