Things to do in New Jersey
New Jersey is seaside fun, and big city attractions all rolled into one. You have beaches, amusement rides and clam bakes. The seafood is unparalleled, as is the fun. You can have a lazy day at the beach or enjoy the Victorian-style Lady River paddlewheel boat for a lunch or dinner cruise.
Do you prefer the big city? Newark offers it all, and close by is New York City. Enjoy the theater, shopping or great food to your hearts content.
Atlantic city offers all night excitement, as well. The casinos will keep you busy late into the night.
New Jersey has fantastic hiking and biking trails and national parks. On the coast there is surfing and kayaking on the coast, and Lucy the Elephant in Margate!
