New Jersey, named after the island of Jersey in the English Channel, is nicknamed 'The Garden State' because of its lush green scenery and outdoor recreation. It is bordered on the north by New York, on the east by the Atlantic Ocean, on the southwest by Delaware, and on the west by Pennsylvania. Parts of New Jersey lie within the metropolitan areas of New York and Philadelphia.

To the east, along the Atlantic coastline, there are more than 90 miles of shoreline with beaches both bustling and serene. This area was devastated by 2012’s Hurricane Sandy, but much of it is bouncing back and recovering from the impact.

For those interested in the great outdoors, there is the 70,000-acre Delaware Water Gap along the border between New Jersey and Pennsylvania, which features around 37 miles of riverfront and tree-lined hiking trails.

There are a variety of cities and areas for retirees to enjoy in New Jersey. Atlantic City offers gambling, night life and amusement parks, while towns like Cape May feature some of the best beaches in the Northeast. Princeton, home of Princeton University, is famous not only for the college, but for famous figures such as Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Grover Cleveland who once resided there.
