Local Highlights for Retirees Living in New Jersey

Endless Entertainment: Snowy mountain ranges, sandy beaches, and vast expanses of farmland — there’s an often untold beauty of New Jersey. And there’s also easy access to exciting major urban areas. After all, it’s the only state where you’re just an hour’s drive from beaches, mountains and ski resorts, the Jersey Shore, and one of the greatest vacation destinations in the world, New York City. With entertainment options rivaling those of nearby NYC, as well as close proximity to historical Philadelphia, it’s easy to see why New Jersey is a good place to retire. Concerts, coffee houses, or the attractions of Atlantic City… it’s all here in world-class style.

Beaches: The sandy shores of NJ are some of the top vacation destinations in the country, with people spending tens of thousands of dollars to rent beach houses for a few weeks or even the whole summer, every year. Retiring to a NJ retirement community means you won’t have to go far to enjoy them, even as others travel great distances (and in great parking lots of traffic). 130 miles of coastline dotted with sandy beaches and cute little beach towns. You’ll have fun exploring them all, right down to the crown jewel at the southern tip of the state: Cape May. From Sandy Hook to Cape May, each has its own unique charm. Saltwater taffy, endless miles of boardwalk, and a hometown vibe are just some of the reasons the New Jersey Shore is a national treasure. 

History: Once you see all there is to explore, you’ll know why historians call New Jersey the “Crossroads of the American Revolution.” And did you know NJ is home to a historic zinc mine? Visit the Sterling Hill Mining Museum and explore one of the oldest mines in the United States. Battlefields, mines, lighthouses, historic villages - it’s all here, dating all the way back to the birth of our nation.
