Best Local Getaway

Point Pleasant Park

You want to see some real joy in this town? Go for a stroll through Point Pleasant in early summer, when those spring puppies are just big enough to careen with a foolhardy gait through the underbrush, their paws just a little too big and their ears just a little too floppy. While Hurricane Juan’s touch, five years ago now, is still clear throughout the park, we humans can stroll down the multiple paths and enjoy the views of the water all around, while those fuzzy fellows splash through puddles and sniff each other’s bums to their little hearts’ content.
