Now we all know that I-95/the NJ Turnpike, Rt 3, Rt. 80, The Parkway, etc... are literal death traps, but that doesn't mean that New Jersey can't be a road tripper's paradise. Sure, it's better to run the length rather than the width of it, and yeah, it's not like it can compare to a cross country road trip but my personal favorite road is Rt. 206. It runs almost the entire length of the state and is known as the Disabled American Veterans Hwy. Along it you will become well acquainted with why New Jersey is called the Garden State as there are miles and miles of farms. During prime produce season you will not find better anywhere else and during winter the wide open snowscapes are a minimalist aesthetician's dream! Rt. 206 will take you from the northern mountains all the way down into Atlantic county were you are basically at sea level. During your drive you will find numerous accommodations in the forms of trucker inns, motels, and hotels, most of which are fastidiously maintained and have a quaint appeal to them. Use your head though, if it looks Bate's Motel-ish then just drive right along.
