Born, raised and thriving in New Jersey. No jokes, no excuses, not even dignifying the TV shows. Maybe a little complaining (ok, yeah, taxes), but we’ve earned the right with well over a century of combined experience in this state, and after all, nowhere is perfect. Through the years, we’ve covered some decent Atlantic-to-Delaware territory, but there’s always more to experience and we’ve lately found ourselves feeling like explorers at home (“New Jerseyologists”) and, like Maxwell Smart, loving every minute of it. The gems are out there–sites, experiences, studies and curiosities–and they’re not even hidden. We’re finding them and sharing them here.
