Getting ready to come to the United States? Every region of the United States has something unique to offer, so get ready to explore! Here’s an insider’s guide to the best of what this region in America has to offer - a list of the Top 10 Things To Do in New Jersey.
Visit a Diner (or a Few)
Join the other locals and nighthawks for some comfort food or a cup of coffee in the state that boasts more diners than any other in the U.S. Oh, and keep an eye out for Bon Jovi.
Head to the Atlantic City Boardwalk
The Atlantic City Boardwalk is the longest of its kind, and one of the world’s most famous. Explore all 5+ miles of attractions on your own, or take a historic walking tour.
Try Saltwater Taffy
Born on the Atlantic City Boardwalk in the late 1800s, taffy is the essential seaside, summertime candy.
Listen to Bruce Springsteen
No one will get you in the New Jersey groove quite like The Boss (Springsteen). A native of the state, Springsteen’s early music is full of references and tributes to the Garden State.
Take a trip to the Jersey Shore
Enjoy the spectacular beaches, check out the amusements, or stroll the boardwalks – there’s something for everyone on the shore.
Watch Horse Racing at Monmouth Park
If you’ve never seen a live horse race, you have to get to Monmouth. And with live races every weekend from May through October, you have of plenty opportunities to do so.
See a Game at Yankee Stadium
Head across the Hudson River to New York City’s South Bronx to cheer on the world’s most famous sports franchise in their beautiful new stadium. Get there early to catch a practice ball, watch some batting practice and score some autographs.
Tube Down the Delaware River
George Washington famously crossed the Delaware at night in the dead of winter. We’d suggest a relaxing, scenic float down river on a sunny, warm afternoon.
Whale Watch in Cape May
Spend an afternoon off the southern tip of New Jersey, taking in the splendor of the Atlantic, and keeping an eye out for these majestic monsters of the deep.
Go to a Concert
Given New Jersey’s proximity to major highways and other east coast cities, its venues consistently draw the best performers and acts. Check out the PNC Bank Arts Center, the Prudential Center, or the Izod Center – three of the largest.
