The state of New Jersey is located in the United States along the north-east coast and is bordered by New York, Pennsylvania and Delaware. The state is known for its dense population and large city, while at the same time being well known for their beaches. New Jersey is typically broken up into five regions which include North-eastern New Jersey, which is in close proximity to New York city. The Shore, which is also known as Jersey Shore, which is comprised of the eastern and south-eastern shoreline, along the Atlantic. Northwest New Jersey, which is known for its mountains and woods. The Pine Barrens which as the name suggests is an area rich in pine and oak forests is the region in the southern interior of New Jersey. Finally, there is the south-west region.
New Jersey is often seen as a state of geographic diversity. There are the mountainous regions in the north-west, the predominantly city life in the north-east, the expanse of forests in the south, while along the eastern coastal areas are pristine beaches. The difference in climate is also quite interesting with winter months often bringing large amounts of snow, while in the summer months it's not unusual to see temperatures remain in the high 80s.Read more
