Don’t Miss Out On This Charming General Store Hidden In A New Jersey State Park

New Jersey may be the mall capital of America but most malls are more practical than pleasant. They offer a wide range of shops and a variety of amenities including fantastic restaurants but they can feel crowded and cold. While I wouldn’t trade my malls for the world, I’ve found a unique shopping spot that’s sure to delight. Warm and welcoming, it’s tucked away inside a beautiful state park!
