14 Staggeringly Beautiful Places In New Jersey That Will Always Be Waiting For You

First, this list is by no means exhaustive. There are dozens of beautiful places in New Jersey, hundreds even. Second, this list is in no particular order. I absolutely cannot rate the beauty of the Garden State on a simple scale; all these spots are lovely in their own way. Third, and most importantly, restaurants and attractions, while we may adore them, come and go – nature is always waiting for us.

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/

Which of these photos is your favorite? I’m partial to numbers 3,9,10, and 14 but I really do love them all. Share your favorite New Jersey destinations (and photos!) with us in the comments. Discover more of our favorites on this list of gorgeous Garden State spots.
