On the doorstep of New York, New Jersey is often eclipsed by the oneupmanship of the Big Apple. However, don't hesitate to follow the Americans on vacation and tour its glittering coast, lined in sandy beaches and seaside resorts steeped in clichéd charm, as far as Cape May, a delightful little town renowned for its Victorian villas. On the way, stop over at Atlantic City and gamble a few dollars in the casinos.
Afterwards a change of scenery awaits as you leave the coast. A smart yuppie atmosphere prevails on the campus of prestigious Princeton University and its surrounding towns.
As you explore the green countryside as far as the Delaware River, ideal for water sports, you will understand why New Jersey is nicknamed the "Garden State".
