  • 24 Ocean City Boardwalk The Travel Channel gave Ocean City the title of "the No. 1 family beach community in the country." Surfer Magazine named it one of the Top Ten American Surf Towns. In 2008, Frommers named it one of its Top Destinations. There are two and half miles of boardwalk with eight blocks of family amusements. You may want to enter one of city's famous contests, such as the Miss Crustacean Beauty Pageant, the Twins Contest or the Hermit Crab Day festival. At the Music Pier, concerts are performed throughout the year and it is also home to the Ocean City Pops. I do wish the town would change its name though, so not to be confused with Ocean City, Maryland. Ocean City.
  • 25 Lambertville Founded in 1705, this cozy, old river-town is the Antique Capital of New Jersey. Carriage rides, restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries and a view of the scenic Delaware River and Lambertville's Pennsylvanian sister city, New Hope, on the opposite shore. The architecture of the town is anchored by Federal and Victorian buildings. Lambertville Station is a restored 1800s train depot which is now an inn and restaurant. There is the 1816 Marshall House, home to the Lambertville Historical Society. River Horse Brewing Company offers tours and tastings. Also, the Delaware and Raritan Canal cuts through town, offering visitors the opportunity for a nice stroll along its tow path. Lambertville.

    The longest waterfall in New Jersey, the Great Falls drop 77 ft. The National Park designation occurred in 2009. Prior to that it was a National Historic Landmark District. Alexander Hamilton was fascinated with the potential of the great falls, and together with the Society For The Establishment of Useful Manufactures helped to make the district around the falls an early American industrial success story. Colt Mill is also located on the site of the park. This is where Samuel Colt first created his repeating firearm in 1836. Paterson.
