New Jersey isn’t exactly the first state you think of when it comes to skateboarding, but it’s more popular here than you think.

My 3-year-old son has a ton of interests right now and they change every day, but he’s becoming more intrigued with active sports, and the other day, he asked me for a skateboard.

As a millennial, the only thing I know about skateboarding is Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater video game and the big chunky Element skater shoes.

Also, my son is 3, not 13, do you know how much a skateboard is? So, to Five Below I went.

But there’s a chance he will want to continue this as he gets older and aside from teaching him how to skate in our driveway, I went to find the nearest skate park in our area.


It turns out that there are a ton throughout the state, who knew?
