Spring Lake, New Jersey - A Visitors Guide

Spring Lake, New Jersey

Spring Lake, affectionately referred to as the "Irish Riviera", is a small beach resort town with huge Victorian houses, manicured lawns, tree-lined streets, flower filled parks, and a well managed beach that's never been corrupted by honky tonk.

In the mid 1800's, Spring Lake was a summer getaway for well healed leaders of industry, and up until today, this small community has retained much of the exclusive atmosphere of that era.

It is possible to wander around this beach front community, even in peak summer season, and see very few people and almost no traffic. In the fall, the town reverts to its year-round population of less than 4,000 people and becomes even more tranquil.
