New Jersey Has One of the Best State Parks in America
When I saw the headline, "The 30 Best State Parks in America" on thrillist.com, I was curious about whether a state park in New Jersey would make the list.
According to the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the state has about 50 state parks, including Liberty State Park, Cape May Point State Park, and Princeton Battlefield State Park.
Well, the NJ park that I thought might make the list did make the list. According to thrillist.com, Island Beach State Park is one of America's best.
Thrillist.com gives Island Beach State Park high marks for its "pristine beach" and the fact that you can find "relative solitude" in the country's most densely populated states.
