There it is right in the middle of history. It sits at the front end of the legendary Convention Hall building and just across from the historic Berkeley Hotel. If the walls of the Paramount Theatre could talk, it would sound like a combination of a walk down memory lane and a history lesson. Do you think you know all there is to know about the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park? Bet you don't.

This incredible venue is over 90 years old and began it's existence in one of the hottest entertainment hubs in the country, so it's little surprise that the Paramount Theatre has some amazing history to share.

This week, the Paramount Theatre celebrated the 91st anniversary of its opening, which took place on July 11, 1930, according to Cinema Treasures, and a grand history was about to begin.

How historic is it? It's so historic that it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places back in 1979.

How about some of the historical performers who have graced the Paramount theatre stage. We all know Bruce Springsteen has been there but how about taking it way back and throwing Johnny Cash and The Marx Brothers into that conversation?

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. So the next time you are walking the Asbury Park Boardwalk, or driving by these majestic buildings, just take a minute to absorb the magnitude of the history that happened there. It's just another reason to love Asbury Park even more.

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
