Best sunrise and sunset spots in New Jersey, according to our listeners
There is no better way to start your day than to wake up and watch the sunrise, especially in the summer in New Jersey.
Our mountains can offer great views if you’re up for an early morning hike. The best spot, in my opinion, would be Mount Tammany. But you can check out my list of listener suggestions of the best hiking spots in NJ to find one near you.
The beaches in our state also offer so many great vantage points to watch the sunset.
For as long as I can remember, my Mom would rent a beach house in Beach Haven on 32nd street right across from Howard’s. One of our favorite parts of this trip was walking to our sunset spot, my mom with a glass of wine in a solo cup. Beach Haven also has benches at the top of the beach entry point where you can just sit and enjoy the sunrise or sunset.
Watching the sunrise and sunset is probably one of my favorite memories of summertime, and I know I can’t be the only one!
I asked our listeners where their favorite Sunrise and Sunset Spots are in New Jersey, and the overwhelming winner seems to be Cape May, but you can check out all their suggestions below:
