Entre sérénité et effervescence, le New Jersey offre une grande diversité d’activités côtières. Island Beach State Park, qui borde l’océan Atlantique et Barnegat Bay, est l’un des rares endroits du littoral à avoir résisté au développement urbain. Dans ce parc de 1 214 hectares, profitez de programmes éducatifs, de sentiers, de zones de baignade et de belvédères pour admirer les oiseaux, en particulier les balbuzards pêcheurs.

Des villes balnéaires animées tout au long de l’année, comme Seaside Heights et Cape May, sont réputées pour leurs passerelles en bois, leurs jetées propices à la pêche, leurs activités et leurs événements tels que Polar Bear Plunge et St. Patrick’s Day Parade, ainsi que leurs festivals dédiés aux fruits de mer et aux barbecues.

Atlantic City, quant à elle, propose une vie nocturne des plus animées. Sa célèbre promenade en bois sur le front de mer accompagne les visiteurs jusqu’aux casinos, boutiques et hôtels de la ville. Prenez le temps de visiter Newark et Jersey City pour un moment placé sous le signe de la gastronomie, du shopping et de la culture. Vivez pleinement votre passion pour l’art et l’histoire en découvrant des sites comme le Newark Museum, le Morris Museum à Morristown, le New Jersey State Museum and Planetarium à Trenton, ainsi que d’autres lieux plus intimistes aux quatre coins de l’État.

L’État-Jardin, comme on aime le surnommer, s’apprécie en toutes saisons, que ce soit lors de vacances à la plage ou de séjours au ski, par exemple sur les pistes de Campgaw Mountain à Mahwah et de Mountain Creek à Vernon. Golf, équitation, randonnée, parachute ascensionnel ou encore parties de pêche dans l’océan, les baies et les lacs... Impossible de s’ennuyer.
