This Rare Footage Of A New Jersey Amusement Park Will Have You Longing For The Good Old Days
New Jersey has been referred to as the Amusement Park Capital of America thanks to our abundance of amusement parks (Morey’s Piers, Storybook Land, Six Flags, Keansburg…) but once upon a time there were others. So many of our iconic parks have closed down but today we remember an old favorite.
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/
