Looking for New Jersey day trips and activity ideas? I have plenty and I’m constantly adding to it!
One of the amazing things about New Jersey, is that because the state is so small you can take an hour+ drive anywhere and spend the day somewhere you might not have been before. Click above for my recommendations!
While you’re driving, be sure to check out some New Jersey Roadside Attractions!
Want to spend an amazing day shopping? New Jersey has more than just malls, it has amazing flea markets scattered all throughout the state! Whether you love antiquing, used furniture, or want to check out local vendors, I can’t recommend flea markets enough! Some are year round, some are seasonal, and some are just a few times a year…but all are worth checking out!
Lighthouses! There are so many beautiful lighthouses in New Jersey…some you can tour and some you can gawk at.Either way, they’re a great part of a day trip.
Zoos, aquariums and planetariums are family friendly, fun, educational and in some cases…FREE!
