New Jersey is a state in the northeastern part of the United States with about 130 miles of Atlantic coastline.

Don’t get us wrong, the Jersey Shore is a great family summer destination, with towns like Asbury Park and Cape May, it’s just not the only thing that makes New Jersey great. Atlantic City is another destination on New Jersey’s coast, known for its casinos, boardwalk, and beaches. Each town on the coast has its own character, from small-town boardwalks of Sandy Hook to the resorts of Atlantic City or the beaches of Ocean City. While Jersey City lies across the Hudson River from Lower Manhattan and is where ferries board and leave to visit Ellis Island. Inland, you have the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, home to the New York Giants and New York Jets. There is the Six Flags Theme Park, Princeton University, and head to northern New Jersey and find state parks, places to go horseback riding, hiking, fishing and so much more.
