Escapes and Destinations Jersey Doesn't Stink Style

Considering destinations for your next family vacation? One of the many great things about New Jersey is that you don’t need to travel far to experience an amazing getaway. Here are some of our personal favorite destinations to provide inspiration for your next trip.

Along the way, we invite you to join the Jersey Doesn’t Stink fight by standing up to any bad NJ stereotypes or clichés you happen to encounter, particularly from those pesky reality TV shows located throughout the state.

Liberty State Park, Jersey City

If you’re in the northern NJ area, bring the family over to beautiful Liberty State Park for great views of the Statue of Liberty and the New York City skyline. Take advantage of a variety of activities, including open picnic areas, fishing and crabbing, kayaking and canoeing, and more. Don’t miss the Liberty Science Center where you and your family can enjoy a fun-filled approach to learning science.

Asbury Park Boardwalk

Closer to the central part of the state? Check out the Asbury Park boardwalk. Known for its musical history and artistic atmosphere, Asbury offers award-winning restaurants and shops, mini golf and a water park for kids, a variety of nightlife, and a beach voted #1 in Monmouth County in 2011.

Adventure Aquarium, Camden

Looking for a memorable family trip in Southern New Jersey? Swing by Adventure Aquarium, located right on the Camden Waterfront. As the fifth largest aquarium in the country, Adventure Aquarium features nearly 200,000 square feet of space, over 2 million gallons of water and 8,500 animals! A truly one-of-a-kind experience, Adventure Aquarium is the only aquarium in the world to exhibit hippos, and one of only two aquariums in the country to exhibit a hammerhead shark.

So, if you bump into the ladies of the Real Housewives of New Jersey or the cast of Jersey Shore or Jerseylicious on your travels, kindly ask them to stop spreading negative stereotypes at our expense.
