When 2017 came to a close, we reflected on some of the amazing places that the New Jersey Community traveled to (Tag #NJspotsTravels) and where we suggest checking out in 2018. These are our Top Travel Destinations for 2018. Living in New Jersey we are lucky to be near some major airports including Newark, Philly, Atlantic City, and Washington DC. If you are not into flying or prefer to road trip, there are plenty of options for that too! With that many options it’s time to start planning your next trip. Here are some of our favorites we’ve shared. (more…)
Ah, the city of Brotherly Love. While some snowballs thrown at Santa may have negatively stereotyped the city to some, I am here to tell you Philadelphia is an amazingly beautiful place! Philadelphia is one of the oldest cities in the country with centuries of history.

I was thinking of going to NYC or Philly but thought otherwise with the holiday rush.
