There are so many of us living in the Garden State.

We must like it. Or it's where we have our roots. Family lives here and maybe you grew up here.

What are some reasons you love New Jersey? My daughter was born here. I was married here and have lived in different areas of New Jersey. I love where I live in Ocean County.

There has to be so many reasons why we love New Jersey. I know we all love where we live but there are so many negatives about New Jersey. But, this is home to all of us.

Maybe it's the food, we have the best food. Is it the beaches and the boardwalks? Yes, absolutely, the beaches have to make the list. I know, I know the traffic, especially in the summertime is not fun in New Jersey, and we have a lot of traffic.

But, we're close to everything. We're close to New York and Philadelphia. It's easy to pick up a train or a bus and head into the city. Maybe, it's the diners. We all have that special diner that we go to all the time.
