Jersey is also filled with some truly amazing small towns, that if you drive too quickly, you could pass right by!

A while back I told you about Jersey's friendliest small town and planned the perfect day trip for you. 

Another thing that Jersey is filled with is beautiful state parks.

One of my favorites is Island Beach State Park.

But have you ever visited Jersey's smallest state park?

It may be totally worth the day trip, especially because this tiny park apparently has one of the best views in the entire state.

The park is also full of history, in fact, it's the very spot where George Washington stood in 1777 to keep a watchful eye on the British, according to Only In Your State.

You'll have to make the trip out to the small town of Watchung New Jersey and take a hike through gorgeous Washington Rock State Park.

According to Only In Your State this park is amazing to hike not only in the summer but also when the fall foliage sets in.
