America is filled with so many beautiful places. One of my "bucket list" items is simply to see more of America. I want to see the beautiful locations our great country has. I have traveled to many places in the U.S. but there are still so many places I haven't been able to see. In a recent article by Cosmopolitan, they looked at the most beautiful places in all 50 states. "America is full of incredible sights, both natural and manmade"

As we turn to the Cosmo list and what they selected for us here in the Garden State, as our most "beautiful place" we see that it is located in Ocean County. According to Cosmopolitan, New Jersey's most "beautiful place" is Island Beach State Park. "New Jersey's Island Beach State Park, which spans nearly 10 miles of the Barnegat Peninsula, is a popular place for ocean swimming and surf fishing. And with its maritime forests, tidal marshes, and rolling sand dunes, the undeveloped barrier beach provides an incredible backdrop for these and other recreational activities."
