The Country’s Longest-Running Weekly Rodeo Is In New Jersey, And You Can See It This Summer

New Jersey feels as far from the world of cowboys and Westerns as you can get. However, that doesn’t mean you can find a slice of frontier fun in the state. In fact, the longest-running weekly rodeo in America, established all the way back in 1929, can be found in New Jersey, and it’s such a fun and creative way to spend your Saturday with friends and family.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
