Located along the Jersey Shore just over an hour away from both New York and Philadelphia, Avon-by-the-Sea is a scenic resort town hailing back to the Victorian era. Once a resort reserved for the wealthy, this town of 2000 permanent residents not only continues to be a popular destination for vacationers and day trippers, but also offers year-round serenity with gorgeous views, sandy beaches, a non-commercial boardwalk, dozens of in-town shops and restaurants, and water features on three sides.
Of course, the main attraction of Avon-by-the-Sea is the ocean itself—or more specifically, the sandy Avon beach, which is open year-round. Fishing, boating, scuba diving and surfing are popular outdoor activities, with a public pool and tennis courts also available. A non-commercial boardwalk spans the length of the town’s coastline, offering a quiet, reflective place for a morning or evening stroll.
Median home values in Avon-by-the-Sea are estimated around $880,000, well above the state average—in large part due to location and demand.
