Cape May, NJ

New Jersey: a place that few people outside of the state think highly of, and I am guilty of that too. I lived here once before and took it for granted — but not this time!

NJ has something that most east cost areas don’t — untamed beaches and salt marshes. Only here can you drive for miles on asphalt roads that become submerged at high tide and end up on a beach.

If you’re going on an adventure as such, I recommend bringing someone that appreciates the beauty as much as you do. Find yourselves there, cause when no one else is around all you have is each other. And when the fun is over remember the good times, especially during the bad.

For the most part, Cape May holds all of these gems but there are other parts of this state that have great secrets, like the Pine Barrens or the Delaware Gap.

If you are looking for a new adventure in a place that is familiar, go off the beaten path and find the adventure that awaits there. All you have to do is remove your old self from it in order to find it.
