I'm from Jersey, you from Jersey? What exit?
I don't like that, but I do chuckle a little bit every time I hear it. This can be answered many ways and have many meanings.
New Jersey is known to be the most densely populated state in the Union. There are several distinct regions, with major highways that are known worldwide.
Regions include the Skylands Region in the northwest, Gateway Region in the northeast, Shore Region in the east, Greater Atlantic City Region in the southeast, Southern Shore Region in the south and the Delaware River Region in the southwest.
New Jersey Turnpike is the most heavily traveled road in the country, links the great state of New York and the George Washington Bridge at the northern end to Delaware and the Delaware Memorial Bridge at the southern end.
Garden State Parkway runs from Cape May in the south to the New York Thruway in the north.
Atlantic City Expressway connects Philadelphia and Atlantic City.
Interstate 195 connects Trenton and Belmar at the shore.
We go to the "Shore," not the "Beach." The beach is at the Shore.
New Jersey is the Garden State, known for its vast areas of farmland and outstanding crops, home of the world's best tomatoes and sweet white corn. Apple and peach orchards continue to produce some of the best.
We are not just a suburb of New York and Philadelphia. And we've got some fantastically scenic and twistilicious roads to ride. Less than a day's ride from almost anywhere on the eastern seaboard. A great place to live!
I live outside of Philadelphia, in the Delaware River Region, near Exit 4 of the Turnpike. What about you?
