5 Epic Road Trips in New Jersey with a Car Rental

Delaware Valley

If rivers, canals, and historic farms are what you’re after, the Delaware River Scenic Byway is a perfect choice. At about 33 miles long, you’ll travel through Lambertville, Stockton, and Frenchtown. This drive is beautiful all year!

Batsto Wilderness

21 miles long, this drive is perfect in the summertime. The Batsto Wilderness route runs through Batsto Village, the Swan Bay Wildlife Management Area, and the Wading River. This trip is also great for avoiding other drivers, as there likely won’t be too many others exploring at the same time you are.

Pine Barrens

If you’re looking for a longer drive, the 130-mile route along the Pine Barrens Scenic Byway is a great option. You’ll pass along wildlife refuges, a research reserve, and state parks. You’ll get a fair share of nature, that’s for sure. And this is an excellent trip to take in the spring or fall.

Kittatinny Ridge Loop

Fun to say, and even more fun to drive. The Kittatinny Ridge Loop is a 75-mile drive along the Delaware River. You’ll also be able to visit Milbrook Village and Turtle Beach.

Bayshore Heritage

Stretching 122 miles long, the Bayshore Heritage Scenic Byway passes by historic villages, farmlands, and several lighthouses. As you reach the south end of New Jersey, you’ll be able to witness the true beauty of the state.
