Sitting pretty on the shore and the banks of the South Shrewsbury River, Long Branch, NJ is a pawfect destination for you and your pooch! The beachside city has been making waves as a resort town since the late eighteenth century, and visitors both humble and distinguished have been coming here for generations -- including no fewer than seven US presidents! The area is still popular with tourists, and thousands flock here every summer to escape the NYC heat. That’s not all the town has to offer, though -- Long Branch is a family-friendly, thriving, and diverse town with a strong community spirit, full of locally owned shops, delis, and restaurants.

Long Branch doesn’t have its own dog park, but you two are still "shore" to sniff out something to do! No visit to Long Branch would be complete without a visit to the beach, but you and your buddy are only welcome in the off-season, and they’ll have to stay on leash. Never mind, though; there are some furrific dog beaches just a short drive away! You’ll also find a couple of community parks ideal for leashed walks, as well as plenty of doggy dining options. And if your furry friend needs to run free, don’t fret -- you’ll find plenty of off-leash adventure options in the surrounding area!

    Seven Presidents Open Front Park welcomes wagging tails with open arms -- but officially, only during the off-season. Still, if you and your buddy find yourself in the area in spring or fall, the park is a real mutts-visit! The beach is beautiful, the grassy areas are wide open and well-maintained, and there are plenty of facilities for non-furry family members, from playgrounds to skate parks. Remember to bring your own waste bags and water, and it’s a good idea to get there early, as parking fills up fast. Dogs must remain leashed at all times in this park.

    You and your pooch won’t be long looking for somewhere to chow down in Long Branch! The city’s West End neighborhood in particular is a haven for doggy diners. For fresh fish tacos, check out Surf Taco -- your buddy is welcome to join you at one of their outdoor tables. Or for a quick bite, stop in at Bagel Guys -- their breakfast sandwich is excellent, and they cater to canines outside. A special mention, though, has to go to Richard’s Deli! This furrific local gem does one of the best breakfasts in town, and they allow dogs in their covered sunroom, so you two can dine come rain or shine!

    Wolf Hill Dog Park is just on the border of Long Branch and Oceanport, so it’d be a huge faux paw not to sniff it out! This park is a pup’s paradise -- there’s plenty of room for even the most rambunctious pooches to leap about to their hearts' content. There’s also a separate small dog area, so your pup can play and socialize no matter their size! Tired owners might also appreciate the ample seating. Waste bags are provided, but there’s no water fountain, so you’ll need to bring your own bottle. You and Fido will pawsitively love this park!

    You’d need to be barking mad not to bring your pooch to Asbury Park! Best known as the launching point of Bruce Springsteen’s career, the north of the town is home to one of New Jersey’s best off-leash dog beaches! The 8th Ave Dog Beach is a pawfect spot for furry friends who were born to run, and pups who like swimming are sure to have a whale of a time splashing about in the shallow waters. Free-roaming fur balls are allowed on the beach from 6 pm throughout the year. As an added bonus, there’s plenty of parking!

    Like Long Branch, Asbury Park has its fair share of fur-friendly eateries, but Wonder Bar on Ocean Ave is a seriously special spot. On Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, Wonder Bar hosts their famous Yappy Hour, when you can slake your thirst while your pooch plays off-leash! Wonder Bar doesn’t just have an off-leash play area, though -- you’ll also find swimming pools for a doggy paddle and a separate fenced area for pups who need a little time to get used to a new environment. Monday night is for small dogs only, but furry friends of all shapes and sizes are welcome on the weekend.
