1. You’ve stepped back in time.
New Jersey is home to some of the most crucial historical moments this country has seen, and we work hard to keep this history alive. You can help harvest crops at Howell Living History Farm, tour an iron works community like Allaire, or walk around a battlefield. George Washington spent more time in Jersey during the Revolutionary War than anywhere else in the country. At Johnson’s Ferry on Christmas Day you can watch a reenactment of the famous Washington Crossing, or you can visit the Princeton Battlefield where you’re more likely to run into picnickers and kite-flyers than men and women in colonial garb.
