Central New Jersey: Beyond the Shore

Friday, May 18, 2012

New Jersey is most famous as the home of Jon Bon Jovi, the stomping ground cast of the Jersey Shore, and being next door to New York City. It is not widely considered a destination for vacationers or conventioneers, but that is about to change.

Central New Jersey is out to prove that the Garden State has more to offer than its coast. There are a wealth of arts and cultural and entertainment attractions to be enjoyed if you venture inland. You can ride the roller coasters at Six Flags, laugh the night away at one the many comedy clubs, buy fresh produce at the New Brunswick Community Farmers Market, or see the newest exhibit at the Grounds for Sculpture Museum.

If you are planning a convention or off-site meeting, the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center should be on your short list of locations. It's spacious, close to the airport and public transit, and a stone's throw away from the best hotels. 

Central Jersey is an attractive travel spot for visitors on business or leisure and a less expensive alternative to its sister across the the Hudson River. For the family on a budget, staying in Central Jersey is an economical choice and, with NYC a short train ride away, you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

My family vacationed in NYC last summer and we visited some friends who live in Sayreville, NJ. We only stayed for the day, so we didn't get to enjoy any of the sites. But on our next trip you better believe we will be taking advantage of the myriad of things to do in Central Jersey.

That's good to know. I'm sure after visiting NY we're going to need some more sites to see.

It is funny, because I had never heard of Jersey Shore, the show. So we were playing the new Apples to Apples game, Sour Apples, and I played Jersey Shore for something good. Everybody thought I was joking and I got the sour apple. I was so confused, I was like, "Isn't Jersey Shore supposed to be a fun place to visit?" My kids had no idea what I was talking about and my husband started laughing, realizing the confusion. Their generation thinks of the lamest TV show in the history of mankind when they hear Jersey Shore (as does my husband, it ends up), while I think of a great vacation spot (my husband was able to retrieve this image from the crevices of his memory, but still the show dominated).

I am from "the shore" and it is nothing like seaside heights where the show is filmed. It was a pretty place right on the beach where i have great memories :) My parents just sold their house.
