A Quick Drive:

We would also like to share some of our favorite beach, shopping, and dinning locations just a quick drive away!

  • Red Bank is just miles from the Jersey Shore. Although many areas of the Jersey Shore have been damaged as a result of Hurricane Sandy, both Seven Presidents Beach and Pier Village Restaurant and Shopping Village, which is located on the beach weathered the storm. (8 miles; ~20 minute drive)
  • Pier Village is located along the Jersey Shore, just 8 miles (~20 minutes) from the conference location. Along with a beachfront boardwalk, it hosts a number of specialty boutiques and restaurants. A full list of stores and restaurants, along with their hours, are available on the Pier Village website.
  • If you love Rock and Roll, then you will want to check out The Stony Pony, a local concert venue in Asbury Park, NJ just 12 miles from the conference location. This is where local favorite Bruce Springsteen got his start!
  • About 15 minutes from the conference location is the Monmouth Mall. This mall has department stores, specialty stores, hair and nail salons, and a food court. For a complete store listing, visit their website. There are a number of dining establishments next to the Monmouth Mall, such as Bobby’s Burger Palace, Chili’s Bar and Grill, T.G.I. Fridays, Joes Crab Shack, and Buffalo Wild Wings, as well as an AMC theater.
