Freeholder Director Tom Arnone
Happy summer! I hope everyone has been enjoying the warmer weather and all the county has to offer! There are so many events and activities throughout the county that there is sure to be something for everyone.
With that being said, I am happy to announce the launch of our new and improved tourism website, which can be viewed by visiting www.tourism.visitmonmouth.com. As the liaison to the Monmouth County Department of Public Information and Tourism, I am truly pleased with this new website and how much information is available. From indoor attractions to outdoor activities, this new website should keep everyone busy all summer long. Please check it out!

By Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone
Summer is in full swing and the weather is extraordinary! I’ve been all over the place the past few weeks with my fellow Freeholders, visiting towns, festivals and businesses throughout our beautiful Monmouth County, and nothing makes me happier than to see businesses thriving and residents and tourists enjoying all that we have to offer here. Speaking of festivals, many of these summer events would not be possible without the support of our law enforcement officers, first responders and volunteers. I’d like to take a moment to thank all of our first responders, especially our law enforcement officers during this sad and tragic time in our country. Thank you all for serving and protecting us every day and making our communities a safe place to live. The officers here in Monmouth County are among the best in the country and I pray you stay safe each and every day.
