"Red Bank-An actual destination." Red Bank by feline01

Red Bank Travel Guide: 60 reviews and 57 photos

Red Bank is located near the Jersey shore which is a plus but people actually visit Red Bank for itself. It's located on the banks of the Navesink River which gives it a nice backdrop to begin with. Add a very well developed downtown with loads of restaurants, cafes, cool shops, good pubs, theaters etc.. and you'll see why this is such a popular destination to live and visit. And it is the hub of one of my all-time favorite movie directors, Kevin Smith. If anyone has ever seen the movie, Clerks (hilarious!), Chasing Amy (funny), Mallrats(not one of his best) or Dogma (more hilarious), you will appreciate Red Bank. Read more to understand why...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Vibrant dowtown with great eats, movies and art.
  • Cons:Full of pretentious wealthy pricks.
  • In a nutshell:Nice place to visit but couldn't afford to live there.

    Red Bank is one happenin' place--summer concerts at the park are great!!! Musicians entertain on Saturday evenings throughout the summer, too. We really like it!
