13 coolest roads for a New Jersey drive (Opinion)
In Born To Run, Bruce Springsteen sang about being "sprung from cages on highway nine" in "You Can't Catch Me." Chuck Berry sang about his adventures on the New Jersey Turnpike. It's like you can't sing about New Jersey without including a Jersey road.
There are so many cool roads in New Jersey that if you're looking to be "sprung," this is the perfect place to be driving. Dennis Malloy pointed out the "Roads That Will Test Your Diving Skills," which are great for the advanced driver who likes a lot of aggravation in their Jersey driving experience.
But what about those people who would like to take a nice Jersey drive? The kind of drive that you think about when you hear the phrase "Happy Motoring" or "Sunday Drive."
I always thought when it comes to being behind the wheel in New Jersey, there are two kinds of people. Drivers who just want to get where they're going as quickly as possible, and motorists who drive like they're just sightseeing without a care in the world. When these motorists are out in rush hour, that's where the fun begins.
Between what you're paying for gas as well as the price of a new car, you deserve every now and then to take a nice relaxing drive. Here are some roads you may want to try.
I always loved Navesink River Road and Locust Point Road up to the East Point and then around the Highlands.

The Assunpink areas. Open the windows or put the top down or better, on a motorcycle….. great scenery and roads…
537 East through Colts Neck to Red Bank
Along the Delaware River area into Hunterdon county. Ride it often on the Harleys
I used to cut through Dennis Township to get to the Jersey Shore gigs when I played in bands.
