New Jersey

After the Dutch and Swedes settled here, the English came and wiped them out and took control. The state was then given to Berkeley and Carteret. It was named New Jersey after Carteret's home, the island of Jersey.

New Jersey is great for you if you love mountains, tons of lakes and ponds, and warm to hot summers followed by cold, snowy winters.
