"Budget Travel magazine recently named Asbury Park the "coolest small town" in America.

"We love Asbury Park’s cultural diversity, welcoming vibe, and year-round calendar of events: Fourth of July fireworks, Oysterfest, Zombie Walk, and so much more," the magazine said, in an article posted on its website.

"It's one heck of a recognition," said Asbury Park Mayor John Moor, who said his great-grandfather first moved to the shore community in 1888.

"It's a community-wide-recognition and really a great choice," Moor said. "It's really the residents, the businesses, everyone that made this happen."

More than a million visitors came to Asbury Park last year, according to the Asbury Park Chamber of Commerce. The city has a population of just under 16,000. It is about 1.6 square miles."... image of Asbury Park Boardwalk from Asbury Park Press

Editor's note: Jersey Shore summers and baseball are connected. My brother brought a small radio to the beach and tuned to the Yankee radio broadcast. That's how I first heard John Sterling's voice. He's been doing Yankee play by play since 1989. NYC AM radio stations that have carried the Yankees reach the Jersey shore pretty well.
