This Is What New Jersey Looked Like 100 Years Ago… It May Surprise You

I doubt many of us were around 100 years ago, but luckily, cameras were! It’s so interesting to see what New Jersey looked like throughout the last century, and how much things have changed. Viewing the following photos is kind of like entering a time machine, you can almost imagine what life was like. Do you think things were simpler, or more of a struggle?

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:
