Top Tagged #NJspots Spots on Instagram

While we love featuring photos from all over New Jersey, there are just a few places that keep popping up over and over again on our feeds!

These are the top spots in New Jersey that people tag us in, or use our hashtag for. In no particular order!

 

BARNEGAT LIGHTHOUSE

Are we surprised? It’s the most photographed lighthouse in New Jersey. Hell — it’s even on the beach plates!

This spot is so popular because it’s, well, a good looking lighthouse. It also is popular for night photography and because you can visit the top of the lighthouse (weather permitting). We’re sure its proximity to Island Beach State Park and Long Beach Island helps, too.

CLINTON'S RED MILL

Another unsurprising pick! The Red Mill’s popularity stems from the bright red color that is a favorite among photographers, especially in the snow. Read our guide to learn all about it.

ASBURY PARK

There is always something to do in Asbury Park, whether you’re downtown or on the boardwalk, which is what makes this spot one of the most photographed in the Garden State.

Check out our guide to some of the best places to shoot. Asbury is so unique because the old and the new blend together.

THE JERSEY SHORE

We hate to lump the shore towns together, but a TON of tagged pictures are people showing their sunrise or night photography skills out where there are less stars and less people.

Some favorites along the shore are he Belmar fishing pier, the jetty at Point Pleasant, the ferris wheel at Seaside Heights, or just the sunrise on the beach. Can’t get much better than that!

THE GW BRIDGE FROM FORT LEE

The most traveled bridge in the country is also the most photographed in New Jersey!

There are many vantage points to capture this bridge, including from Palisades Interstate Park and Fort Lee Historic Park, which makes this spot so appealing.

SANDY HOOK

We would be remiss if we didn’t list Sandy Hook, one of the most popular spots on Instagram in New Jersey probably ever.

The history and architecture draw people here, as well as the wildlife and beaches. There’s something to do year-round, which is why it’s so popular.

MOUNT TAMMANY

Our favorite hiking spot! You can’t deny that hiking to the top of a mountain can give you chills, and Mount Tammany does that, and more.

PRINCETON UNIVERSITY

If you’ve been here, you know why people take so many photos of it! The amazing history and unique architecture is the backdrop for awesome photos.

You can also explore in town, which is a giant plus when it comes to making a photo trip.

THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL BOARDWALK

The boardwalk in Vernon, New Jersey is so unique that it draws the attention of photographers AND hikers.

You can hike on a boardwalk trail (keep an eye out for a certain sticker!) or hike up to Pinwheel Vista. Either way, you can pretty much guarantee you’ll be snapping photos.

THE PINE BARRENS

The Pine Barrens, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, covers 22% of the state. So is it any wonder that so many amazing shots come from here?

It’s also home to several state parks and forests, so there’s always somewhere to hike. Just don’t run into the Jersey Devil!

CAMDEN WATERFRONT

What better way to check out Philly across the river than to visit Camden? 

There are so many amazing sunset shots over the Ben Franklin Bridge from the Camden waterfront.
