15 Photos That Remind Us Why We’re Thankful To Live In New Jersey

New Jersey isn’t perfect but there’s a lot to be thankful for here. We have top-notch schools and access to comfort foods 24/7 (thank you, diners). We’ve got mountains, beaches, and beautiful museums (the Montclair Art Museum, Morris Museum, Liberty Science Center, Sterling Hill Mining Museum, and Princeton Art Museum, for starters). And we can’t forget the best bagels, pizza, pork roll, and peaches around! Yes, peaches. The Garden State is a top producer of fruits and vegetables including peaches, cranberries, blueberries, tomatoes, corn, and so much more. I can, and have, made countless lists devoted to all New Jersey has to offer but today we’re focusing on the beauty that surrounds us. Check out the photos below for proof!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
