Why is living in South Jersey so great, that's simple - the location! You are central to everything! Whether you want to visit Washington D.C., Baltimore, New York City or Philadelphia you are always in close proximity for tons of cultural events, professional sports teams and fun filled activities for people of all ages.

South Jersey



 

Where do we start? From the farm markets, local town festivals to the Zoos and Aquariums, there is always something to do in South Jersey. Enjoy fine wineries, 5 star restaurants, luxury resorts and casinos, whatever it is you are looking to do, odds are there is a place for it in the area.

Below is a list of activities, this is by no means comprehensive but a great start! For even more information check out VisitSouthJersey.com.

 

Cowtown Rodeo: This real Saturday night rodeo, located in a quiet corner of New Jersey that looks more like the Great Plains than the most densely populated state in the U.S., has been running since 1955. Bucking broncos, bull riding, ladies' barrel racing, and more. 

Sunset Beach: just west of Cape May, prospect right on the beach for fabulous Cape May Diamonds, see the remains of the concrete ship Atlantus, and take part in the moving Evening Flag Ceremony.

NJ Motorsports Park: opened in July, 2008: located on land that was part of the Millville Airport, this contains several tracks for road cars and go-karts. Not on the Great Places Video.

Leamings Run Gardens: 22 separate gardens, each with its own theme, plus a log cabin and farm animals. Here, there are "You May Walk on the Grass" signs! A wonderful, relaxed place, even the kids will enjoy!

Millville and the Arts Center: or, link here: it's not in the Great Places video, but it's pretty neat--several art galleries, a couple of good restaurants, and everything's open late on the 3rd Friday of the month.


Cape May-Lewes Ferry
: you can take a 70-minute salt water "almost ocean" cruise and leave your cares behind (if you want to be a foot passenger, you can leave your cars behind, too). It's more than just a mode of transportation. It's a pleasant part of the trip. If taking your car, reserve early!

Lucy the Elephant: a 65-foot high wood and metal behemoth calmly surveys the Atlantic Ocean in Margate near Atlantic City!

Cape May: capital of Victorian gingerbread architecture and gracious living.

Wheaton Village, now known as WheatonArts: glass art museum, re-creation of a 19th century glass-manufacturing factory, plus crafts center; see glass-blowing demonstration, pottery throwing, stained glass cutting, and a train ride for the kids. Make your own glass paperweight. Last but not least, several gift shops with some very nice glass items, jewelry etc, one of a kind items, very wide range of prices; a real life-saver for us married guys at birthday, holiday and anniversary times!  

Millville Airport: site of Millville Army Airport Museum, is revisited periodically by World War II airplanes and the pilots who flew them.

East Point Lighthouse: a small treasure on South Jersey's "Other Coast".

Hereford Inlet Lighthouse: working lighthouse, museum and gift shop in North Wildwood.

Fort Mott: "Stealth fort" along the Delaware River

Finns Point: Confederate graves in New Jersey soil

NJ State Aquarium at Camden: fish, seals, marine exhibits, just across the river from Philadelphia.

Indian King Tavern: historic museum where NJ's Great Seal was designed

Haddonfield's shops: commercial expression of an elegant lifestyle

Fortescue: "Weakfish Capital of the World";  weakfish is a sea trout - Fortescue is all about fishing

Delaware Bay Day: oyster-shucking contest, and the A.J. Meerwald, a restored oyster schooner you can board and sail

Greenwich (South Jersey pronunciation: GREEN-which):  quaint town in which the Tea Burners' Monument stands as a testimonial to South Jersey's own version of the Boston Tea Party

Mullica Hill: great place for antiques

Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge: wild shorebird sanctuary within eyeshot of Atlantic City

The Noyes Museum: contemporary American art, and a collection of carved wood decoys in a nice setting

Marine Mammal Stranding Museum: rescued seals are nursed back to health and released; lots of big, soulful eyes here!

Atlantic City Race Course:  See the horses in action (in May only); no more website for them, but try (609) 641-2190 for more info

Cape May Lighthouse: 199 steps to the top, and what do you see?

Cape May Point State Park: great place for a nature walk, at the base of the Cape May Lighthouse. You take a trail through the woods and reeds, then end up on the beach, where there's a concrete gun emplacement from WW II that's (literally) standing taller every year. A very unique and wonderful place.

Emlen Physick Estate: quick look at how a "person of quality" lived at the turn of the century

Cape May County Park & Zoo: this Zoo is the greatest! It's been recently expanded to over 80 acres; the animals have lots of room to roam, and so will you!

Cape May Seashore Lines: historic Budd diesel cars ply the rails between the Cape May Zoo and now, Cape May.

Ocean City: is called America's Family Resort; it has a very nice, family-friendly atmosphere. A good antidote to what we see in the news day after day.

Salem County Historical Society Museum and Historic Salem's Market Street:  local people in colonial dress, romantic gardens, Salem's Historic Oak, and the Hancock House Revolutionary War massacre site.
