If you have the opportunity to head to America, check out small but perfectly formed New Jersey.

A State which neighbours larger cousin New York, NJ is the place to head for a heady combination of city life, beachside days and vibrant nights. It’s the perfect place for groups such as families holidaying together to head to.

Whilst it’s 47th of the 50 states in terms of area, you’ll still need to have transport to get you from location to location. Whilst you could combine trains, buses and the occasional taxi to cover your itinerary, a surprisingly cost effective way is to hire a limousine. One unique vehicle which will seat even the largest of family groups is a party bus. Complete with an on board fibre optic show and disco, it’s a memorable way to hit the attractions.  Armed with a list of where to visit and a reserved party bus rental NJ, here you have the perfect recipe for holiday fun.

Regions

There are five regions in New Jersey, all with very different characters and places to visit:

  • Gateway; urban with great travel connections to Manhattan
  • Jersey Shore; beach communities with a laid back way of life
  • Delaware River; home of the State capital city – Trenton
  • Skylands; great for sporting events and winter ski holidays
  • Southern Shore; resorts and holiday destinations for families

Cities

There are 10 cities in New Jersey and all have very different vibes. Some are very urban whilst others are ocean resorts with Victorian era roots. If you’re a sports fan, visit Hoboken on the Hudson River where you can visit the site of the first baseball game ever played in the world.

For access to a multitude of tourist attractions, it has to be a trip to Jersey City. It’s just a stone’s throw across the Hudson from Lower Manhattan and you can visit the enormous Liberty State Park before taking a ferry to Ellis Island to where the Statue of Liberty dominates the skyline.

Beaches

There are beaches a plenty in New Jersey as well as theme park style piers and long iconic boardwalks. Jersey Shore is the place to head for views of the sea set against differing waterside backdrops.

Cape May is the oldest seaside area in the whole of the USA but is still as illustrious as it’s always been. Visit the lighthouse, relax on the sand or take a sightseeing tour past the century-old beach houses which make up this fantastic destination.

For families travelling together, a day at Ocean City is a must. It’s 2.5 miles of golden sands bordered by an entertainment filled boardwalk and there’s something for everyone whatever the time of day or night.

For thrilling rides as well as sitting with a bucket and spade, the Wildwood beaches have the widest areas of sand in New Jersey. Rollercoasters dominate the scenery and when you step on board one you can combine views across the top of the horizon before coming hurtling down to be at eye level with those playing volleyball or walking their dog.

New Jersey is an incredible location so ensure everyone books as much time off work as possible to make it a holiday to remember. Travel by party bus and you can leave the driving to the expert chauffeur. All you then have to do is choose where you want to visit next, what great local food you want to sample and where you want to head to once the sun sets for a great night out.
