Seaside is a complete **** hole. If you're not from a beach area and want to go enjoy yourself then go to Pt.Pleasant. Closer to E-Town, Cleaner, less likely to get in trouble. In the middle of the summer the Boardwalks and Bars/Restaurants will be packed anyways; but it's a good time.
The Sleazeside Boardwalk IS bigger.......but man that town is a ****ing **** hole to the limit. I'd never reccomend to anyone to go there if they only get a once in awhile chance at the shore.
Belmar is about the same distance as Pt.Pleasant; a couple of hot spots at night; but not too much going on otherwise.
Long Branch/Sea Bright/Monmouth Beach have a lot of chill atmosphere bars and clubs; but no Boardwalk so not as crowded.
Red Bank is nice; on the Navesink River and only about 15 mins to Sea Bright. Very upscale town; trendy and ritzy. Probably not for the Waterfest crowd; but it's an option and only about a 25 minute ride down some nice secondary back roads.
Overall though, for a shore experience, beach, food, booze, games, clubs, etc....Pt.Pleasant is a good bet.

Rt. 37 on a summer night in anything other than a Plain Jane car doing the speed limit is BEGGING to be given a ticket. Especially with out of state plates. Lots of DUI checkpoints on Rt.37 Corridor as well.
Again, Seaside is just a big boardwalk full of drunk and angry thugs. It can be OK until about 9 or 10 PM and then you walk around wondering which crazy ******* is going to jump you or try and pick a fight.
It's definetly worth checking out a list of shore bars from Sea Bright down to Sleazeside though; Shore Bars bring in some great bands during the summer so you might get to check out a good low-dough show too.
