One of my absolute favorite parks to go to in New Jersey is Hartshorne Woods Park.

Located in Monmouth County, Hartshorne Woods Park has such a great mix of walking and hiking paths, picnic areas, and incredible views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

But perhaps one of the best things about this place is how much of an important role it played during wartime in New Jersey.

So for this go-around, we take a trip to Hartshorne Woods Park. And whether you're a history buff or not, this park is a must.

New Jersey's best tourist town for all 4 seasons

Lambertville was just named best winter destination in New Jersey. I wholeheartedly disagree. It is the best destination at ANY time of year.
