New Jersey: City Glitz and Seaside Charm

Discover the nation's largest theme park, oldest working lighthouse, biggest IMAX dome theater, and the only elephant designated a National Historic Landmark (aka Lucy the Margate Elephant)—plus the largest observation Ferris wheel in the world.

They're all located within New Jersey's 7,790 square miles. For the fourth smallest state, New Jersey packs in plenty of activities and attractions to enthrall tour groups of all ages and interests.

Inbound groups can shop labels at New Jersey's impressive collection of outlet and upscale shopping malls, taking advantage of zero percent sales tax on clothing and shoes.

For student groups, tours of Revolutionary War sites, Princeton and Princeton University, Thomas Edison's laboratory, and Liberty State Park (with ferry service to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty) make learning come alive.

Family groups find adventure on whale- and dolphin-watching excursions, kayaking trips, ziplines, and roller coasters. No tour is complete without that quintessential New Jersey experience: strolling the boardwalks (salt water taffy a must!), taking a self-guided Frank Sinatra walking tour in Hoboken (make a stop at Carlo's Bakery, of Cake Boss fame), or having breakfast all day at one of the Garden State's iconic diners.

From quaint seaside towns to scenic state parks, farm festivals to wine trails, urban cultural centers to 130 miles of shoreline, New Jersey's for groups.
