Manasquan is the southern most beachfront town in Monmouth County. It is bordered at the south by Point Pleasant and Brielle, at the west by Wall Township, and at the north by Sea Girt. Manasquan was first settled as a part of Shrewsbury in the late 1600’s. It takes its name, Man – A – Squaw – Han (stream of the Island of Squaws) from the Lenni Lenape Indians who were summer visitors there for hundreds of years. Manasquan is a prime seashore destination and is a community often sought after for both summer and year-round residence. The town is rich in character and tradition, and it is common for residents of Manasquan to be second and third generation. The community has a large Fourth of July celebration and also sponsors a popular running event known as the Turkey Trop. The influx of tourist to Manasquan is a source of conflict in the eyes of some residents of the town. The major highway in Manasquan is State Highway 71 and our lawyers find that this roadway is the primary site of traffic stops, including those for DWI and DUI, within the town.
