Region map

If northeastern New Jersey constitutes most people's image of the state, Salem and Cumberland Counties are the least likely to spring to mind when thinking of New Jersey. This is an area of farms, small towns, tidal marshes and winding streams, with only the Cumberland cities of Bridgeton, Millville and Vineland to break the bucolic atmosphere. In many of the Tidewater towns, time seems to have stood still; the entire village of Greenwich is a historic district. As you might expect, history abounds here, at Fort Mott State Park, where fortifications built as a Spanish-American War defense maintain a ghostly watch on the Delaware, at Hancock House, where colonial troops were massacred by British soldiers during the Revolution, and at many of the 18th-century patterned-brick houses still standing throughout both counties. New Jersey's first zoo is also here, as is an authentic Western rodeo.

Most attractions are linked to their websites. Information given is as accurate as possible, but it is always advisable to check with the facility. The descriptions noted for each attraction are for information only and do not constitute an endorsement.
