New Jersey's famous pine barrens have been memorialized in television shows like "The Sopranos", but urban development has put this unique landscape in jeopardy. Jackson Township residents who like to connect to the outdoors can enjoy acres of unspoiled pine barrens in the Colliers Mills Wildlife Management Area, which is located within the township's borders. In addition to enjoying pine barrens, visitors to this park can explore miles of trails that run through oak forests and wetlands. This area is used for hunting, so visitors who simply want to walk around will need to exercise caution during hunting season.
Six Flags Great Adven
The Jersey Shore is just a short drive away from Jackson, but the township itself is home to what some might consider a more appealing attraction in the form of a massive amusement park complex. As a whole, Six Flags Great Adventure covers more than 500 acres of land, making it one of the largest amusement parks in the world. In addition to many thrill rides, the park also has a safari park with exotic animals. The park grounds are also home to a water park known as Hurricane Harbor, making this a fantastic amusement destination that can cater to a wide variety of tastes.
Jackson Premium Outle
Everyone likes a good deal when they go shopping, and Jackson residents are lucky to have local access to an outlet mall that is typically considered a venue for savings. The Jackson Premium Outlets is part of the Premium Outlets chain of outlet malls, meaning there are some big-name brands included in this local chain outpost. Outlet malls typically carry merchandise that is not sold in the tenant stores' regular retail locations, meaning it is possible to get savings on some unique and hard-to-find merchandise, giving Jackson Township residents a fashionable advantage.
