What do you think of when you think of a swan? Grace? Tranquility? Romance? New York doesn't agree.
When I mention New Jersey to people, the first thing they will inevitably bring up is "Jersey Shore" or "Real Housewives". New Jersey, unlike its cousin New York, seems to have acquired a bit of a, well, an 'unclassy' reputation, to put it mildly. You may be surprised to hear, however, that beyond the Guidos and Guidettes, New Jersey is an exciting, diverse state with a lot to offer a traveler looking for adventure. And all easily navigated by Amtrak!
