Local Business Love, in Pt. Pleasant, NJ

Updated: Jul 16, 2021

As many of you know, I was born and raised in Pt. Pleasant, NJ and while I don’t live there now, I am not far and still feel pride for the town that helped shape me! I love to support the amazing people and businesses who helped to make growing up there, memorable. So many local businesses have suffered over the past year and I hope I can draw some attention to a few below…

Sunshine Daydream

I posted about them not too long ago. I was wearing that amazingly soft, ribbed, long sleeve bodysuit and cloud like peach cardigan. Sunshine Daydream is a small boutique, right on Bay Ave, in the heart of town and have the best stuff! Everyone gets their gifts for their bridesmaids there, [like the layered necklace I have] shops for the cutest clothes and they have the most adorable accessories! [such as these delicious candles!] Their prices are on point for a boutique with high quality product. I’ve included links above, to some things that I own, for you to check out!

Nature’s Reward Produce Market and Garden Center

Nature’s Reward is a wonderful place to grab amazing quality plants, shrubs and flowers! They fill the sides of Bridge Ave and Route 88 with bright, beautiful greenery and pops of color from Spring to Fall, and they are so wonderful to work with! I’ve gotten so many plants from there, including all of my salvias! They’re a small family owned business and are always pleasant to talk to when popping in! The Bridge Ave location offers a small farmers market as well, where you can pick up delicious produce!

The Beanery

This spot is a great place, also in the heart of downtown Pt. Beach, to get lunch or even just an AMAZING coffee drink! The frozen vanilla chai tea is my favorite, along with their avocado toast! Just thinking about it makes me want to drive down and go! You can order online for pickup, dine in or even get your event catered by them! It’s a nice, quaint little spot to go sit and relax, and they’re kid friendly! You can check out their menu here.


I’m sure many of you have heard of this magical place and while people think it is owned by Jenkinson, himself…it most certainly is not. It is, however, owned by a small family that has turned it into the main draw to our town in the summer. It has the beach and boardwalk, complete with rides and arcade games. It has a wonderful aquarium that specializes in bringing in injured wildlife and taking good care of them. I love bringing my sons here! It’s small and intimate and the staff are so knowledgable and love to talk about their area of specialty! They also have a plethora of bath houses, bars and restaurants and provide various entertainment schedules throughout the summer, from fire works to animal shows and more! You can definitely make an entire day and evening out of it!

Baja East Surf Shop

The place for all things surf, skate and snowboard. Baja East has the cutest clothes, bathing suits and fun things for around the home! You’re getting all of the name brands, ie Hurley, Ripcurl and then some you’ve never heard of…but they’re up there with the best! The one thing you will remember forever, is the smell of coconut wax, as soon as you walk in. It’s sensational! It’s owned and run by two brothers who have become well known in the Pt. Pleasant community, in which they live and raise their children!

Vesuvio Pizza

This is, I think, the best pizza in town! I use to go here for lunch in HS all the time and was always so excited the day that we chose to! They’re super friendly and it’s just a regular down to earth pizzeria. Easy to dine in or pick up and go! There menu is here.

Cowan Investigation

Bob Cowan, the owner of Cowan Investigations, is the best of the best. He is the former Chief of the Jersey City Police Department and has 35+ years of experience. Plus, he has built his business on trust, knowledge, and expertise. “Bob Cowan has invested in acquiring the latest high-tech surveillance equipment. While some other New Jersey investigators may have some of this same technology, what they often lack is the experience and expertise to use it properly. When working with Cowan Investigations, your trust and confidence in our work will be built on our many years of investigative and surveillance experience and detailed knowledge of our craft.” Your peace of mind is their business – they serve the New Jersey area 24/7 and Bob Cowan is prepared to put his wealth of knowledge and experience to work for you. If you need a private investigator in Point Pleasant Beach NJ (or anywhere in NJ), call them today for a free 30 minute consultation!
