So apparently we aren't supposed to vacation in New Jersey.

I don't know about you, but this comes as a total surprise to me!

Is New Jersey A Good Place To Visit For Vacation?

For as long as I can remember, going to the Jersey Shore has always been the highlight of my summer, ever since I was a kid.

We'd spend long weekends in Sea Isle City, Ocean City, and Lavalette.

There's just no place else like it!

But according to social media, we're not actually supposed to vacation in New Jersey.

You can ignore our gorgeous small towns, perfect for a weekend getaway, and forget about heading to Washington Rock State Park to soak up some seriously amazing views.

I always love hearing what Facebook has to say about Jersey.

Sometimes it's great, sometimes it's not, and sometimes it's just downright funny.

I have to hand it to the Facebook account Matt Surelee Charts because his map of what you're actually supposed to do when you visit each state in America is hilarious.

So what are you supposed to do when you visit New Jersey?

According to this map, you just come here to visit relatives!

Now, to be fair, when my wife and I travel to PA it's strictly to visit relatives, and it's the same shade of blue on this map that Jersey is. So maybe there's some truth to it?

If you think that map is kind of funny, check out Matt Surelee Charts' website cause he's got a lot of really funny stuff up there.

Between you and I, I think there's a ton of fun stuff to do in Jersey, but every now and then we have to just laugh at ourselves.

By the way, here's what the Bennies have to say about the Jersey Shore.
