Bordered by water on three sides, the Avon-by-the-Sea neighborhood lies 30 miles due east of Trenton and lures residents looking for a beachfront community. The entire east side of this neighborhood is a stretch of beach, ideal for sunbathing, swimming, beachcombing, and surfing. A boardwalk extends along the beach side of the neighborhood, as well. This historic neighborhood features a large number of early 20th-century homes, which enhances the beauty of this already charming neighborhood. If you want a rental with an ocean view, look along Ocean Avenue. Breathe the salty air as you take a stroll along the boardwalk, which spans the full length of the neighborhood’s eastern, oceanfront border. Then kick back and rest your feet at the Avon Pavilion. The pavilion features a boardwalk grille & ice cream parlor, a full-service restaurant overlooking the ocean, and two boutiques: the Avon Boutique and the Exit 98 Boutique.
