Another publication is kicking off the summer by singing the praises of the beautiful beach in Asbury Park.

The Asbury Park beach has quickly become a crowd favorite for local and tourists alike, so when Thrillist listed the best beaches in New Jersey, it was no surprise that Asbury Park landed near the top.

It wasn't a complete win for the Asbury Park beach, however, as Cape May was listed as number one, but there was Asbury Park in a solid second place among all beaches in the Garden State.

And Asbury Park wasn't the only local beach to do great in this report. The gorgeous beach in Spring Lake was ranked #4, LBI was #5, and Point Pleasant Beach was ranked at #7.

There were other area beaches that made the top 10, including Seaside Heights at 8, Ocean Grove coming in at the #9 spot, and Long Branch at #10, so all in all, Monmouth & Ocean Counties did great.

So get ready for another big beach season, and let's all take a minute to appreciate just how lucky we are living around all this summertime awesomeness!
