Facts

When to visit:

New Jersey’s almost countless resort towns and beaches get swamped every year during the peak summer tourist season (tourism is the states 2nd largest industry). Arriving early (late spring) or late (early fall) can alleviate some of the pain for those determined to hit Jersey’s beaches.

Winter is the prime tourist season for the northwestern part of New Jersey in the so-called “Skylands”, where the skiers and snowboarders hit the slopes.
