This 49-Mile Drive Is the Best Way to See New Jersey’s Stunning Coast

New Jersey has hundreds of miles of coastline; from the Hudson, to the Delaware, to the Atlantic Ocean, we’re surrounded by water. As a peninsula, our geography affords us some spectacular views. To experience the beauty of the Delaware, our northern forests and the Kittatinny Mountains, take a drive down Old Mine Road. To take in our stunning shoreline, there’s no road better than Ocean Drive.

I can imagine a better way to enjoy the shore. While the trip is short (just around 50 miles), you’ll need to plan for shore traffic and all the fantastic things to see and do along the way. Stop and spend the night anywhere you wish but be sure to bring cash – Ocean Drive is a toll road without EZPass. For a map and directions, click here.
