America & Artisans: Tour a colonial village, Battleship New Jersey, large-scale art installations, Liberty State Park (Ellis Island) and the New Jersey State Museum.

Fame & Fortune: Discover the intriguing people who comprise New Jersey's "who's who," ranging from Frank Sinatra to Bruce Springsteen, Thomas Edison to Albert Einstein.

Glitz & Charm: Explore two very different seaside gems—first, the hot spots of Atlantic City, and then the Victorian charm of Cape May.
