New Jersey is a state that offers such a breath of experiences that families can enjoy.  No matter whether you’re looking for an adrenaline rush at an amusement park, places to experience wildlife, or a lazy day at the beach, New Jersey has it all.  From the mountains of the Skylands to the farm lands of the Delaware Valley to the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, families will find kid-friendly adventures abound.  Fortunately, families can now find the recommendations from other families about which attractions, hotels, and restaurants are great for kids of different ages.

We’ve got the ball rolling, how it’s time for you to add your two cents.

Here’s what Trekaroo families have amassed on New Jersey:


The Folks Who Made it Happen

A special thanks to Beth Keklak  – Trekaroo’s Destination Guroo for New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. 

She has been the champion behind all the efforts to turn New Jersey orange on the Trekaroo map. Beth is a Jersey girl through and through, never having pumped her own gas, always living within 10 minutes of a mall, and knowing where to find a good slice of pizza.  Besides spending countless hours searching out all the fun spots to highlight for families in New Jersey, she married her Jersey grown husband and they are raising their three beautiful kids at the Jersey Shore.

However, she wasn’t alone in efforts. 90 other Trekaroo families have pioneered with their reviews of New Jersey’s kid-friendly spots before today.
