Get Outside & Explore New Jersey!

Many years ago, the beauty of this state inspired me to explore everything that NJ had to offer, and to capture everything that I was seeing. This inspiration to explore grew into a need, or even a passion, to share what I had found. With a little bit of hard work, this turned in to GetOutsideNJ.com. - Jeff C, GetOutsideNJ.com
