About Me

Anyone who knows me knows me I am a proud born and raised Jersey Girl. I’ve been wanting to start a blog about New Jersey for quite some time in an effort to combat the negative views created by those ridiculous television shows Jersey Shore and Real Housewives of New Jersey. After this week’s terrible fire that affected the boardwalk in Seaside Park and Seaside Heights, I want to make sure everyone knows how great this state is!

So I hope you will come on this journey with me as I show you all that is great about my state.

This is my New Jersey.

    I’ve been celebrating family for 28 years with a yearly Family Reunion. Most of us are from the Monmouth and Ocean County area. I was just wondering if you could refer a nice park for my upcoming 29th reunion in July. We have ages 1-93 so I have to take the ages in consideration. We’ve had reunion at Ocean County Park for the past 5 years.

    Thank you in advance,
    Mercedes

      How wonderful! Two locations come to mind immediately. One is closer to you than the other. First, think about Monmouth Battlefield State Park. This preserved area represents one of the largest battles of the American Revolution. There are a variety of different events that take place there and you can get special event permits. Check out: http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/parks/monbat.html for more information. The second is the Great Swamp of Morris County. The name is deceiving in that it isn’t just a swamp. There are plenty of great areas to explore and enjoy. You can also get permits for special events such as birthday parties and family gatherings. Go to: http://www.morrisparks.net/aspparks/gswampmain.asp for more information! Hope that helps!
