The Borough of Bradley Beach has everything a year round, seasonal resident or visitor could want in a shore town.
From its beautiful wide beaches to its unique beachfront pavered promenade, it’s a wonderful place to live or vacation.
The promenade, built after the nor’easter of 1992, is the site of many town festivals including its popular Memorial Day weekend vendor fair and food festival.
This special weekend includes the Memorial Day Parade complete with area high school bands, cheer squads, dance schools, Mummers from Pennsylvania, and an authentic Ragtime Band.
This one square mile walking town also has a thriving Main Street with shops, restaurants and bars.
Getting to Bradley Beach couldn’t be easier from the main arteries, the Garden State Parkway, Turnpike, Route 195 or Route 18.
