Expériences côtières à New Jersey

Entre sérénité et effervescence, le New Jersey offre diverses expériences côtières. Le Island Beach State Park (le parc d'État d'Island Beach), qui borde l'océan Atlantique et la Barnegat Bay (la baie de Barnegat), est l'un des rares endroits du littoral à avoir résisté au développement urbain. Dans ce parc de 1 214 hectares, vous trouverez des programmes éducatifs, des sentiers, des zones de baignade et des belvédères pour admirer les oiseaux, en particulier les balbuzards pêcheurs.

Animées en toutes saisons, les villes balnéaires de Seaside Heights et de Cape May sont réputées pour leurs promenades au bord de l'océan, leurs jetées propices à la pêche, leurs activités et leurs événements tels que le Polar Bear Plunge et la St. Patrick's Day Parade et leurs festivals axés sur les fruits de mer et les barbecues.

La vie nocturne est sans pareille à Atlantic City, où la célèbre jetée mène les visiteurs aux casinos, aux boutiques et aux hôtels tournés vers l'océan. Passez du temps à Newark et à Jersey City pour vivre des expériences gastronomiques, magasiner et profiter de la culture. Combinez votre amour pour l'art et l'histoire dans des musées comme le Newark Museum, le Morris Museum à Morristown, le New Jersey State Museum and Planetarium à Trenton et d'autres lieux plus intimistes de l'État.

Le Garden State (l'État-Jardin), comme on aime le surnommer, s'apprécie en toutes saisons, que ce soit pour passer des vacances à la plage ou au ski, par exemple sur les pistes des montagnes Campgaw Mountain à Mahwah et Mountain Creek à Vernon. Les occasions ne manquent pas de faire du golf, de l'équitation, de la randonnée, de la paravoile ou encore de la pêche dans l'océan, les baies et les lacs.
