About New Jersey
New Jersey is one of the smallest, though certainly not small in nature, states on the East Coast of the United States. It is a big business and government center as it sits in between the famous US cities New York and Philadelphia. The proximity to these hubs causes an interesting cultural split in the state, the North often associated with New York and the south taking on Philly's feel. New Jersey is a great destination for its beaches, its nightlife, and its natural features.
Things to Do in New Jersey
When people vacation to New Jersey, many go hangout at the beaches on the Jersey Shore or go bird watching on Cape May. However, for those who prefer to have dirt in their boots instead of sand, the south and northeast have hiking opportunities like on the Appalachian Trail. The Palisades are in the north, though if you're headed up you might want to take a ferry from Jersey City to New York attractions like the Statue of Liberty. Newark, however is the biggest city in New Jersey and is the heart of economics and Jersey culture (check out the Newark Museum while you are there). Atlantic city, a beach casino and resort location, has the most raging nightlife. For a small state, New Jersey has just as many things to do as a state twice its size.
New Jersey Accommodations
Even if your primary destination is New York, New Jersey vacation rentals can offer the proximity to popular activities at a lesser cost. And you might just decide that your Jersey City rental, Atlantic City condo or apartment in Newark gives you so many to-do options you’ll just stay in state! New Jersey is packed with places to stay and diverse things to do, so you can accomplish everything on your must-see list in or out of state all within a drive of your rental.
