Hi, hope you can help. We're a family of 4 from the UK (boys 15 & 17) on a 3 week road trip across 10 states! Having spent a few days in NY late July, we're picking up our hire car in the morning from Newark Airport, heading towards Toms River. I thought a break at the coast would break up the travelling and allow us walk the boardwalk and maybe sit on the beach for an hour or so. I was thinking Jenkinsons Boardwalk near Point Pleasant? Island Beach State Park looks nice too, but is a bit further down and will possibly be full by the time we get there mid-late afternoon (we travel on a Friday). What are your thoughts on Seaside Heights or Manasquan? We're off to Six Flags the next day, so not especially worried about thrills, and will just have had the buzz of NY, so really looking for somewhere to chill for a few hours. Also, somewhere that is easy to park up and safe to leave our suitcases in the car! Thanks in advance!
