I love our New Jersey State Parks & Forests, they are truly a treasure our state has to offer. For $10 or less you can visit with your family to hike, bike, swim, learn and explore. After all of my visits I only really have one complaint about them.
There’s no New Jersey State Parks merchandise.
There are no special patches to collect. There’s no passport book to mark off where you’ve been. There’s no New Jersey State Parks and Forests travel journal. There’s no New Jersey State Park souvenirs other than ones you create yourself. Isn’t that crazy?
Some of my best family memories are from New Jersey State Parks. Other than trail maps, the best way my kids have to remember those experiences is through my photos. I have been determined to change that!
Last summer I set a goal to get to every New Jersey State Park before my first born leaves for college in a few years. But without a passport or travel journal there was no good way to document our visits. Instead, I have been just marking up my New Jersey State Park brochure with notes after we visit each one and of course blogging about them here.
In the back of my mind I was envisioning what a travel journal or passport book for our NJ State Parks would look like. I sketched notes on my notepad and in the notes app of my phone.
When the state-at-home order started I got to work on Jersey Family Fun’s first book, a New Jersey Kids Activity Book. Check it out here. Going through that process only made me more determined to create a travel journal for New Jersey State Parks.
Those weeks of staying at home continued. Finally, one weekend I said “Enough is enough!” New Jersey State Parks were open! I took to the computer and went from notes in a notebook to a New Jersey State Parks and Forests travel journal.
I’ve learned from our first experience of developing a New Jersey Kids Activity Book. The New Jersey State Parks and Forests travel journal is ready. It’s the first of its kind. You can buy it NOW! You can buy it as an e-book to print at home. You can order a printed spiral bound copy and we’ll ship it to your home. You can order it on AMAZON as a paperback book.
However you choose to purchase our book, please know that I am so incredibly thankful for your support of Jersey Family Fun (started in 2010) and your decision to support us even more by buying our New Jersey Kids Activity Books and travel journals.
With much appreciation,
