Here in New Jersey, we got it all, great entertainment, night life and of course the Jersey Shore! What more could you ask for when living on the east coast? Here are some of our favorite things about the living in the Garden State!
There are over 500 diners in this hungry state, all including late night specials, a menu filled with every styled burger and fries you can imagine and great service! So, if you’re finishing a night on the town or just up for an early bird special, odds are you’ll end up at a diner.
Full Service Gas Stations
New Jersey is the last state standing with full service gas stations, and we aren’t complaining one bit. When sitting in the car, mid-winter and saying “20 regular cash” to the attendant, we are all reminded of one of the many reasons why we love Jersey.
You’ll experience all four seasons when living in the Garden State. So, if winter white is what you want, we got it. We have hot summers, perfect for beachy days. Autumns are cool with beautiful trees changing to gorgeous hues. As for spring, the conditions are perfect for blooming plants – they don’t call it the Garden State for nothing!
Last but never least, the Jersey Shore. This is easily one of our favorite places in New Jersey. Our beautiful beaches attract the masses. A day the Garden State beaches basking in the sun or walking a nearby boardwalk, will get you a bronzed glow in no time.
When living in New Jersey we get to enjoy many of the perks of New York City without having to be stuck in the hustle of loud noises, honking cars and flashing lights. Looking to have a fun night out on the town? Going out has never been so easy, New York City is just a hop skip and a river away.
Along with its views of city skylines, there are many ways to pass time out in the nature of the Garden State. Whether you’re into hiking, climbing, boating, or fishing, there are many opportunities to get out and enjoy the outdoors in Jersey.
Nightlife & Drinks
New Jersey is filled with bars, pubs and all things nightlife. A night out with friends can include bar hopping, a pub crawl, catching a show or just dancing the night away. If the nightlife isn’t enticing enough for you, Jersey also has some great wineries and breweries.
Pizza and Bagels
Though the debate on Taylor Ham versus Pork Roll may not be settled, we can come together and agree that New Jersey’s bagels and New Jersey Pizza are a breed of their own. So, if you love carbs, Jersey is the right place for you.
You might know it as the backdrop for ‘Boardwalk Empire’, but here, the locals consider Atlantic City as our mini Vegas.
