Check out Fall Foliage on the Highways and Byways in South Jersey

Beautiful fall leaves are at their peak in South Jersey, so it's a perfect time to head out and drive the Scenic Byways of the Pine Barrens. Get a good local map to map out your trip. We took the Southern Loop and the next day the Great Egg Harbor Loop. Our next trip will be the Mullica River Loop- Smithville-Port Republic-Sweetwater-Batsto-Green Creek- New Gretna in Atlantic and Ocean County.

There are some good restaurants along the way that I will mention later. Take time out of your busy life to enjoy the beauty around us. Go to my blog for comments and questions.

Check out  for peak foliage in the Northeast:

More about the Pinebarrens Byways:

Cape May/Cumberland County

The Southern Most Loop takes you up Rt. 50 in Seaville, (Dino's Diner, great food) to Rt. 49 in Tuckahoe. Make a left on Rt. 49, (you'll go over the new bridge). After DiLuzio's farm make a left on 548, then a left on 605. Then make a left on 550.  You are now in Belleplain. If you have extra time you may want to turn right (Down a bit)  into the Belleplain State Forest and see the lake. Or else stay on 550 into the town of Woodbine.  At the light in Woodbine 550 goes left and then turn right down Woodbine-Ocean View Rd(550).  Stay on 550 (You will pass the Woodbine State School and (further down on your right will be the Beef n Bear Tavern, a great place for some food. The Camppark next door is home to the $89 Million Lottery winner) then you will see Dennisville Rd. 610 at the light. Make a right on Dennisville Rd. Travel  along until you reach Dennisville enjoying the leaves along the way.

When you get into Dennisville, you will see many historical houses. (On Dec. 19 will be their Christmas Historical House tour, a lot of fun!) 610 intersects with Rt. 47 at the light. Make a right on Rt. 47. You will pass Dennisville Lake on your right.

If you have time take Rt. 47 north to Port Elizabeth. Don't go on Rt. 347, take the scenic Rt. 47. You are near East Point Light House, (not open) if you want to Google it) But on 47, you will pass Bayside Prison and when you get into Port Elizabeth check out the Maurice River Diner on the left. (After 347 reconnects. It was packed when we went past)

If you want to explore Millville stay on Rt. 47, or else turn onto Rt. 548 which will take you back to 49. I must say there was nothing on Rt. 548. Really the middle of nowhere! But it gets you back where you started. When you hit Rt. 49 turn right and it will take you to Rt. 50 turn right. (Over an hour ride)

Atlantic County

Another great loop is the Great Egg Harbor River Loop. Beautiful leaves as well!

Start at Rt. 9 & Mays Landing Rd. 559 in Somers Point. Go west on Mays Landing Rd. 559 all the way into May Landing. This is a nice road with beautiful leaves.  You will get some nice views of the water. (Before you get to Mays Landing you will see Sugar Hill Subs on the left, a great place to stop.) When you get into Mays Landing turn left at the light. You will pass The Sugar Hill Inn on the left, a dressy place, so I would make reservations if you stop here.  The next light turn left 559 the lake will be on your left. There is a parking lot on the left if you want to stop for pictures. 

If not proceed to Rt. 50/40 light and make a left. Past the McDonald's at the light is Rt. 50. Turn left and this will take you all the way to Rt. 9 in Seaville, about 20 min. ride. (On the left you will pass Atlantic County Park. In Corbin City on the right, you will pass The Buck Tavern and L's Restaurant . Both great restaurants.) Take Rt 50 (you will see more colorful leaves) to Rt. 9 North (left) will take you into Marmora. Make a right on Roosevelt Blvd and take the Parkway North back to Somers Point. (Over an hour ride)

Some Good Advice

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone for everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come....

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

I'll Add: 1. Don't forget sunscreen and a hat.

2. Eat your fruits and vegetables.

3. Wash your hands often.

4. The best thing you can ever do for your children is love your spouse.

5. Don't spend more than you make. 

6. Put God first.

7. Make quality time with your spouse the highest priority.

8. Discpline your children while there is still hope.

9. Eat meals together.

10. Attend all the 'back to school nights' for your children.

11. Make sure you know your children's friends. We become who we hang out with.

12. If you feed something it will grow, if you starve it, it will die. 

13. Sometimes the hardest step is the first. Take it.

14. Something is always better than nothing. Especially true with diet and exercise.

15. Use it or lose it...especially, exercise and mental activity.

16. Don't be afraid to say you're sorry.  Forgive 70 times 7.

17. Always wear your seat belt. Don't drink and drive!
