Destination / Wish You Were Here

Greetings from Asbury Park, New Jersey

As the wizards play down on Pinball Way on the boardwalk way past dark, and the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open like Latin lovers on the shore.

Asbury Park is Bruce Springsteen’s town. The beach destination located 90 minutes south of New York is also a favourite among surfers and holidaymakers in search of golden sands, a salty sea breeze and a steady selection of cafes, shops, bars and restaurants. Here is our edit of the must-visit locations in the seaside city with its glittering rock ‘n’ roll past.
