Third District: Affordable tourism options are available in the region

Today’s Sunbeam – There’s still enough summer remaining for New Jerseyans to plan a fun and inexpensive day out with friends, family or both in the Gloucester, Salem, and Cumberland counties.

Sen. President Steve Sweeney, Assemblyman John J. Burzichelli, and Assemblywoman Celeste M. Riley would like to offer some affordable tourism options for residents during the upcoming summer months.

“Our district is home to many cultural historic and recreational sites,” Sweeney said. “We encourage our constituents to take full advantage of our great local businesses and attractions that our region has to offer when they are looking for activities to do with family and friends.”

For more information on local attractions, the Third District legislators recommend visiting the State of New Jersey’s tourism website at www.visitnj.org.

“Many of these local attractions and historical sites are not only entertaining and fun, but affordable,” Riley said. “While supporting our local businesses, residents would inevitably save money on gas, tolls and other travel expenses that come with traveling to out-of-town destinations.”

This website offers a wealth of information and helps users plan inexpensive trips to various New Jersey destinations. The site also allows users to browse attractions by region and updates a monthly list of fun events and activities for the summer season.

“In addition to getting a good family value, our region is also home to many wineries and theaters that serve as the perfect leisure activity for adults looking to enjoy an evening or a relaxing afternoon out,” Burzichelli added.
