New Jersey Is Home To One Of The Most Visited National Parks In The Country

When you think of America’s most visited national park, what comes to mind? Yellowstone? Perhaps the Grand Canyon? Both are major tourist draws but their visitation pales in comparison to a park that’s partially located in New Jersey. Based on a 2013 data study, Arizona’s Grand Canyon attracts around 4.4 million visitors each year; Yellowstone, which spans three states (Idaho, Montana, Wyoming) brings in around 3.4 million visitors.

The park is also home to Gunnison Beach, New Jersey’s only clothing optional beach. However, the history and scenic beauty of this park are what I love most. For more information about this unique park, check out this article on Fort Hancock and this article about the Nike Missile site. For more details on the events mentioned, check out the “Gateway” page on the National Park Service website.
