Steel Pier is a great destination with rides for all ages located right off of the boardwalk. While many visitors come here for the vibrant and exciting nightlife, if you want to have fun learning at the Atlantic City Aquarium, Ripley’s Believe it or Not, or Atlantic City Historical Museum, or get inspired at the Atlantic City Art Center, the Atlantic City Ballet, or the African American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey, there’s no shortage of daytime activities to keep you busy.
Ocean City is all about, you guessed it, the ocean! Ocean City’s 8 miles of sunny surf and sand attract thousands of visitors every season. Ocean City boasts its own iconic boardwalk with over three miles of famous hotels, restaurants, and attractions. This easily traversable landmark is a perfect place to rent a bike or take it all in with a stroll. Enjoying your time here isn’t just fun, it’s historic! Trimper’s Rides has hosted fun rides and attractions since 1890, and Thrasher’s French Fries has been serving their famous fries since 1929. Since 1939 Dumser’s Dairyland has been selling their award-winning ice cream, and Dolle’s Candyland has satisfied the sweet tooth of visitors since 1910 with their famous caramel popcorn, fudge, chocolates, mellow mints, and iconic saltwater taffy.
Big City Sights
While the state’s iconic boardwalks and charming historical cities might be the first things that spring to mind when planning your travels through New Jersey, the state’s larger cities are packed with attractions for families, adults, and business travelers alike. Newark, the state’s most populous city, and Jersey City, the state’s fastest-growing city, are also increasingly popular travel destinations. Whether you’re looking to tour the Statue of Liberty, support local artists at the Artist and Maker Market, or take in Jersey City’s culinary offerings like Wurstbar, Maritime Parc, or Battello, Jersey City has something for everyone. Likewise, Newark is packed with museums, parks, theaters, and galleries. Newark Museum is the state’s largest museum and features famous art and natural science exhibits. For food lovers, Newark doesn’t disappoint either: Nasto’s, Manu’s, Nico Kitchen, Vonda’s Kitchen, and more await you in Newark!
With how much is on offer in the state’s diverse cities, you wouldn’t expect New Jersey to also be a place with stunning natural attractions, but, from Island Beach to Mount Tammany, New Jersey’s natural attractions are just as diverse and just as inviting as those on offer in the cities. Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, The Frelinghuysen Arboretum, and Ken Lockwood Gorge Wildlife Management area allow you to see nature up close from easily traversable trails and walkways. Buttermilk Falls is the state’s highest waterfall, and there are options to park nearby or to hike the steep trails. For those adventurous hikers, the New Jersey Palisades features dramatic cliff faces rising from the river, Black Run Preserve features sandy trails through dramatic pine forests and wetlands, and High Point Monument Trail takes you to the state’s point of highest elevation – if you don’t mind climbing 220 steep steps!
