The Beach: Any stay in the area should come with a visit to the beach. On a clear day you can see the NYC skyline from the water. There are plenty of public beach options within Sea Bright, although your best bet is to stay somewhere with beach access if you can swing it.
Crazees: "The BEST place in the entire world!" - Samantha Clifford. A delicious ice cream shop just down the street from where Sam grew up and across the street from the Rumson Presbyterian Church. Stop by for a cookie dough sugar cone before the festivities!
Lighthouse: Delicious Italian ice right by the ocean in neighboring Long Branch. Troy recommends Pina Colada. Sam recommends anything involving a swirl with chocolate.
Woody's: Fun, laid back bar/restaurant in downtown Sea Bright. If you want to get a taste of one of Troy's last boys trips (Ocean City, MD) before he met Sam, order a couple Orange Crushes at the bar and do your best people-watching.
Brennan's: The best sandwich place in the area and one of Sam's former places of employment. Order the #18 or #26 and ask the staff about the time that Sam and Goose locked their boss in the walk-in refrigerator.
Surf Taco: A cozy taco spot right in the heart of Red Bank. A good spot to refuel after a long day on the beach...or after a long train ride from NYC.
Rook Coffee: Named one of the best coffee chains in the United States by multiple publications. Get the New Orleans Style!!
