New Jersey, and New Jersey Vacation Rentals, are more than just easy access to New York City, it lays claim to a variety of attractions itself. The fact that Six Flags in New Jersey is the home of the tallest roller coaster on the east coast is just the beginning; NJ has the oldest operating lighthouse in America, living history museums, the 3,000-acre Island Beach State Park, and metropolitan areas such as Atlantic City (the birthplace of the Monopoly board game) and Newark. With universities like Princeton and Rutgers, it should also be no surprise that New Jersey has more scientists and engineers than any other state. But regardless, New Jersey is a great destination spot with the largest collection of Tibetan artwork (in Newark Museum), planetariums, wineries, and places to explore the outdoors all over the state. NJ isnâ€™t called the Garden State for nothing: try a U-Pick Farm, where you pick your own vine-ripe fruit and vegetables. Horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking, hiking and biking are also great activities that are available in places like the mountains of Worthington and High Point State Park, or explore the wildlife of the Edwin Forsyth National Wildlife Refuge.
