Sandwiched between New York City and Philadelphia, New Jersey is one of the nation’s most fascinating states. This piece of the USA puzzle is home to brilliant minds, musicians, artists, chefs and athletes. Despite hosting America’s first baseball game and the invention of the incandescent lamp, the vast majority of our country can’t seem to separate us from Snookie and DJ Pauly D.
