The Many Views Of Living In New Jersey

The Many Views Of Living In New Jersey
Plymouth Rock, NJ

There are pros and cons of living in a small town, just like living in any other kind of town. But one of the best things about living in a small town is the incredible views. New Jersey has it all — the mountains, the valleys, and even the beach. Who wouldn't want to live here?

1. The Mountains

The mountains in New Jersey are useful in all four seasons.

Winter — Does anyone enjoy skiing as much as I do? New Jersey is home to some of the best ski resorts on the east coast. Ski resorts use the snow to sculpt the mountain to accommodate the various types of people that visit.

Spring — Hiking is the best, especially in the spring. There are many different mountains to explore the wide open trails throughout parts of New Jersey. The view of the Delaware Water Gap is one of my favorite views to hike and look at.

Summer — Hiking up the mountains during the summer is also very popular. The Catfish Fire Tower is located on top of the mountains in Hardwick, New Jersey. From the top of the tower are the most gorgeous views overlooking Warren County.

Fall — As we all now, New Jersey has many trees and with many trees comes the changing colors of the leaves. Fall is the best time of the year just because of the beautiful views with the many different colors on the trees.

Along with the many different views of that mountains have to offer, there are also many flat, wide open fields that take over New Jersey.

2. The Valleys

Whether the ground is covered in three feet of snow or filled with green grass after a rain storm, there is something amazing to look at. Both images are taken from my backyard. How amazing is it to look out your back window and see the breathtaking views of New Jersey in any season.

If you are the type of person that does not enjoy hiking in the mountains or camping out in the valleys then New Jersey is not for you. Nope, just kidding. New Jersey even has amazing beaches!

3. The Beaches

And no, I am not talking about the members from the TV show "The Jersey Shore." New Jersey has nearly 130 miles of beaches ranging from Sandy Hook to Cape May. Each town along the shoreline has attractions that are impossible to miss, including boardwalks, amusement parks, and even some water parks.

No matter where you are in New Jersey there are breathtaking views to see. I will forever be thankful for the views that living in a small town have gave me.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
