We arrived before noon, but were pleased to get an early check in. The weather was glorious that day so we were able to take the walk to the downtown area which had lots of shops and numerous restaurant choices. Our pick for lunch Surf Taco, which was such a tasty surprise and of course we could pass up stopping by one of the cupcake shops for a treat. After an afternoon out and about, we returned to our hotel.
If you have the chance to stay at the Oyster Point Hotel, you must get a waterfront room. One of the beautiful waterfront estates across the way was still lit up for the holidays and it was breathtaking. Our room was a good size and the decor was updated as well. We choose a local BYOB Thai place for dinner that was just a short walk away. This is one of the best parts of our stay, since we never had to drive. The next morning we enjoyed a gourmet breakfast at The Pearl restaurant right in our hotel. Our waterfront table was so relaxing! The service at our hotel exceeded our expectations, which is a true benefit of staying at a smaller hotel that treats you as a valued customer.
It was only 24 hours away from home, but we all enjoyed every minute of our time together. Sometimes parents forget how important it is to take time for themselves, but though I missed my family and vice versa I returned a happy and healthier mom. We will do another trip to Red Bank and the Oyster Point Hotel, it was only an hour and 15 minutes away from all of us and the perfect place for a getaway!
