Often overshadowed by glamorous New York City to the north, the state of New Jersey is a breath of fresh air for travellers who like to be within travelling distance of one of the world’s most famous cities while having the opportunity to enjoy more peaceful surroundings. The region offers a magnificent coastline that, despite being renowned as a party destination, is a great holiday getaway for families. Further inland, travellers will find magnificent hiking trails that will delight even the most demanding nature lovers in a wonderful medley of natural surroundings ranging from the impressive Great Falls of the Passaic River to Pinelands Natural Reserve. If you prefer to lose yourself in a maze of quintessential American towns head towards Princeton, home to the iconic university.
Renting holiday accommodation in New Jersey
New Jersey is home to a wide range of holiday accommodation to suit all tastes. Renting a holiday town house or apartment will allow you to live amongst the friendly local community and give you access to the best source of information that you won’t find in any travel guide: the local people.

Where to stay in New Jersey
There is no more authentic way to experience New Jersey than living in your own home away from home. Can you imagine being able to enjoy large town house with a manicured private garden where the children can play to their heart’s content or a modern luxury apartment with stunning views over Manhattan for the price of a cramped hotel room? New Jersey’s ample range of accommodation is perfect to ensure that your family holiday becomes a treasured experience. A holiday rental with HouseTrip will ensure that you have the opportunity to meet your neighbours who will tell you where you can find the finest seafood restaurants in town away from the tourist crowds as you share a chilled bottle of wine with them after a busy day exploring New Jersey.
New Jersey with the family
The state of New Jersey is wonderfully child-friendly. The little ones will love to explore Newark Museum, New Jersey’s biggest museum, with a planetarium, a mini zoo and countless art and science exhibits as well as an IMAX cinema. Or perhaps you might prefer to take them to Atlantic City to enjoy some bowling and a few rides at the funfair before heading to the beach for a refreshing dip in the ocean. If you ever need a bit of urban flavour, just remember that New York City is only a short distance away. Are you ready to experience this delightful area?
