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!

Rutgers Gardens

Check out the bamboo forest and amazing plant life of Rutgers Gardens. It’s one of the most vibrant gardens in New Jersey — if we do say so ourselves! We even had a meetup here!

Check out more gardens, museums, and arboretums too!

Crabbing Bridge in Cheesequake Park
