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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

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.
