The ultimate summer night involves being outdoors with a picnic listening to live music. No matter where you are in New Jersey, there is always a music festival or outdoor concert nearby, but nothing is better than a concert down the shore! Take a trip to the Asbury Park boardwalk and visit Bruce Springsteen’s old stomping grounds. The Stone Pony features bands of all genres. You don’t even have to go in; you can hear the music while sitting on the beach. Not your scene? How about a light jazz performance? Pier Village in Long Branch is a beautiful boardwalk that has tons of waterfront restaurants and shops. It is the perfect place for a relaxing night on the beach, equipped with a drink in hand and live jazz or soft acoustic music to please your ears.
