New Jersey Topography

New Jersey was named for the Isle of Jersey in the English Channel.  Northern New Jersey's forested Skylands region encompasses the Kittatinny Mountains and features a good number of lakes.  The fertile Piedmont lies to the southeast, blending into the pine and oak forests, cedar swamps, and marshlands which characterize southern New Jersey.  The southeastern half of the state is coastal plain and its barrier islands draw vacationers every summer to enjoy the white sandy beaches.  Principal landmarks include Morristown National Historic Park and the Edison National Historic Site.  Popular recreational areas include the Delaware Water Gap and the Pinelands National Reserve.  For New Jersey travel and tourism information, visit the official New Jersey tourism site and New Jersey Atlas.
