Today is National New Jersey Day, and #HipNJ wants to help you celebrate!
National New Jersey Day is an event created by National Day as part of a weekly project recognizing each state in the order it joined the union. While New Jersey was the third to enter the union, it was the first to sign the Bill of Rights.
New Jersey has so much to offer, so we put together a guide for your Jersey-themed day.
Start off your day by heading to a Garden State diner, maybe Tops Diner in Newark, and picking up a Taylor Ham, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich. This is the perfect way to get yourself excited for a day at the Jersey Shore.
Now, get in the car and hit Parkway South. A trip to the beach is never complete without some great music, so create a playlist featuring only NJ natives. Here are some suggestions:
Lauryn Hill and the Fugees
Jack Antonoff of Bleachers
Think those are enough artists to create the best playlist you have ever heard? We definitely think so.
Time to hit the beach! Are you heading to Atlantic City, Point Pleasant, Asbury Park or Wildwood? Not today! Today, you’re hitting on of NJ’s most notorious summer spots, Seaside Heights.
Spend the day swimming and tanning, then spend the night walking the iconic (maybe for the wrong reasons) boardwalk. Get a cheesesteak at Midway Steak House and win some dessert on the candy wheel.
The beach isn’t for you? No worries! A day celebrating New Jersey can take many forms. You can appreciate nature by taking a hike in Sussex County. Enjoy the breathtaking views while getting some cardio. Then, head over to a drive-in movie.

We spoke with Conference Planning Committee members Aimee Mnich, ChristinaDiecidue, PeteSchauer and ChrisDelany to learn more about the event, taking place Friday, July 20 at Bell Works in Holmdel.
Founded on innovation and creativity, NJDMConf has become the premiere marketing industry event in the tri-state area. Gathering like-minded thought leaders, NJDMConf was put in place to educate individuals on the latest digital trending topics, provide valuable networking opportunities, and allow a community to come together and share industry tips relevant to building up a brand.
The group saw a need for a marketing-focused event in New Jersey. However, it has since become much more widespread. “Although it is a Jersey-based event, it has become larger than that because of the talent we bring in,” the committee states. People are coming in from across the country to attend.
NJDMConf is a full-day of thought-provoking lectures from industry leaders. These knowledgeable digital marketing professionals are interested in sharing their experiences, providing valuable insight into how they became successful, and showing you the tools needed in order to do so. Both collaborative and fun, innovators from all over the state will flock to the shore area in search of understanding trending digital topics imperative to growing their business. Speakers include Dani Toth from Google and Ty Lingley of Unbounce. “We work with a lot of talented people internally and through our partners, so we are able to cultivate great speakers,” the committee says.
