10 Great Things About New Jersey
Too many people get their impressions about New Jersey from Newark Airport and the oil refineries around it. And while I didn't expect this to be a promo piece, just a try to counteract the negatives, we do have a lot of cool things here, and most of the State is green vs. asphalt.
1. Liberty Science Center
Lots of cool "sciency" things here. A personal favorite.
2. National / State Parks
From High Point to Cape May, there's lots to do and places to visit.
3. Home to NFL (2) / MLB (2) / NBA (2) / NHL (2) teams
And South Jersey is close to Philly teams...if that's you're thing.
4. Best Pizza in the US
Some may argue, but would be wrong. :)
5. Lots and Lots of U.S. History & Historic Sites
6. Driving Distance To Big Cities
New York City, Philadelphia, and even Baltimore are within reasonable driving distance from New Jersey.
7. The Shore
130 miles of coast line, with great shore towns having lots to do for adults and kids.
After baking in the Jersey sun, take a walk on the boardwalk...
And get some salt water taffy!
9. Tomatoes & Corn
10. Arts / Culture & Museums
Who'da thunk it?
11. Six Flags Great Adventure
For thrill seekers. BTW, we're also just a couple hours away from Hershey Park and Dorney Park in PA.
