New Jersey is a stunning state with a diverse landscape, so it would only make sense if more movies were filmed here. Several films have already taken advantage of our varied topography, including some that may surprise you. Click
here to learn which films feature us on the big screen, and read on to learn what other spots we think would be spectacular on film. Location scouts, take note!
1. High Point State Park, Sussex
You've got lakes, mountains, and a monument - what more do you need?
2. The Pine Barrens
Our magnificent pinelands would be perfect for eerie thrillers and woodsy adventure flicks.
3. Manasquan Reservoir, Howell
This beautiful spot could easily be a scene in a romantic comedy, but I see it starring in science fiction.
4. Duke Farms, Hillsborough
This picturesque spot is a perfect place for a first date scene.
5. Flower Hill Cemetery, North Bergen
Ideal for a horror flick, this cemetery may actually be haunted. Many who lost their lives in the tragic Hoboken Piers fire of 1900 are buried here.
6. Palisades Cliffs, Alpine
Many movies could be filmed on these beautiful cliffs.
7. Sandy Hook Lighthouse, Sandy Hook
The oldest working lighthouse in America, this spot would be ideal for historical dramas.
8. Delaware Water Gap
Anywhere along this stretch of river could be used in a great action or adventure flick. I'm seeing something to do with rafting...
9. USS New Jersey, Camden
This is obviously a great spot for a classic wartime flick to be filmed.
10. Navesink Twin Lights, Highlands
This unique structure would fit well in anything related to architecture.
11. Cape May
This picturesque Victorian resort town was made for the movies.
12. Jenny Jump State Forest, Warren County
Views like this belong on the big screen.
13. Atlantic City
A great spot for sequels to The Hangover and Ocean's Eleven. It doesn't always need to be Vegas!
14. Great Falls, Paterson
They could be a scenic date spot, or star in an end of the world flick. Have you ever seen the rushing falls after a heavy rain?
15. Our beautiful bogs!
So vibrant and unique, I'm sure they could find their way into some sort of movie.
