New Jersey has dozens of scenic roads and 8 designated scenic byways. These byways are located across the state, from Sussex County to the Delaware Bay. You can traverse the Pinelands or drive through beautiful Monmouth County farmland but one of my favorites is the Palisades Scenic Byway.

These roads were made for driving! The Palisades Interstate Parkway was designed to provide motorists with a scenic and aesthetic driving experience. Henry Hudson Drive was also designed as a pleasure drive, allowing passengers to enjoy exceptional views. The Palisades Scenic Byway will take you from the GWB to the Tappan Zee in the most peaceful way possible. There are cafes and seasonal outdoor eateries along the way but we’ll need to wait a bit for those. Learn more about the drive here.
