This is the Most Popular Tourist Attraction in New Jersey
Here's a hint...it's NOT Lucy The Elephant.
A new survey conducted by MONEY magazine and TripAdvisor tracked the most popular tourists attractions by state, using data from online bookings for attractions, tours, and activities in 2017.
Turns out the Whale & Dolphin Watching Cruise on the Delaware Bay in Cape May is tops in the Garden State.
The day on the water lends itself to dolphin and whale sightings just 10 miles off the coast. Maybe you didn't know you can spot species like humpback whales, manta rays, hammerheads, seals and bottlenose dolphins. The trip is narrated by the captain offering an education as well as a photo/video worthy landscape. Plus, there's a snack bar, so I'm in. I can't believe I've never been on a whale watching cruise, so I'm definitely putting it on my Summer of SoJO bucket list.
In case you were wondering, the MONEY/TripAdvisor survey found the most popular tourist attraction in Pennsylvania is the Philadelphia Bus Tour around the City of Brotherly Love. In Delaware, it's Cape Water Tours and Taxi. And in New York, it's the Empire State Building.
