Bar
“Definitely a secret spot known only to Monmouth County locals, Boyle's Tavern has been in business for years. Great place to walk to for a quick drink when you're bored and restless at night. Not such great prospects for the pick-up scene, though.”

Grocery or Supermarket
“Also known locally as "Monmouth Mart", this supermarket has been a staple of Monmouth Beach for decades. It's definitely a bit expensive, but that's the price you pay for the convenience.”

“Free beach next door. You can't visit exclusive Monmouth Beach Club without a member bringing you as their guest BUT you can visit the Free Public Access Beach to the Right of the club. Park on the street. The Sand and Waves are just as swanky as at the club ”

Park
“Close by! Paved path around the park. Several fields, tennis courts, and basketball courts. The path also has a few "fitness trail" stations. There's also a playground for small children, bathrooms, and a food stand.”
