Photography Scavenger Hunt:
Get Your Camera Ready for Our New Jersey Scavenger Hunt!
Want a little adventure? We’ve created a scavenger hunt for every county in New Jersey. You can see them all here.
So grab your camera, download the map below, and head our to get some new photos and explore some new places!
We realize that your favorite photo spot might not be on the list, and that’s ok! These maps and lists are designed to get you to some new spots you might not have explored in the Garden State.
Once you’ve crossed all the spots off the list, let us know and we’ll send you a sticker!
Perhaps one of the most iconic photo spots in New Jersey, visit the Red Mill (actually a museum!) in the town of Clinton to get this shot. Drones allowed! See more with our guide.
Round Valley Reservoir
The perfect destination for kayaking/canoeing (and other boating), hiking, and more, visit this giant reservoir. Bring your bug spray!
And droning is allowed here too, so take full advantage!
NJ Festival of Ballooning
*We know this festival is postponed until next year! But we can still enjoy the throwback images until then.
Ken Lockwood Gorge Wildlife Management Area
Get some cool photos along the Raritan River’s South Branch in this wildlife area.
