New Jersey Vacations
Although New Jersey is often overlooked for the larger state of New York, the East Coast’s Garden State has more beauty than its reputation gives it credit for. As the most densely populated state in the United States, New Jersey is home to a number of metropolitan areas. However, the state’s Western reaches offer a respite from the hustle and bustle of the cities, offering quaint New England towns and sprawling farmland. Euro-American settlers first arrived in this small state in the seventeenth century, and New Jersey quickly established itself as an industrial leader. After hosting many battles during the Revolutionary War, New Jersey’s population skyrocketed to more than 180,000 people by the end of the eighteenth century. Following World War II, New Jersey saw a dramatic influx of immigrants to its cities, and hosted some of the world’s fastest-growing metropolises.
While visitors generally avoid some of the most populated New Jersey cities, such as Newark, the state’s coastline is home to a number of scenic and cultural retreats. Couples and families alike can enjoy the plethora of entertainment options along the Jersey shoreline. Each year these destinations draw millions of visitors looking for endless entertainment. Asbury Park Boardwalk offers an eclectic option of boutique shopping and live music while Point Pleasant’s Jenkinson’s Boardwalk features a family-friendly amusement park, night clubs, live entertainment and numerous dining options. Visitors looking for nonstop excitement can head over to the Seaside Heights Boardwalk, which features two amusement parks, several arcades, a water park and a number of family-friendly dining options. Guests looking to enjoy the coastal scenery can retreat to Cape May, which hosts a quaint National Historic District that features more than 600 Victorian buildings. Visitors can stroll along Washington Street Mall or head over to Fisherman’s Wharf to enjoy fine dining with views of the Cape May Harbor. Couples looking for a romantic evening can walk along Sunset Beach in search of polished quartz, known as Cape May Diamonds, that washes ashore.
Couples looking for an exciting vacation destination can head over to Atlantic City, which offers a cornucopia of casinos, nightclubs and stunning beaches. This Oceanside resort is considered to be the gaming capital of New England and draws more than 30 million visitors each year. The city skyline features stunning luxury hotels and casinos such as The Water Club, Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City and the Trump Taj Mahal. Guests can enjoy fine dining, get pampered at world-renowned spas or enjoy a round on a championship golf course. Specialty shoppers can find endless entertainment at The Pier Shops at Caesars while those looking for a bargain may flock to the Atlantic City Outlets, which covers more than fifteen city blocks.
