The Hook is also home to the (guess the name?) Sandy Hook lighthouse (right? who would have thought?). There you can sign up for a tour and walk your way to the top of the of it; tours are offered for free every hour from 1:00-4:00 pm, and they DO fill up.
A few miles off exit 102 on the Garden State Parkway and you'll find yourself in a beautiful city filled with iconic landmarks, an attractive beach, shops, inexpensive bars, and some impressive restaurants.
Looking to escape the concrete jungle of the urban areas in New Jersey or even New York City? We have some of our favorite State Parks to visit in the State of New Jersey that are perfect for hiking. We have included some of the recent photos that our community has shared with us at these locations. If you are looking for further information or have any questions, be sure to email us!
One thing that the Garden State is popular for is the coastline and the beaches that gather hundreds of thousands of beach-goers every summer. But while some may be trying to win prizes at the boardwalk or jump on an exciting ride, there are others that continue to explore New Jersey shore and the lighthouses that are streamed along the coast.
