Jessica Currie, au pair from Australia
“I love New Jersey because I believe it has an exciting range of terrains in close proximity, from beautiful beaches and food truck festivals in the Summer, to haunted hayrides and pumpkin picking in the Fall you are never left with nothing to do. NJ is the perfect mixture of suburban and city life, it’s also a bonus that New York is not far away when big events are on as well! I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in America.”
Tamara Ehrhardt, au pair from Germany
“I love Jersey’s countryside and all of its parks, especially the Marine Park in Red Bank. Red Bank itself is actually worth a visit, it’s such a cute little town with all its musicians and alternative flair, tiny restaurants and cafes. You can reach everything within walking distance and people are just so sweet and friendly! Anything can happen in Jersey!”
