Jersey Arts Road Trip Guide Returns

The Jersey Arts Road Trip guide returns for the 2023 summer season to spotlight 10 towns throughout New Jersey that make ideal road trip destinations for visitors. The guide offers a mix of dining, nightlife, shopping and accommodations, as well as cultural experiences including theater and visual arts.

“The Jersey Arts Road Trip guide highlights a vast variety of unforgettable experiences you can enjoy in the Garden State,” said Adam Perle, president and CEO of ArtPride New Jersey. “Locals and visitors alike will find that the guide transforms their question of ‘Where should we go?’ into an enthusiastic ‘How soon can I get there?‘”

The Jersey Arts Road Trip guide features popular cultural attractions in 10 New Jersey cities and towns including:

  • Cape May
  • Collingswood
  • Long Beach Island
  • Montclair
  • Morristown
  • New Brunswick
  • Newark

“New Jersey is iconic for its many brilliant shore destinations, but the artistic, musical and cultural experiences found throughout the Garden State are equally as vibrant, sought-after and engaging for visitors and residents,” said Jeff Vasser, the executive director of New Jersey Division of Travel and Tourism. “Cultural tourism plays an essential role within our state’s diverse portfolio, which continues to strengthen and gain incredible momentum. Last year alone, New Jersey welcomed over 114 million visitors who spent $45.4 billion in the state!”

Allison Tratner, executive director of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, agrees that the arts are a big business in the Garden State. “As drivers of tourism and the economy, these distinctive arts destinations help shape communities throughout the state, and make New Jersey an extraordinary place to live, work and visit,” said Tratner. “The Arts Council is thrilled to see how the Jersey Arts Road Trip has grown over the years, and we look forward to helping these cities and towns welcome audiences seeking the rich cultural experiences New Jersey has to offer.”

ArtPride New Jersey presents Jersey Arts Road Trip as part of its ongoing Discover Jersey Arts initiative designed to increase arts audiences in the state. The program is presented in collaboration with the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and is supported in part by funds from the New Jersey Department of State, Division of Travel and Tourism.
