Read an Excerpt

In what state you can see ten thousand hawks in one day? The birthplaces of Grover Cleveland, the electric lightbulb, the commercial blueberry, the ironclad ship, the diner, the drive-in theater, and modern baseball? Where George Washington crossed the Delaware River? In New Jersey, of course!

Barbara Westergaard has now updated her classic—the easy-to-use guide to the Garden State, from Bergen County to Cape May, from the Kittatinny Mountains to the shore. Arranged alphabetically by town and city name, the entries describe what there is to do and see in a community and its surrounding area and how each place is connected to its past. The book lists museums, parks, historical points of interest, natural and recreational areas, and many other attractions. There is also the beloved guided tour of New Jersey Turnpike that identifies what everyone has been whizzing by for so many years.

Whether you are a longtime resident or newcomer to New Jersey, a commuter, a visitor, or a resident of a nearby state, this guide will lead you to new discoveries and heighten your enjoyment of the familiar.
