Get to Know the Regions

Skylands Region

Come to where New Jersey touches the clouds. As home to High Point State Park—our tallest natural peak—it’s little wonder this region is known as the New Jersey Skylands. Travel over the hills and through the woods to make your escape into the timbered and rugged terrain that includes our slice of the Appalachian Trail.

Gateway Region

Nestled along our northeastern corner, this region is the threshold to an urban oasis steeped in history and culture. Meet the globe’s mightiest icon for freedom, the Statue of Liberty. Enrich your soul with a show at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. And embrace a culture of comfort food in the world capital of diners. 

Central Jersey Region

For a revolutionary visit, look no further than the Central Jersey Region – where George Washington and his troops turned the tide of the American Revolution over Ten Crucial Days. Leap from your seat and cheer for its performing arts and sporting events. And, best yet, give in to your locavore cravings at the farm-to-table eateries, foodie festivals, working farms, produce stands and craft breweries that make us The Garden State.

Delaware River Region

Follow the flow of water to monumental American Revolution sites, quaint riverside towns built around bustling main streets and wineries that invite you to slow down and sip from the fruits of the land. Or embark on an outdoor adventure that delivers an adrenaline rush on—or along—the mighty Delaware River.

Shore Region

Encompassing the majority of our shoreline, this region delivers seaside splendor, coastal farmsteads and nautical emblems. Sink your toes into the soft white sands. Take a bite of fresh produce at humble roadside stands or sophisticated farm-to-table restaurants. And climb to new heights at an iconic lighthouse.

Greater Atlantic City Region

Over a century ago, brave horseback women dove from Atlantic City’s Steel Pier into the ocean more than 60 feet below. Today, the region invites visitors to dive into eclectic nightlife, upscale spas and shopping, celebrity chef–owned restaurants, lifestyle resorts and a wide variety of outdoor activities for the whole family.

Southern Shore Region

A haven for no-cost summertime fun, several of this region’s beaches offer free access to visitors. Families will enjoy the award-wining coastal flair of Ocean City and the non-stop excitement of The Wildwoods. For a more serene experience, Cape May’s Victorian charm harkens visitors back to a more tranquil time gone by.
