What to do...

The area that is now Interlaken was purchased in 1667 by Gavin Drummond from the Lenape Native Americans. It was later part of Ocean Township, which had seceded from Shrewsbury Township in 1849 and included at the time present-day Eatontown, Neptune Township, Neptune City, Avon-by-the-Sea, Bradley Beach, Asbury Park, Allenhurst, Deal, Long Branch, West Long Branch, Loch Arbour, Monmouth Beach, Sea Bright and Oceanport, along with Interlaken itself.

Dr. Francis Weld, a Boston physician, bought a 364-acre tract and named it Interlaken Farm, after Interlaken, a similar peninsula in Switzerland situated between two lakes, that they had just visited. Weld established the Interlaken Land Company in 1890 to turn his farm into a residential community with avenues named after English lakes and cross streets named after the islands in the Hebrides in the Irish Sea. While the initial effort did not succeed, the Stormfelz-Lovely-Neville Company was hired in 1905 to continue the building project, and the community began its growth

There is no commercial district or business district. Interlaken is a purely residential community of just over 395 residences, and a total population of approximatly 900. It is a quiet respite near Ocean beaches and shopping.
