Ok, so New Jersey might not have the best reputation of all the American states, but that doesn’t mean you should completely disregard it when you think about booking your next trip. The coastal state actually has some great culture and you will find plenty of sights and attractions to keep the whole family entertained during your visit. It really is worth a visit, and here are some excellent reasons why.
What would a vacation be without some fantastic food? Well, you’ll be happy to hear that New Jersey has some especially delicious treats for you to try! Just take Taylor ham, for instance. Taylor ham is just the nickname that North Jerseyans have given to pork roll. And they like to eat theirs with plenty of cheese and egg in a soft bread bun. New Jersey also has a terrific restaurant scene as well, and you can find the best of international cuisine no matter which part of town you are in!
You will find that a trip to New Jersey works out quite cheap. After all, it isn’t the most popular vacation spot in the country, so the accommodation prices aren’t too high. It’s easy to find the best beach vacation rentals in Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ, and you will notice that you won’t have to remortgage your own home to just afford one! Another great thing about New Jersey is the superb public transport network – even if you end up staying slightly out in the suburbs, you’ll still find it easy to get to all the best attractions.
The Jersey Shore
You will have no doubt already heard about the Jersey Shore, and probably not for all the right reasons…
So, the reality TV show set in the Jersey Shore might have something to answer for when it comes to the whole state’s bad reputation. But the shore area is actually a really nice spot to spend some of your holiday. You won’t be too far from the famous Jersey Shore boardwalk, where you will find plenty of enjoyable rides and yummy food. Not only that, though, but the boardwalk boasts some pretty great views!
Want a trip that involves lots of outdoor activities, like hiking and mountain biking? Well, if so, you are in luck – New Jersey has some amazing nature waiting for you to explore! No matter whereabouts you are in the state, you can guarantee that you won’t be too far from the nearest hiking or mountain biking trail. There are also some awesome waterfalls you should think about checking out too. Possibly the state’s favorite with visitors is Great Falls in Paterson, NJ. In actual fact, this is one of the highest waterfalls in the States as well as being a National Historic Landmark.
So, as you can see, you shouldn’t let a reality TV show put you off from visiting this really great state. No matter your age, you are sure to have fun in New Jersey!
