About New Jersey
One of the smallest states in the USA, New Jersey packs a punch as a destination steeped in old-school style, history and scenic landscapes. Book a room with a view of the New York City skyline, head to the coast for pretty seaside towns and sailing aplenty, soak up the impressive heritage of whip-smart Princeton, or ensconce yourself in rural bliss. The state abounds with excellent accommodation options, including everything from heritage inns and romantic boltholes to chic high-rise hotels, fit for a whole host of budgets. Most of the best places to stay in New Jersey are small and characterful, promising a wonderfully warm welcome.
Come summer, it seems like all of New Jersey makes a beeline for the Atlantic coast and the Jersey Shore. With 127 miles of beautiful beaches, there’s stacks of space and an appealing array of seaside spots to choose from. Sandy Hook promises lovely white dunes within views of Manhattan, Atlantic City features the world’s longest boardwalk, as well as some top-notch amusement parks and casinos, whilst Victorian Cape May is a fun place for a seaside family holiday. For quirky kitsch, look no further than the three Wildwood towns, which also offer some of the coast’s largest beaches.
If you’re on the hunt for outdoorsy adventures, the 190-acre Cape May Point State Park is a brilliant pick, as are the Gateway National Recreation Area and the Pinelands National Reserve, near Atlantic City.
Perched on the edge of the Delaware River, Lambertville has a lovely, laid-back feel, whilst tiny Princeton features one of the most illustrious Ivy League universities in the country. Both are ideal for a relaxed weekend.
Jersey City, on the other hand, is a terrific place to soak up the great outdoors in Liberty State Park, catch a live gig or retrace the steps of immigrants who came through Ellis Island to the city.
Whether you’re dreaming of the city or the beach, New Jersey is set to dazzle and delight with its charming inns, funky design hotels and soaring city pads. Book your trip well in advance if you plan to travel during the summer — the best places to stay in New Jersey fill up fast!
