Things to do

Soaking up culture and sun in Ocean Grove

Once you've toasted yourself to a nice, golden brown, you can soak up local culture at the Centennial Cottage, a "living history" museum in a Swiss Chalet-style building from the 1880s. Here, you'll learn about the town's beginnings as a Camp Meeting _ sort of like an all-ages Protestant summer camp _ and see how the town's congregation lived during the 19th century. Families can enjoy the rides, games, and entertainment at the nearby Asbury Park Boardwalk _ or you can catch a live organ performance at the Great Auditorium, home to 1 of the world's largest pipe organs.

Activities

It's all about that beach in Ocean Grove

It's not for nothing that the town's called Ocean Grove, and you'll want to make as much time as you can for sunbathing along the Atlantic coast. A quieter take on the Jersey Shore, you'll find nearly a mile of sandy beach, as well as regular kite flying and sandcastle competitions, and enough beach volleyball to put the cast of "Top Gun" to shame. Later, you can explore the shops and cafes of Downtown Ocean Grove, or hit up the tennis and shuffleboard courts at the lakefront Ocean Grove Park.

Weather

The season is the reason in Ocean Grove

Ocean Grove's climate is humid continental, which means warm, damp summers and cool winters, with regular wet stuff throughout the year.

Spring and fall are decidedly crisp, and winters are mild, with average highs in the 40s from December through February.
