About Ocean Grove

Ocean Grove was originally founded in 1869, by a group of Methodist clergymen. Despite only being one-mile square in size, it attracts visitors from all over the world every year (including U.S presidents and iconic celebrities!).

When visiting the resort, you'll be amazed by the spectacular architecture and gorgeous beaches within the resort. Now registered as a historical national district, Ocean Grove contains the most Victorian architecture in the U.S.

What to do

The beach in Ocean Grove is one of the best in the entire region. As this town isn't an overly-busy destination, you'll be sure to find a spot of peace and quiet to soak up the sun.

During the summer months, the beach even holds its own events such as a sandcastle competition, kite flying contests and a volleyball tournament. So, whether you decide to come as a couple or a large family, there's something for everyone to get involved with.

To gain a cultural perspective of the quaint little town, why not take a browse through some of the museums in the area? You could take a trip to the Main Avenue Galleria where you'll be able to browse through the work of local artists, or make a visit to the Historical Society of Ocean Grove to find out more about the town and its colorful past.

Top Ocean Grove travel tips

To gain access to the beach, you'll need to purchase a day pass, at approximately $8 which can be purchased from the beach office. Children under the age of 12 are free. If you get to the beach early in the morning, you may be able to grab a free parking spot.

It's perfectly fine to get around the town by foot, but if you have trouble with that, your best option is to drive as there isn't much internal public transport available. You can get bus and rail links to New York from Ocean Grove by MJ Transit and Academy Bus.
