New Jersey natives take their food seriously – just ask someone what they think about pork roll vs Taylor ham! We’re also picky about bagels and pizza, and will eat scrapple as long as you don’t ask us to explain exactly what it is.
What are the best small towns in New Jersey?
Haddonfield and Clinton are always at the top of the “best small towns” lists! Moorestown, Mt. Holly, Montclaire, Princeton, and Spring Lake are also worth a visit to experience charm, history, and accommodating locals all in one spot.
What are the most beautiful places in New Jersey?
Nature lovers fall for the Delaware Water Gap area and the New Jersey Highlands. If you’re a beach person, you might find the sandy stretches of Sea Isle City or Island Beach State Park to be the most beautiful. In between the mountains and the shore, rolling farmlands blend with suburbia to create scenery unique to the Garden State.
