For a lower-key Jersey Shore experience, try Keansburg. The public beach doesn't have lifeguards on duty, but the sand is powdery white and the sunsets are stunning. So blast some early-period Springsteen(headphones, please) and chill.
Not everything here is sleepy. Thrill-seekers and families regularly flock to the Keansburg Amusement Park for dozens of waterslides, including the notorious and frankly stomach-churning Super Slide. There are also family arcade centers and an abundance of tasty boardwalk treats—funnel cake, anyone? (Just not after the Super Slide.)
Like Atlantic City, Keansburg is also slowly recovering from Hurricane Sandy. Today, home prices are among the cheapest on the Jersey Shore—you could find a decent home a stone's throw away from the beach for around $150,000.
And things are looking up for developments. Last year, a $65 million, mixed-use project broke ground on the waterfront. Expected to be completed by summer 2018, the complex will feature two stories of retail space, together with a collection of market-rate and affordable apartments.
