Tinton Falls
Travel Guide

With nearly 25 historic sites and over 100 shops, this quaint borough in New Jersey combines heritage attractions with modern entertainment. 

Tinton Falls is small borough in Monmouth County, New Jersey, known for its historical buildings and nearby waterfall. The town is conveniently located near New York City and the Jersey Shore.

Tinton Falls was originally part of nearby Shrewsbury. In 1950, it broke away as New Shrewsbury. Finally, in 1975, the town assumed its current identity of Tinton Falls. The town is named after Tinton Manor, the 17th-century estate of local landowner Lewis Morris. Morris played an important part in the formation of the United States of America as one of the signatures on the United States Declaration of Independence and as a delegate to the Continental Congress.

Tinton Falls Historic District pays tribute to the town's history. Stop by 21 recognized points of historic or archaeological interest, including nine historical homes. See the site of an early iron works, which was the town's primary industry in its early days. Visit the site of an applejack distillery and a 17th-century blacksmith shop.

One of the main attractions of the town is its namesake waterfall. Tinton Falls tumbles 19 feet (5.8 meters) into the Pine Brook River. It is known as the highest natural waterfall in New Jersey's coastal plains. Take a walk along paths around the falls or pack a picnic to enjoy alongside the waterfall.

Go shopping at Jersey Shore Premium Outlets, one of the most popular destinations in town. Browse more than 120 stores, where you can buy anything from designer clothing to home goods at a reasonable price.

Tinton Falls is just minutes from some of the state's best beaches along the Jersey Shore. Rent a car to drive to Ocean Grove, Bradley Beach and Avon-By-The-Sea in less than 20 minutes. A bus also runs between Tinton Falls and the beaches throughout the day.

The bustle of New York City is just 50 miles (80.5 kilometers) away by car or train. Drive to Newark Airport, 36 miles (57.9 kilometers) to the north.
