Summer travel is just around the corner, and if you're still working on solidifying your summer plans, the time to do so is now.

I don't really feel the need to travel during the summer, living less than a mile from the Shore, in the summer that's where I like to spend most of my off time.

But if you are looking for something a little different to do this summer and a trip is in your future, you may want to check out a few places in Jersey that were ranked as some of the best travel destinations in the country this summer.

If you scroll a little further down the list, you may see a few familiar city's listed as well.

According to Wallet Hub, Jersey City and Newark ranked as the 12th best metro area to visit this summer.

I was shocked when I first read this, I thought there was no way that one of our amazing shore towns didn't make this list.

A Place like Asbury Park, Cape May, or Seaside Heights, should have made the list.

However, when you think about it Jersey City and Newark do have a good bit to offer, and you're in very close proximity to New York.

My sister lives near Newark and she loves it; there's always something to do and she's able to get a ferry or a bus into New York to catch a Broadway show whenever she wants.

By the way, if you're looking to move to Jersey, these are some great places for families!
