Considering traversing the Hudson to the "sixth borough"? We recommend it—the best things to do in New Jersey run the full gamut from scenic, meandering riverside hikes to punk rock flea markets. But if you're going to hop the MTA and PATH trains for a solid hour or more, you'll need some musical accompaniment—that's where we come in. This list of songs has some classics and necessities you'd expect—Ella Fitzgerald's "Jersey Bounce," John Pizzarelli's "I Like Jersey Best" and anything by Bruce Springsteen fit the bill—but there's also lesser-known contemporary indie bops. So get your directions to one of the best beaches in New Jersey and get listening!
