The Garden State of New Jersey awaits

New Jersey is often overshadowed by its more famous neighbor, but those who do make the effort to cross the Hudson are treated to a treasure trove of surprises. Buzzy Jersey City has transformed itself in recent years, with trend-setting eateries and bars seemingly popping up on every corner. They don't call this the Garden State for nothing. Outside the metropolis, more than a quarter of the area is farmland, while the rest is made up of miles of sandy beaches and pine forests. The great outdoors here woos travelers with scenic hiking trails and mountain biking routes.

Surf's up in New Jersey

If you head down to the Henry Hudson Trail, you'll find a 22-mile path built over several former railroad lines. Here, you can pass some seriously scenic parts of the state on the back of bicycles. It might not be the first place that springs to mind, but the Jersey Shore has got some of the best Atlantic swells along the Eastern Seaboard. Grab yourself a rental board and hit the water to practice your pop ups. There are few things better than kicking back on the banks of one of New Jersey's lakes to fish for your supper.

A present from France to New Jersey

Let's start with a biggie. Not many know this, but the Statue of Liberty actually lies within the border of New Jersey, meaning the sight of this magnificent 19th-century gift from France is just as good from the shores of this state. Talking about shores, down in Cape May, the country's oldest seaside resort, you'll find a series of beautiful beaches overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Newark Museum is the largest in the state and houses a particularly fascinating collection of African artifacts. Have you got the kids in tow? They'll love getting up close to the 8,000 marine creatures at the Adventure Aquarium.

New Jersey city living

Jersey City buzzes year-round, but the rest of the state is decidedly quiet during the winter months. As the snows thaw, the spring can see some pleasantly warm weather, perfect for challenging outdoor hikes. Summer sees the biggest influx of travelers, particularly along the coast, where families come to escape the humid city and cool off in the sea. If you're planning to nab a New Jersey vacation rental between July and August, try to book up as early as possible. As the year ticks through to fall, travelers begin to return home and you can benefit from a dip in rental prices.

Hear the howl of wolves in New Jersey

Other than the odd backyard critter, you're not going to find much in the way of wildlife in Jersey City. For close wildlife encounters, you could try the Lakota Wolf Preserve, where you can learn about these wild pack animals. If you're staying overnight in the nearby campground, you'll hear their haunting howl. Out in the wilds, this relatively small state houses a surprisingly large number of creatures. If you look up to the treetops, you could spot any number of the 325 recorded bird species, while the forest floors are full of bigger beasts, from black bears to beavers.
