New Jersey has so much to offer. You can dip your feet in the Atlantic Ocean from any of the many Jersey Shore towns, to sipping wine from any of the vineyards throughout the state. Looking for a more urban scenery or how about some street art, then you have Jersey City and Hoboken to thank for that!
Growing up in New Jersey I couldn't wait to go on a vacation and visit another state, yet now I love exploring my backyard and I am thankful for these amazing websites that share all the happenings going on in New Jersey!
Jersey Bites, founded in 2007 serves as your one-stop-shop for restaurant reviews, grand openings, food events, and much more. Ever since finding them on Twitter I have been a weekly visitor to the site, especially the "Foodie Things To Do" a current listing if all Food & Wine events, festivals and competitions.
One blog, two blogs, or even ten blogs about the same area will always be different as the voice behind the website is different. Next up, Growing In Jersey City is sharing the stories of locals, the best places to eat, and what's happening throughout Hudson County. Read about Jenna, the editor and founder of GIJC here. She is also all over Instagram bringing to life the area through insta-stories! Taking a fitness class or trying a new restaurant, the team will bring all the information straight to you!
Maybe you're a mom out there and looking for something to do with the kids or need some kid friendly ideas of where to travel locally and what to do. Sarah, from Finnegan and The Hughes was one of the first blogs I read religiously. She is a native to New Jersey and lives in Southern NJ with he husband, two kids, and adorable dog! Check her out on Facebook and Instagram.
Now it is your turn? Do you have local websites for your state that you go to when you are ready for your next adventure? Share them in the comments!
