The Garden State may seem like a small place, but visitors soon discover there’s more to see and do in New Jersey than one could ever imagine! From 127 miles of white, sand beaches to 1.1 million acres of outdoor adventure in the Pinelands, the country’s first National Reserve; from more than 100 Revolutionary War battles fought on New Jersey soil to the ‘Invention Factories’ of Thomas Edison; from the wealth of museums tracing history, arts, culture and ethnic heritage to exciting venues that attract worldclass entertainment in Atlantic City, Newark, Princeton, Camden and Trenton; from the more than 150 public and private golf courses to more than 4,000 freshwater lakes, ponds, rivers and streams, New Jersey is indeed what National Geographic coined ’America in Miniature’. With sophisticated new hotels such as the W in Hoboken, the Westin in Jersey City and the Chelsea in Atlantic City and new indoor water parks like Coco Key Water Resort and Sahara Sam’s Oasis, visitors are flocking to the Garden State. Transportation is even easier as visitors can get here through the Atlantic City Express Service (ACES) from New York as well as newly announced AirTran air service at Atlantic City International Airport.
