I love to shop! A perfect day shopping for me is a variety of merchandise in one convenient location, plenty of parking, good prices, clean stores, outside music playing, a cup of coffee in one hand, and the other hand scanning through racks. This is what your asbury avenue shopping experience will be like. Asbury Ave. has the best shopping in Ocean City NJ. You can grab a cup of coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks or OC Coffee house and start your stroll down the avenue.

Most of the shopping happens from 14th street to 6th street. There are boutiques, (Sun Seekers, Tadah, Colette) to name a few. There are several Tadah locations and each is a great spot to pick up inexpensive accessories under $7.00; like earrings, bracelets, watches, and necklaces. There are surf shops, furniture stores, a pet store, a home made soap store, an Irish store, B & B Department Store, Hallmark, and so much more. One of my favorite spots is inside Stations, in the middle of the block on 8-9th street. It is a large variety store that has collectibles, unique gifts, clothing, hats, jewelry and a bunch more. It is a must stop and shop spot!

There are numerous eating places along the avenue as well. When you need to rest and refuel for lunch, I recommend Jon and Patty’s on 6th street or Ready’s Coffee shop. Food is fresh and reasonably priced.

Another really nice touch, is the outside music playing through speakers along the avenue and beautiful flowers are planted all around the shopping area. I have been to many “downtown shopping” areas that were disappointing and fell short on excitement. Ocean City’s Asbury Avenue will not disappoint. So come out and let the sun hit your face while enjoying a great shopping day on asbury avenue.
