New Jersey

New Jersey Travel Guide

Stop by this tourism center to grab a free map for a Doo-Wop Preservation Tour of Wildwoods’ wildest neon-lit 1950’s architecture.

Watch master boatbuilders in this workshop at the Tuckerton Seaport, a living-history museum of coastal arts and crafts.

A beautiful collection of colored neon signs cast their glow on 1950's-era cinder-block motels - tidy, basic, whitewashed to a glossy shine every May.

Cozy bar with a nautical theme

Shore punks flock to this bowling alley for rock shows and a friendly bar.

Explore 90 miles of sandy beaches, then take a look around the 150-year-old Barnegat Lighthouse. The centerpiece of the museum is the lighthouse's 1856 Fresnel lens, fabricated in Paris by Henri Le Paute and composed of more than 1,000 individual prisms fitted into a massive iron frame.

New Yorkers who once patronized this 63-year-old restaurant-supply company’s Manhattan location (now closed) know it’s worth the 45-minute schlep to the northeastern Jersey incarnation, a one-stop warehouse for professional-quality equipment.

Take one of the excellent guided birding walks at Cape May Point, on the Delaware Bay.

Lucy, Margate's iconic 65-foot-tall elephant-shaped house, now open to the public.

A shop packed to the rafters with driftwood sculptures and seashells.

Walk or bike along this 60-mile trail.
