An eclectic state home to many diverse people and languages including Spanish, Chinese, Italian and Portuguese to name a few, New Jersey makes for a diversified visit. Known as the Garden State, New Jersey is home to beautiful cherry blossoms as well as some stunning gardens and lakes, which gives lovers of the outdoors something in which to indulge. Along the shore there are also many vibrant cities which draw in thousands of visitors each year.
