Discover One Of New Jersey’s Most Majestic Waterfalls – No Hiking Necessary
New Jersey is home to some incredible natural beauty. You can hike up our mountains and see for miles! But sometimes, we want to enjoy nature without a hike. One of the Garden State’s most striking wonders is just a short walk from a parking lot…in the middle of a city!
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/
New Jersey’s own Niagara, the Great Falls are scenic, historic, and all around spectacular. While you’re free to stroll the paths and cross the footbridges for a variety of perspectives, you can also choose to sit and relax. You’ll often see painters and photographers honing their craft at this scenic spot! While the Overlook Lot is currently closed while the park gets a fantastic “face lift,” there are plenty of other parking options available. For more details, click here.
