Step aside Route 66 – the roads running through SJ’s Pinelands are some of the most scenic in the nation. The Federal Highway Administration recently designated the 130-mile Pine Barren Byway as a National Scenic Byway.

Of course, SJ locals were already well aware of the magic of the Pinelands, but now it’s official. The byway goes from the shore to Batsto, and it cuts straight through the Pine Barrens. It’s recognized for its cultural, historical, natural and – of course – scenic significance. State officials hope it will raise awareness of the area and inspire more tourists to get lost (so to speak) in the SJ wilderness. Road trippers will pass outdoor hotspots like the Mullica River, Batsto Village, Tuckerton seaport and the Cape May National Wildlife Refuge.
