Before you think to overlook New Jersey as a travel destination, think again.  This state sandwiched between two of the most historic cities in America, Philadelphia and New York, offers a diverse array of destinations for families.  The Jersey Shore and Southern Shore are undoubtedly a big draw for families.   Quaint beach towns like Cape May will charm you with their Victorian architecture, while lighthouses and wildlife experiences beckon.  The agricultural areas around the Delaware River are dotted with small communities where the pace of life is relaxed.  Enjoy outdoor activities and the simple life by visiting the many farms.  The land opens up as you travel north to the Skylands area where beautiful vistas abound.  A perfect setting for a Castle!  Skylands Castle will marvel your little girls.  Which of these wonderful experiences will you add to your family’s bucket list?
