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 checked them off, let us know and we’ll send you a sticker!
Keansburg Fishing Pier
There’s nothing like a long exposure shot of a New Jersey fishing pier. Dust off your filters and get shooting!
Sunset at Popamora Point
Since this spot is facing Sandy Hook Bay to the west, you’re uniquely positioned for sunset.
You’re also at the beginning of Henry Hudson Trail, so take a stroll there to see what you can see, as a bonus spot!
