Point Pleasant Beach

Prior to European colonization, this coastal area was home to the native Lenape people. The Point Pleasant Beach area was first noticed by European colonists in the early 1600s when Henry Hudson's famed expedition passed through the area. However, white settlers did not officially settle in this area until the next century, when farmers began to establish homesteads. Point Pleasant's tourist industry followed soon after with the opening of the first boarding house in the early 1800s. The Borough of Point Pleasant Beach was formally established at the end of that century, marking the town's official beginning.

The festival is focused on seafood, with local restaurants serving up items like lobster bisque and crab cakes.
