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!
Paterson Great Falls
A national park site, Paterson Great Falls sits in the heart of Paterson. You can visit from the top or bottom, but no drones! The falls are amazing at any time of year.
Bring your tripod to try your hand at long exposure waterfall shots!

Jungle Habitat WAS ONCE a zoo and safari park that housed 1,500 animals. It is now abandoned, but according to Atlas Obscura:
The park grounds are now a popular hiking and biking spot in a large public nature area. Visitors can still see the large sign scaffold as well as the remnants of animal enclosures and structures.
