Twin Lights

Said to be one of the best light houses in the US.

Sandy Hook

It's a national park that boarders the Highlands, I'm not sure how to list it as it doesn't come up when I try to put it as a separate location? Anyway, the photo is of its light house. He's a link for more info on the "Hook" as we call it. http://www.nps.gov/gate/shu/shu_home.htm


I find the SandyHook bay area a nice place to relax. It's the most northern part of the Jersey Shore and is really nice to see by boat. NYC is just a 20 min. ride by boat.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Parts of the town are still run down.
  • Cons:It's changing for the better, fast!
  • In a nutshell:At the top of the north Jersey coast it is becoming our new "Gold Coast"
