First, let me say that I have lived my entire life in New Jersey. I have traveled a lot but New Jersey is always home and has been. I love traveling and seeing other parts of the country and the world, but the Garden State is what I love and know, especially here at the Jersey Shore.

That being said, there are a lot of folks who are leaving or looking to leave New Jersey, for whatever reasons. According to a Patch article, more people left New Jersey in 2021 than any other state in America. "

In the Patch article, "According to a new study conducted by United Van Lines, more people moved out of New Jersey in 2021 than moved in -- and more people moved out of the Garden State than any other state in the country. That is nothing new, as New Jersey has topped the list in this study for the past four years."



So if you are one of those who are looking to leave Jersey here is an interesting article from Best Life, which shows the most popular destinations for people moving here in the U.S.

Check out their list of the most popular "zip codes" in America and see if one of these would be a place you might consider, if you split Jersey.

We hear a lot of former Jersey residents who have made their way to the "Sunshine State" Florida and now call that home. The article by Best Life shows that Texas has 5 of the 10 most popular destinations, so is the "Lone Star State" the new Florida?
