Description:
NJ is one of the 13 original colonies and is rife with history from George Washington to Thomas Edison's Laboritories. New Jersey has many things to appreciate, even to brag about. New Jersey may not have the Rocky Mountains, but it has the Delaware Water Gap and; while it does not have the Great Lakes, it has 230 miles of Seashore, numerous lakes, and reservoirs sprinkled across the state.
