What to do in an afternoon in Asbury Park, including dinner

Jump to last reply

We are leaving for NJ today and will be going to see a show at Carousel on the Boardwalk tomorrow night, Saturday. We will be picking my son up who lives in Queens and will also be with my 83 year old very fit mother in law, as long as it isn't high humidity. We pretty much will have from noon on to figure out how to spend the day.

I read on Fodors a mention of Island Beach State Park about 30 minutes from Asbury Park. That sounds wonderful but if the weather is an issue that might not work out. Do you have any suggestions of what might be nice to see and do while we are there? If there isn't really anything but the beach and boardwalk and maybe some shopping then we could always spend most of the day in NYC instead and just go late in the afternoon for dinner and theatre. I would prefer to take in some of NJ; we will be seeing a matinee in the city on Sunday.

Also, I would love a dinner suggestion. My Mother In law doesn't like really spicy foods but besides that open to ideas. Should I plan to eat on the boardwalk? We also want to keep it around $20 per person.

What do you know about Siciliana's on the boardwalk? They have a discount with restaurant.com and it gets great reviews on Trip Advisor. By the pictures on their website it looks more like a pizza/sub shop but I know they have meals as well. We are actually staying overnight in Neptune. Thanks so much! I just want to plan a great time for my Mother in law. Who knows if she will ever get to do a trip like this again.
