Up State New York Road Trip Ideas for Fall

Remember when you were a kid and your parents would pile the whole family into the old station wagon and take an impromptu day trip to Upstate New York?  If you were really lucky, your father might have turned it into a two-or-three-day event, complete with an overnight stay at a Howard Johnson hotel. Mom would pack a picnic lunch of sandwiches and a Thermos of coffee or hot chocolate.  A blanket was spread on the ground for this picnic lunch after everyone climbed out of the cramped car to stretch their legs and give Dad a respite from the driving.

New Jersey Road Trip Ideas for Fall

New Jersey is the fourth smallest state in the union, but has the eleventh-highest number of people.  In fact it has the highest population density (or number of people for the amount of land) in the U.S.  So here’s a hint – be sure to visit this state in the off season when the tourists have all gone home.

Because the Garden State is so small, it will take you approximately four hours to get from High Point, in the Skylands Region, which is the highest elevation in the state at 1,803 feet, all the way to Cape May Point in the south, but, unbelievably, if you cross New Jersey in an east to west direction, it can be done in just one hour.
