National New Jersey Day is normally a day that everyone ignores. Maybe it is because the state is one of the smaller ones. Or maybe it is because most people only spend time in this state to fly out of Newark Airport to other vacation destinations. Well, if you are looking for a chance to spend a little time in New Jersey, there are plenty of family activities to keep you occupied. Keep reading to see the three things to do in New Jersey I recommend the most.
National New Jersey Day – 3 Things to Do in New Jersey
Spend a Little Time in Cape May
Some of your best vacation memories can be made with family in Cape May. Visiting this coastal area always tops my list of three things to do in New Jersey. After a visit to the Harriet Tubman Museum, and a walk through the South Cape May Meadows, it will be time for a drink. There are plenty of breweries, wineries, and even a distillery to choose from in Cape May.
I recommend you stay in this area until sunset. This will ensure you can watch the sunset over the water with the Cape May Lighthouse in the distance. A beautiful experience to share with your family for National New Jersey Day.
Visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
You may be surprised to learn that you don’t need to travel to New York City to head over to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. You can hop onto a ferry to this iconic monument and historic island in New Jersey.
As your travel advisor, I can easily make reservations for you, as I am planning the rest of your vacation in New Jersey for National New Jersey Day.
Wander Around Thomas Edison National Historical Park
Thomas Edison was the inventor of the light bulb. But he should be remembered for so much more! When you take the time to visit this historical park, you can see Edison’s former home and laboratory. Inside the lab, you can see his recording studio and workshops.
These are the three best things to do in New Jersey for National New Jersey Day. If you have never spent much time in New Jersey, then I recommend you add these three things to do to the top of your list during your next visit.
