We have good reason to brag here at the Jersey Shore.

From one of our Ocean County communities being named as one of the most scenic on the East Coast, to a Jersey beach being named the best in America, we can now add world class accommodations to the list of honors.

Travel + Leisure Magazine recently put together a list of "The Best New Hotels In The World".

Let me emphasize something here - in the world.

We're not talking about the region.

We're not even talking about the country.

We're talking about the best on Earth.

That being said, the magazine not only singles out a new shore getaway, but puts it at the very top of the list.

So who gets this high honor?

A big congratulations goes out to The Asbury Hotel in Asbury Park!

Of the property, the magazine has the following to say:

This colorful property is Jersey’s hot new gathering spot. There’s an inviting lobby café and bright-yellow pool chairs to lounge on during the day; at night, options include outdoor movies and a packed rooftop bar.

It's just another reason for us locals to hang our hats proudly here at the shore.

We not only have some of the best in the region, not only some of the best in the country, but now among the best in the world!
