From the Marx Brothers to Lou Reed to Green Day, it seems that anybody who's anybody has played either Convention Hall or the Paramount Theater since the venues first opened in 1930. Located on the historic Asbury Park boardwalk and connected by a grand arcade, the two venues have characters all of their own. Convention Hall has a wood-floored ballroom that's great setting for harder rocking shows; the Paramount retains the warm feel of an elegant theater from a bygone era and hosts performers such as Reed and Levon Helm.

Places I've tried that are totally worth your time. From inexpensive boardwalk bagels, sandwiches and desserts to Asbury Park's Cookman Avenue and a great place to see shows.
