Coming to NJ for the first time — Things to do and see
You never get a second chance to make a first impression. For years, your first impression of New Jersey wasn't a good one. You either entered through old Newark or old Admiral Wilson Boulevard in Camden but those places are changing now.
With so many great things to do in New Jersey, I asked my following where they would take or recommend to someone visiting New Jersey for the first time.
A comedy show at The Comedy Cove
Catch a Show at The Papermill Playhouse
Asbury Park or Cape May!
Cape May. It’s like time stood still in the 60’s…
Cape May and only Cape May
I would tell them to explore the country roads and mountain landscape. Hike the many mountains of NJ .
Hoboken…especially Sinatra Park to see the statue of our most famous Jersey Boy
Garth H. Raymond
The “Jon Bon Jovi Reststop” on the Turnpike!
The Shore, of course.
How about the Pine Barrens to see the Jersey Devil.
Sandy Hook — oldest operational lighthouse in the country, cool wildlife including seals, great view of NY.
Angelo Cosenzo Cordasco
Grounds for Sculpture: Rats restaurant. Nice place, great food, cozy sofas along with a fireplace then walk through the beautiful grounds to see John Seward Johnson's sculptures!
Brett S. Harrison
Steve it has been my experience that New Jerseyites usually have very little difficulty telling people where to go.
