On my last trip to the Jersey Shore, I discovered that we would be close to New York City. The Statue of Liberty has been on my Bucket List for a few years. My big problem is, after years of watching Law and Order, plus Blue Bloods I was a little apprehensive to go there.
I tried to find a hotel in Jersey City that would shuttle us over to the 9/11 Memorial or Battery Park so we could take a ferry to Manhattan. I looked into the subway, I heard the stairs were terribly steep. I also looked into taking a ferry over to Battery Park. It turned out that the hotel I booked in Jersey City was very close to the Holland Tunnel. After a long debate DH and I decided to use the Holland Tunnel.
With a map of where to park and how far it was to the 9/11 Memorial we took the tunnel. Found that it was fairly easy ride into Manhattan and just as easy going south. We found the parking lot and walked to the memorial.
If you had asked me last week what New Jersey is like? I would have replied "One long turnpike with many toll booths." That is what I remember about New Jersey last time I went out to Cape May.
This time we came through Philly to Camden and down #55 to Vineland. From Vineland we passed through small towns, byfarms and classic homes going down to East Point. But the directions to the lighthouse we,were given were for someone coming from the opposite direction, so we had to do a little back tracking. We also saw sheep, goats, and horses.
From East Point we went over to Cape May. The day is clouding up, with the promise of rain. Time to get up to Wildwood and find our hotel.
