The Asbury, New Jersey, USA; Although most summer getaways for New Yorkers entail trips up the Hudson River or out towards the Hamptons, The Asbury is making a strong case for luring visitors to New Jersey’s Shore, just a little over an hour outside New York City. As Asbury Park’s first hotel in over 50 years, the 110-room property is a fun-filled epitome of casual seaside charm.
