5 Best Northwest New Jersey Summer Destinations


Let’s face it, we’re sick and tired of all the “New Jersey bashing” that goes on with late-night talk show hosts who haven’t a clue about what a great state this is. Sure, there are parts of New Jersey that are, shall we say, less than desirable. But every state in the U.S. of A has its own areas that Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau bigwigs would rather you didn’t know about.

Why do we care? Because we live here, work here, and play here. Like you, we know that there are tons of amazing things to see and do throughout our area. And to prove it, your friends here at your hometown Denville, NJ Nissan Dealer, Nissan World of Denville, have come up with our list of some the best places for a fantastic summer vacation in northwest New Jersey and elsewhere in the Garden State.


We’ve attempted to keep our list to destinations within a few hour’s drive of Denville and our surrounding communities. Oh, and one more thing. We’ve purposefully avoided recommending anything in or around New York City. After all, we’ve all been there and done that, how many times? And these trips are supposed to help you de-stress, not get caught up in all the non-stop kinetic cacophony that is New York. Of course, you’re welcome to go into the city if you’d like for your summer sojourn. But we suggest heading the other direction. Way the other direction, if you get our drift.

So gather up the family, get your gear together and let’s hit the road. Who knows what fun and excitement await around the next bend? Let’s start with a couple of places relatively close to home and then branch out from there.

Lake Hopatcong State Park

What’s more relaxing than spending a few days at this scenic lake that offers an abundance of fishing, dining, and lots of watersports to keep everyone happy? It’s a great way to cool off, too. May we suggest getting there in a beautiful, stylish, and versatile 2016 Nissan Murano? The stunning Murano features a fuel efficient, 260 hp, 3.5-liter V6 that gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg highway, available all-wheel drive, and a generous 69.9 cubic feet of space with the rear seats folded. Apart from the Murano’s incredible good looks, it features all the versatility and luxury appointments anyone could ask for. Innovative “Zero Gravity Seats,” for example, help reduce driver and passenger fatigue on long trips. And the Murano’s available predictive forward-collision warning system is a class-exclusive in this SUV category. And the Murano’s available Around View® Monitor alerts you to possible objects directly behind you. Another class-exclusive feature is an available rear USB connection with smartphone interface.

Allamuchy Mountain and Stephens State Park

Another great nearby destination for those outdoorsy types in your household is this beautiful state park located southwest of Stanhope. It features 9,600 acres of breathtaking landscape, 36 miles of trails, and the Musconetcong River that offers camping, fishing, and picnicking opportunities. We recommend getting there in the ruggedly handsome 2016 Nissan Pathfinder. With room to spare and a fuel-efficient 3.5-liter, 260-hp V6 engine with a best-in-class towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. The Pathfinder gives you three-row seating, 41.7 inches of 2nd-row seat legroom, and ample cargo capacity.
