New Jersey: Beaches, Boardwalks and Bustling Cities

A stone’s throw from Manhattan and home to more than 130 miles of Atlantic shoreline, New Jersey is not only one of the most populous states in the U.S. but also one of the most visited. Domestic tourists and international travellers alike make their way to this part of the world, all looking to enjoy the long stretches of beach, bustling boardwalks, busy city streets and scenic parkland. In fact, you might be surprised by just what awaits you in the Garden State.

Betting it All in Atlantic City

Undoubtedly, the most popular tourist destination in New Jersey, Atlantic City is something of a novelty along the Eastern Seaboard. The resort city is world-renowned for its numerous and vast casinos, not least because this is one of the few locations you’re legally allowed to gamble. Records show that only Las Vegas has more casinos in America.

Vast casino resorts with shiny hotels, world-class amenities and a plethora of dining options await visitors in Atlantic City. Whether you’re into slot machines, blackjack or poker, you’ll find no shortage of places to lay your money down. If you’re lucky, you might even leave with a few extra dollars.

As well as legalised gambling, Atlantic City is also known for its boardwalk, America’s first boardwalk. Stretching more than five miles, you’ll discover a world of entertainment and attractions along the historic walkway, including amusement parks, piers, restaurants, bars and much more.

Fun and Frolics Down the Shore

For those living in New York, Philadelphia, Washington and the other metropolises of the Northeast, New Jersey has long been thought of as a family-friendly vacation destination. Generations of families have traditionally headed “down the shore” to enjoy a pleasant getaway from the city, and continue to do so today.

Ocean City is one of the most popular destinations along the Jersey Shore. Home to pristine beaches, an exciting boardwalk and hundreds of hotels, the city is an ideal destination for those looking to enjoy a weekend break or a week-long getaway. The same can be said of the Wildwoods, consisting of Wildwood, Wildwood Crest and North Wildwood. Like Ocean City, beaches and boardwalks await visitors to the area.

If you’re looking for something a little more unique than your typical Jersey Shore haunt, Cape May, NJ may be the destination for you. Located in the southernmost part of the state, this small city still features an array of wooden, Victorian-style properties. To say this is a postcard-friendly destination is an understatement. If you’re lucky enough, you may even find yourself staying in an historic, Victorian-era hotel. Of course, even at Cape May there’s plenty of beach to be enjoyed too.

Trenton: The State Capital

Located in the west of the state, close to the Pennsylvania border, Trenton, NJ serves as the state capital. As such, it routinely welcomes government and business travellers. But for all the administrative duties that are undertaken here, there’re still a number of interesting sights for tourists to take in.

The New Jersey State Museum collects tens of thousands of artefacts and antiquities to provide an educational look at history, archaeology, culture and fine arts. It’s easy to spend a full day roaming its exhibit rooms taking in the treasures on display. Additionally, the museum also houses a popular planetarium.

An important site during the American Revolutionary War, you’ll also find a number of historic sites located about the city, as well as war memorials. The Old Barracks Museum is worth a visit, as is the Trenton Battle Monument.

When you’re done with your historical explorations, Six Flags Great Adventure theme park is less than 30 minutes from Trenton by car. For those travelling with children, this is sure to be an unmissable stop.

Princeton: A Historic University Town

Famed for its Ivy League university, Princeton serves as a pleasant stopover point on any tour of New Jersey. The university itself, which was actually founded before the United States declared its independence from the British, houses a host of historic buildings, each one more picturesque than the last.

Princeton is also home to Princeton Battlefield State Park, the site of the battle of Princeton. Travellers can enjoy scenic gardens, walking trails, museums and other pleasant amenities during their visit to the park.

In the Shadow of Manhattan

Of course, it’s hard to think of New Jersey without imagining the looming towers and hurried streets of New York City, which lays so close by. Many travellers heading for the Big Apple land at Newark Liberty International Airport, situated in Newark, NJ, and continue their journey onwards.

Visitors to Jersey City or Hoboken can simply look across the bay and marvel at the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline. Meanwhile, East Rutherford, NJ houses the monolithic MetLife Stadium, home to both of the NFL’s New York teams, the Giants and the Jets. Between September and December, thousands of football fans make the journey from New York to New Jersey each week to cheer on their team.

With hotel prices generally lower in the Garden State, New Jersey can be a viable base of operations for travellers looking to explore Manhattan without breaking the bank. As long as you’re okay with public transport, travelling between the two is as easy as hopping on a bus or catching a train.
