Long Branch is many places in one…. great dining, chic boutiques, outdoor recreation and relaxation, wide open private and public beaches, art, music, theatre and unique bars. Whether you are a weekend or seasonal visitor or just looking for a second home, there is something for everyone. A popular destination for visitors and locals alike is Pier Village, with its dazzling array of restaurants, shops and bars as well as a lively nightlife for the young and hip – or the young at heart!
