When it comes to places to live, work, eat, and play, we have some of the best right here at the Jersey Shore.

One town has even been named by one magazine as the #3 best small town in the country! So where is it?

Smithsonian Magazine chose Red Bank!

One of my favorite places at the Jersey Shore, Red Bank has something for everyone.

There's a great music scene at places like The Downtown and Jamian's where you can check out local music acts of all kinds. Of course the history of music in Red Bank is legendary thanks to the one and only Count Basie.

The shopping is varied and fabulous from high-end places like Garmany and Coco Pari to chains like Urban Outfitters to one of my favorites: Jack's Music Shoppe.

Into theater and shows? Two River Theatre Company and Count Basie Theatre offer amazing entertainment from plays to comedians to concerts and more!

Love the water? Stop by the riverfront, hang out and watch the boats, or take out your own!

And you know I love restaurants, when it comes to amazing places to dine, Red Bank has MORE than its fair share. Dish, Pazzo, Buona Sera, Teak, Basil T's, Melting Pot, Danny's...there's too many to mention!

And for a fun night out with friends, you HAVE to hit Dublin House or Walt St. Pub and then pop into Broadway Diner on Monmouth St for a late night snack.

On a nice day, there's nothing better than a stroll down Broad Street.

What's not to love? If you haven't checked out Red Bank, or it's just been a while, I highly recommend it. Take the Parkway to Exit 109 or hop on 35 and you're there.

With tons of cool events like the International Flavour Festival and the Art Walk coming up, it's a perfect time to go!
