New Jersey revamps tourism website

New Jersey Tourism has revamped and revitalized its website ——featuring compelling images, brighter graphics, and more intuitive navigation. “The new web site makes it easier than ever to plan an eye-opening New Jersey vacation,” notes Commerce Secretary Virginia S. Bauer, “and we’re fortunate to offer an unparalleled mix of getaway options in our state—a week at the beach with the kids, a romantic retreat in a welcoming Bed & Breakfast, a girlfriends’ getaway to spas and shopping, a thrilling escape to Atlantic City’s sizzling nightlife and gaming, or a relaxing road trip through the Garden State’s historical attractions.”

“The Internet has become one of the main tools for planning vacations and booking accommodations,” adds Nancy Byrne, executive director of The New Jersey Office of Travel & Tourism. “While our web site has always had terrific content and broad access to New Jersey’s vacation and getaway options, this new web site makes it even easier to search for specific things to do or simply browse for interesting ideas. We invite those looking for a vacation experience to log on to the new—we’re confident they’ll be pleasantly surprised with not only the web site, but the state’s unexpected pleasures as well.”

The reinvigorated web site features everything a busy mom or an undecided vacationer needs to plan the perfect New Jersey vacation: accommodations search; a new comprehensive section on the Jersey shore; listings of events, attractions, and festivals, including “101 Fun Things to Do in New Jersey;” links to traffic and weather updates; “how to get here” information, including driving directions and access via public transportation; and an interactive itinerary-building tool.
