My 8 Favorite Places In New Jersey

I’ve lived in New Jersey for basically my whole life. I really really hated it at one point, then learned to love its beauty. Yes, it really is beautiful for those who call it the armpit of America! Here are 8 places I love in New Jersey that you should visit if you ever get the opportunity to stop in!

  1. Grounds for Sculpture
    A large garden filled with sculptures, art, and surprises around every corner. The collections are constantly evolving. You can see me at it here.
  2. Schooley’s Mountain
    I’m not great at hiking, so a small park where I can still see waterfalls is great for me! I’ve been visiting Schooley’s Mountain since I was in high school.
  3. Jenny Jump
    I haven’t been to Jenny Jump in a while, but from the top of this little mountain you can see a lot of New Jersey. It’s very peaceful.
  4. Sea Isle City
    Everyone in New Jersey has their preferred shore town, mine is Sea Isle City. You ca catch me here most summers.
  5. Collingswood
    I’m weirdly obsessed with South Jersey and Collingswood epitomizes that for me. Check out the Pop Shop if you ever want some reallyyy good food.
  6. Asbury Park
    Asbury Park is like magical to me. I didn’t even discover it until this year, but the murals and the boardwalk are just so special and artsy.
  7. Rowan University
    This is where I went to college! Rowan is a home for me.
  8. Viaducts
    So, it’s illegal to go here and I dropped a picture of it below. The viaducts are a Weird NJ spot, it is tunnels and tunnels of graffiti and it’s amazing!

Have you ever been to New Jersey? Would love to hear your thoughts and favorite places in the comments 🙂

  1. I’m a Jersey girl too–Paterson. You must make a visit to the Great Falls (recently made a National Park). It’s been fantastic lately due to all the rain. I hope to never leave my state. It’s the best. N.
