Nothing compares with the magic of the Jersey Shore and the classic Jersey boardwalks
at Asbury Park, Point Pleasant, Seaside, Atlantic City, Ocean City, and Wildwood. They are a special place. The
Jersey Shore has some of the best surfing spots on the East Coast, and 100's of colorful beach towns. To
quote Junot Diaz, "The boardwalk was where all of NJ came together; Where NJ for better or
worse, met itself."
Over 17% of NJ land belongs
to small family run farms that grow over 70 different crops. Local favorites are blueberries, cranberries, and
