Once you leave behind the busy freeways, you may be surprised to discover New Jersey’s farmland, forests, hills, and nature reserves. Whether you are visiting for work – the state is a big corporate and tech hub – to tour the university where Einstein used to teach – that’s Princeton – or to explore miles of wide, sandy beaches – hello, surfers – on the famous Jersey Shore, we’ve got you covered with these nice places to stay in New Jersey. Plus, catching a train to New York City, USA is as easy as – a big apple – pie.
This surf-themed boutique hotel is located in Long Branch, one of the more upscale areas of the Jersey Shore that is famous for its upscale restaurants and nightlife. Spacious rooms come with fireplaces, fully equipped kitchenettes, and Tivoli Bluetooth speakers – while bigger suites might come with soaking tubs, dining areas, and ocean-facing balconies. Sip cocktails at Bungalounge, which serves cocktails Thursday through Sunday – and displays exhibits by local artists. There’s also an assortment of games in the lobby like billiards and foosball – and you’ll also have access to Bungalow’s sister property, Wave Resort, with its private beach club, outdoor pool, fitness center, children’s playroom, plus a modern brasserie-style restaurant complete with a beach bar and nightclub.
