Sure, you're bound to find gardens in the Garden State, but there's much more to New Jersey than its nickname. New Jersey, which is easily accessible from most major Northeast cities, has rolling hills and mountains, unparalleled Victorian charm in small historic villages and 127 miles of white sand beaches.

It is also home to "America's Favorite Playground" -- Atlantic City -- which hosts 37 million visitors each year for business and pleasure. It's in Atlantic City where you can stroll the world's first boardwalk and enjoy non-stop casino gaming. 

Take a step back through time to New Jersey, one of the original 13 colonies and a place where history lives on. New Jersey saw more than 100 Revolutionary War battles and it has many museums and historical sites documenting its unique heritage. The state was also home to the nineteenth-century's greatest inventor, Thomas Alva Edison, and visitors can now tour his sprawling research laboratory located in West Orange.

Historical Note: New Jersey was one of the first state's to complete its own Constitution in 1776 and was one of the state's most affected by the ineffectiveness of the Articles of Confederation.  While trying to hold onto the rights of smaller states, New Jersey representatives played a major role at the Constitutional Convention creating a stronger government. (photo courtesy of NJ Tourism)
