Where is the State of New Jersey?
To find New Jersey, simply pull out your old map of the United States and check out the Northeastern area. It is bordered in the East and North by the famed New York State and to the South by the Atlantic Ocean. To the West, you’ll find Pennsylvania and to the Southwest, you’ll run straight into Delaware. It is one out of five States that make up what is called the Mid-Atlantic States on the east coast.
The Jersey Shore is not like the infamous Carmen San Diego, hiding and challenging people to find her. The Jersey Shore is a little place that is just a stone’s throw from some rather big named places that tourists often frequent. Many people don’t even realize that while they are on a fantastic vacation to the ‘Big Apple’, they are just a short train ride from the Jersey Shore. Many people don’t realize this but from New York City’s Penn Station for only a few bucks you can enjoy a scenic ride straight to the New Jersey Coast.
The NJ Transit’s North Jersey Coast Line train will take you as far as Bay Head, NJ. From there it will be a short taxi ride to Seaside Heights, where the Jersey Shore reality TV show is filmed. It costs about $12.50 for a one-way ticket and the taxi ride should only take about 20 minutes. The entire journey should take just a little more than an hour.
