Awesome local drives around New Jersey
Coastal New Jersey is an ideal place to begin a road trip adventure. Here at Auto Image, we provide all the support our customers need to have a comfortable road trip to any of the amazing state parks, historical sites, coastal roads, or New York City destinations that are just a short drive away.
New York City
One of the most popular destinations in the world, New York City is just a quick drive to the north with hundreds of attractions and sightseeing opportunities. Take in the Statue of Liberty as you drive across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge on your way to one of the many popular restaurants for a late lunch. Enjoy a Broadway show before ascending the Empire State Building for a night view of the amazing city. Central Park offers several outdoor recreational activities and museums abound to fit every interest. An evening walking through Times Square will provide a variety of entertainment and delicious cuisine. With limitless adventures waiting for you in the city, Auto Image is there to keep your drive comfortable and enjoyable.
Hopatcong State Park
If a day away from the city is what you’re craving, turn on your favorite book and enjoy your car audio installation from Auto Image while you drive to any of the several state parks within a couple of hours’ drive. Scenic Hopatcong State Park offers water activities such as swimming, fishing, and boating on beautiful Hopatcong Lake, the largest lake in New Jersey. The park also offers hiking, sports fields and playgrounds, and beautiful picnic areas around the shores of the lake. A relaxing day spent enjoying the scenery and variety of this state park while enjoying some extra comforts in your car is what Auto Image is here to help you with.
Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge
If you’re looking for a little bit of a longer drive, Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge provides for some scenic drives with the opportunity to see wildlife along the way. When you need a break from the car there are hiking trails that offer a glimpse into a variety of natural habitats of the wildlife.
Fort Delaware State Park
For history buffs, a visit to Fort Delaware State Park is a must. The Union fortress that was built in 1859 and was home to Confederate prisoners of war is a quick half-mile ferry ride from Delaware City to Pea Patch Island. Once there you are transported back in time by guides in period costumes who show you how old-time blacksmiths made parts for the cannons, how they washed their clothes, and what the sound of gunfire was like. A day spent learning what life was like during the civil war is an adventure for the whole family.
Garden State Parkway
For a day filled with ocean views take a leisurely drive along the Garden State Parkway. You’ll see a variety of landscapes from coastal scenes to the iconic New Jersey Pine Barrens and several small towns with the opportunity to stop for lunch. For a short detour, we recommend a visit to the resort city of Atlantic City. Try your luck at a casino, enjoy the boardwalk and soak up some sun on the beach.
As you continue down the Parkway be sure to watch for those glimpses of the ocean and the beauty of the coastal towns. You’ll appreciate that window tinting you had done at Auto Image as you catch the sun off the waves and enjoy the views.
When you reach the end of Parkway you’ll be in Cape May, one of the oldest vacation resort destinations in the country. Once in Cape May, you might decide to make a weekend out of the trip and stay for a few days. You can catch a whale and dolphin watching cruise and enjoy the wildlife found out on the water. Or visit the wildlife onshore and go see the Jersey Shore Alpacas or do some bird watching. Cape May also boasts some of the best beaches along the Jersey coast to spend an afternoon soaking up the sun or cooling off in the waves. A visit to the Cape May Lighthouse and the Washington Street Mall is a great way to round out the weekend.
Whatever your passion, whether city, wildlife, beaches, forests, history or long coastal roads, we’ve got a lot to offer here in the Garden State. Make sure your vehicles are ready for every road trip with a variety of services offered by Auto Image. Auto Image of East Brunswick and Auto Image of Brick New Jersey is here for all your auto adventure needs.
