So you’re planning to travel to New Jersey for a wedding, and you want to make the most of it. Read on to learn our 4 best travel tips for guests attending a New Jersey Wedding.
Plan for Jersey Weather
When you travel to New Jersey, you have to be prepared for all sorts of weather. Particularly if you are attending a spring or summer wedding in New Jersey, you need to be prepared for the possibility of chilly weather. Be sure to pack a shawl or sweater to cover your arms if you plan to wear a sleeveless or short sleeved dress. For the days you’ll be exploring Jersey, pack in layers so you can adapt your outfit to fit changing temperatures.
Make The Most of Your Trip
You’re traveling to a wedding, but if you’re going to be in NJ anyway, you might as well enjoy it. There are tons of things to do from beaches and hiking to amusement parks and casinos! Check out TripAdvisor’s top 10 lists by category to find the perfect activities to extend your NJ trip.
Choose The Best Accommodations
Accommodations have changed in the past ten years, and you’re no longer locked into finding a standard hotel that is hopefully in your budget. If you have family and friends you like spending time with who are also traveling in, why not take the opportunity to create a bit of a reunion trip with your accommodations. Websites like Airbnb and HomeAway allow you to rent entire homes for your stay. You can split the cost with other travelers and save money by cooking meals at your rental. Don’t want to stay with others? You should still check out what they have to offer. You might be surprised by the vacation home gems available to rent.
Be Prepared for Traffic
Weekday traffic in New Jersey can be horrible, and it’s not much better on the weekends. If you’re not used to dealing with traffic, try to stay close to the areas you plan to frequent or consider travelling with a friend who doesn’t mind the traffic. You can also use popular apps like Lyft and Uber to get around without having to fight traffic yourself. Just be prepared for the increased cost due to heavy traffic.
Regardless of where your NJ trip takes you, be prepared to enjoy the beautiful Garden State. If you are prepared for the Jersey weather and traffic, you’ll have a wonderful time.
