New Jersey: Our Most Searched Attraction Is Surprising
To coincide with World Tourism Day last week, Bank Locations detailed the most searched attraction in every state. In New Jersey, the result was not what you would have expected.
Bank Locations analyzed Google search data of over 150 tourist attractions in America. “The results showcase the diverse preferences of Americans, ranging from iconic landmarks, amusement parks, museums, and the natural beauty of national parks and breathtaking landscapes,” Bank Locations stated.
As a result, this study found that national parks are the most searched attractions in the country. Geographical attractions and national landmarks ranked second as a category. Then, the outliers came to the forefront. This includes particular beach sites, amusement parks, and historical sites.
Bank Locations found Niagara Falls is the most common tourist attraction among the states, and the Garden State contributed to that statistic.
New Jersey’s Most Searched Attraction Is Niagara Falls
Although the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, and the Liberty Bell are a stone’s throw away, New Jersey residents are more interested in taking a longer trip. New Jersey was one of seven states where Niagara Falls was the most searched American attraction.
Although it is roughly a seven-hour trip, Niagara Falls is still driving distance any time of the year. Of course, you can still fly to Buffalo to lessen the amount of driving time. The falls are open 365 days a year for guests to visit. If you are there during a day of decent weather, you also have the option to hike on the numerous trails in the surrounding area.
Sure, the falls are the main attraction, but there are also a variety of restaurants to explore, including the Top of the Falls restaurant. In addition, one of the most interesting experiences here is the “Cave in the Winds.”
“Get closer to the Falls than ever imagined when you descend 175 feet into the Niagara Gorge and experience the power of the Falls from the Hurricane Deck,” Niagara Falls State Park explains.
