Now that summer is unofficially over, many smart travelers choose this time of year to take a vacation. Prices have dropped as the weather is better than ever. Crowds are reduced and getting around is much easier… BY CAR.
If you’ve taken a flight recently, you know how crazy things have gotten, from long delays to multiple cancellations.
The good news is that there are plenty of great vacations within driving distance of New Jersey, not to mention the Jersey Shore that you can almost have to yourself, especially during the week.
Here in the northeast part of the country we are blessed with so many amazing places to see and some special resorts to enjoy probably during the best part of the year. Here are some of the places you can visit within hours of The Garden State.
