ASBURY PARK BOARDWALK
Asbury Park, New Jersey
If you're in love with beach pictures, but you want something a little bit different, something funky and fun, then Asbury Park Beach and Boardwalk is the place for you. Asbury Park offers wide open beaches, fun graffiti walls, and a rustic, seemingly abandoned boardwalk that just cannot be beat. Take a stroll on the boardwalk, smooch under the rustic gate, write your names in the sand, and even walk into the water if you dare.

Views on views. Frank Sinatra Park offers a view of the New York City skyline that just cannot be beat. But that's not all. Frank Sinatra Park is rich in photo-ops. From the Hoboken streets to wooded trails, Frank Sinatra Park has it all -- except for the beach, of course. A late day engagement shoot will provide perfect lighting and mood. Hoboken is the birth place of Frank Sinatra, and this park is dedicated to his memory. It's located on Pier A, at 1st Ave and Sinatra Drive, stretching out into the Hudson River.
