Best Road Trips in New Jersey

See the Garden State Along These Famed Tours

Hit the road and see the Jersey Shore this summer, have a snowy adventure in Delaware River Valley this winter, and just plain enjoy yourself any time in between.

Why not start with the Garden State Parkway? Coursing down the entire eastern edge of New Jersey, the parkway is a 172-mile stretch of road taking travelers past – and sometimes through – attractions like museums, stadiums, amusement parks, and state forests.

Now see the Delaware River Valley. Follow the Delaware River as you explore small-town and big-city New Jersey. Check out historic sites like Downtown Bordentown City, Battleship New Jersey, and Red Bank Battlefield Park in National Park, or connect with nature at Mercer County Park and Rancocas State Park.

For a truly picturesque tour of New Jersey, plan for the Northwest Mountains. Cities like Morristown and Ramsey act as excellent base camps for this next and last journey through NJ. You'll want to check out the Ramsey Main Street Train Station, and the Willowbrook Mall is an ideal place to reload on supplies while visiting Fairfield.
