My family and I would like to go to the beach tomorrow and wanted to take the train in my Newark Penn Station (live in Union). I really don't want to be sitting in traffic or get to the beach and can't find parking so rather take the train than to drive. Not too much interested in the boardwalks, my stepson is 4yrs and wanted something less crowded. So I don't too much want to go to Point Pleasant, since everyone says its crowded. I do hear Wildwood Crest is nice, less crowded, and free but is it close to a train station?
So far I've read that the following beaches tend to be less crowded and better for family:
Any opinions and are these close to a train station? Again not too much into the boardwalks, crowds and want something in small budget.
