    Brielle Reviews

    I live in a beach town about 60 miles south of Manhattan. It's a tourist spot in the summer so it gets crazy here. We have both mom and pop stores in a quaint downtown or we have the big chain stores available. While it feels really suburban, it's really not. People around here wouldn't tolerate not having access to the newest gadgets and technologies so we definitely have got everything at our finger-tips. The best part is, though, that we still have these great mom and pop stores and restaurants that make the freshest foods, carry one-of-a-kind gifts and art, and always know your name, even if you're only here in the summer!
    Review Brielle
    If you love the beach and everything that goes with that, this is your spot! The festivals, fairs, sandcastle building contests, etc. are all fun. There's every kind of water sport here and an abundance of fun activities for all ages. The food is great and diverse and there is no better place to get pizza! You can ride horses at a near-by farm in the morning and go sailing in the afternoon. We have wonderful local theatres inclusive of Two River and Count Basie in Red Bank.
    I have lived in Brielle for seventeen years. I could not have asked for a better location. Being able to be left alone or leaving the door unlocked without worrying about an intruder is something I will miss once I move on my own. The beautiful seasonal change will not disappoint the eye. Being able to hop on a bike and ride to several locations was a simple thing as a child we looked forward once getting out of school. All the authority around made you feel safe and welcomed.
