  • 72 Bruce Springsteen I'm not a big fan of The Boss, but I've heard some people like him and don't mind his hatred of the New York City Police or his annoying accent that nobody else in New Jersey has. Freehold, Asbury Park, Rumson and Colts Neck are some of the towns most often associated with Bruce Springsteen.

  • 77 New Jersey's Neotropical Birds According to the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife: "Neotropical migrants are birds of the Western Hemisphere that migrate long distances from wintering grounds in the New World Tropics (or "Neotropics") to breeding grounds in North America. The Neotropics are generally defined as the tropical regions of Mexico, and Central and South America that lie south of the Tropic of Cancer.
    There are 361 species of Neotropical migrant birds ranging from herons and raptors to swallows and warblers. Over 130 species breed right here in New Jersey, and nearly 80 of these are songbirds, many of which you can see in your own backyard during spring migration. If you are lucky enough to live near large forests, you can hear many different species in a chorus of song - these are usually the males singing to defend their breeding territories from other males and to attract females."
  • 78 Space Farms Zoo and Museum This may be the most eclectic attraction in New Jersey. This combination zoo and museum was founded in 1927. It has 100 species of animals—including tigers, lions, badgers, bears, bobcats, deer, elk, foxes, goats, jaguars, hyenas, kangaroos, buffalo, lemurs, leopards, llamas, monkeys, snakes, wolves and yaks. The largest private collection of North American wildlife in the world. Visit the famous stuffed remains of the Guiness Book of World Records' "largest bear in the world," Goliath. Eleven museum buildings house 50 antique cars and motorcycles, farm implements, early American tools, dolls, toys, clocks, tractors and American Indian artifacts can be seen in the multiple little museums on the property. Also, Space Farms has the second largest privately owned collection of antique firearms.
