A group called Social Media Moms is holding its inaugural retreat this June in Atlantic City. On its website, the group–a collection of tweeting, blogging, social media-utilizing moms–says it chose Atlantic City “to help NJ restore its revenue by showing the world that Sandy may have damaged it, but it is still alive and kicking.”
Today the group is celebrating New Jersey on Twitter with the hashtag #jerseylove. New Jerseyans past and present are taking to Twitter to proclaim their love for all things New Jersey, such as the shore, the pick-your-own farms and the blueberry wine (who knew? I didn’t).
As a five-year resident of New Jersey, I still have not seen much of the state, including the famous shore. But I have found much here to love: the beautiful old towns like Montclair and Maplewood, the fresh corn and tomatoes in summer (and our own lovely farmers’ market), the great parks and recreation areas, the beautiful rolling hills of Hunterdon County, the many interesting characters that populate this state. There is still much more for me to see and learn about Jersey.
How long have you been in New Jersey, and what do you love about it?
