10 Things Everyone Loves About New Jersey, Which Is Nothing Like 'Jersey Shore'

No, it's not all like the cast of "Jersey Shore."

10 Things Everyone Loves About New Jersey, Which Is Nothing Like 'Jersey Shore'
Natasha Trivedi

I love living in New Jersey. However, the state kind of has a bad rep. Although NJ might not seem like the best place to live, there's nowhere I'd rather be born and raised. This list would never end if I were to tell you all the great things about the Garden State, so here's 10 of them.

1. Six Flags Great Adventure

Yes, I know there are Six Flags parks all over America, and that they're all amazing. However, their New Jersey park is the best one, and I'm not just saying that because it's close to home. When an amusement park is home to the world's tallest and second fastest roller coaster, it's pretty tough to beat.

2. The Beaches

While the cast of "Jersey Shore" is nothing like what people from New Jersey are actually like, the Jersey shoreline itself is iconic. No matter which beach in New Jersey you visit, you are sure to have a great time.

3. Atlantic City

There's a reason why this vibrant town is a popular tourist spot. With a beach, beautiful hotels, shows, and casinos, no trip to New Jersey is complete without visiting Atlantic City.

4. New York City and Philadelphia

While neither of these cities are actually in New Jersey, most places in New Jersey are relatively close to both of these iconic places, making a quick visit to either an easy trip.

5. Princeton

Not only is it a bustling college town, but you could spend hours doing so many different things in this beautiful place. With the university, dining options, and shops, you could never get bored.

6. Carlo's Bakery

Yes, the bakery from "Cake Boss." It may take a while to get in, but I promise you it's worth it.

7. MetLife Stadium

Both the New York Giants AND Jets play at this (surprisingly enough) New Jersey Stadium. Even if football isn't your thing, this huge stadium is a cool place to visit.

8. Shopping

No sales tax on clothes? Yes, please.

9. Icons were born here

Do the names Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi ring a bell? Clearly, New Jersey is home to some pretty amazing people, just saying.

10. The Food

We kinda invented ice cream cones. You're welcome.

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
