Overview

No planning required!Need a day away to relax, refresh, renew? Just get in your car and go! This first edition of Day Trips from New Jersey is your guide to hundreds of exciting things to do, see, and discover within New Jersey or a short drive across state lines. With full trip-planning information and tips on where to eat, shop, and stop along the way, you can make the most of your time off and rediscover the simple pleasures of a day trip. Explore places you never knew existed, many free of charge, and most within a 2- to 3-hour drive from points in the Garden State. Choose your passion among the scenic outdoors, stores, museums, food, wine tours, and betting against the dealer. Enjoy fascinating historic and cultural treasures. Explore New Jersey's maritime marvels from Sandy Hook to Cape May, and from Atlantic City across to "Pennsy". You won't go far without tripping over something interesting, entertaining, important, or magnificent. Day Trips New Jersey largely takes you up and down and across New Jersey, but some trips invite you across a state line into what is considered part of the neighborhood.
