If you are looking for a romantic place to stroll with the one you love, set your GPS for this Jersey shore town.
It turns out that the most romantic beach in New Jersey is not Asbury Park, or Ocean City, Spring Lake. It's not Ocean Grove, Point Pleasant or Avon, either. It turns out, according to a 2019 Trip Savvy article, the Garden State's most romantic beach is Atlantic City.
Hold on a minute. Atlantic City is a lot of things. It's exciting, it's amazing and it's fun. But the most romantic beach? I just don't know. And by the way, the article doesn't just make it the Garden State's number one. The article calls the AC beach the 4th most romantic in America.
An I missing something here? There are only 3 beaches in America more romantic than Atlantic City? Put Sanibel Island at #1 and I'm with you. Tell me Dewey Beach, Delaware at #2 and Malibu in the 3 spot and I'm still agreeing.
AC came in at #4. Hey, Atlantic City, don't get upset with me. I do love you. But you have to admit. Romantic, I mean we're talking among the most romantic in the country here? Even you have to admit. It's surprising, right?
