I have visited New Jersey on various trips. These are the highlights:

Girl Scout Trip in 1988
During the summer after 6th grade, our girl scout troop took a bus trip to DC, Philadelphia, and New York City. I'm pretty sure that we stayed overnight in New Jersey while visiting New York City.

Visiting Shannon and Ken in New Jersey (2001)
I took various trips to New York City for several years starting in 1999. On two of those trips, I stayed with my friend Ken in New Jersey and visited with Shannon who also lived near Manhattan. We took the train or PATH into Manhattan for sightseeing and spent some time on the Jersey side as well. Both of these trips were in October of 2001.

East Coast Roadtrip in 2004
Melissa, Doug, and I decided to take a roadtrip in 2004 since we all wanted to see Madonna perform in New York City. We decided to make it a true roadtrip complete with stops in each state that we touched along our way and wacky roadside attractions. See the trip report for more details.

First Poker Trip to Atlantic City in 2004
The poker group took its first of many trips to casinos to play live poker in August of 2004. This was my second time playing poker in a casino since we played some in Atlantic City on the East Coast roadtrip earlier in the summer. See the trip report for more details.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Poker in Atlantic City in 2004
The first trip went well, so we decided shortly afterwards to book another one in October. We were able to stay at the Tropicana this time for the poker rate, which was much more convenient. I also saw Big Bad Voodoo Daddy in concert. I had been wanting to see them for a while, and it was a great show! See the trip report for more details.

Tropicana Junkets to Atlantic City in 2005
The poker group took three junkets sponsored by the Tropicana which included airfare, lodging, and transportation for a weekend in Atlantic City. See the April, October, and December trip reports for more details.

The Wildwoods in 2005
Greg and I met Brooke and Andrew in Philadelphia and drove to The Wildwoods in July 2005. We ended up cutting the shore portion of the trip short. See the trip report for more details.

One Last Pre-Baby Poker Trip in 2007
Gabe and I were itching to take one more casino trip before the baby arrived. We went to Atlantic City with Brad where we met Clint and played poker, of course. See the trip report for more details.
