the great falls

March 11, 2016

i've made a conscious effort to want to explore new jersey a little more.  we have found so many beautiful places that we never even knew existed.  a few weekends back, we took a short drive over to the paterson great falls.  i was actually so surprised when we arrived because it was just so beautiful!!  i had never seen the falls and to have such a natural beauty so close to home (in the middle of a city, nonetheless) was truly breathtaking to see.  a true diamond in the rough.

it was still kind of cold in these parts when we went but that day just so happened to be beautiful.  i think it was an extra nice experience because there weren't too many people around.  we hate going places that are super crowded with people.  we're little spoiled brats that like to feel like we own the place ;)  we spent a good two hours exploring around and i thoroughly enjoyed it.  waterfalls are my favorite, although i do like swimming in them, not just looking at them!

i've started following some jersey pages on instagram to see where the locals are going.  i love getting inspired by different people!  i want to compile a list of different places nearby that i want to check out this spring/summer season.  i'm definitely going to add a few old favorites to the list because some spots you just have to visit more than once!

  1. I've never actually been to Jersey, but wow, looks beautiful - you've got some great photos. I would really like to go at some point but I've found I'm actually less inclined to visit places closer to England/in England than places further away as I always feel I'd rather go somewhere hot haha! Great post though, like your way of writing :) Thanks too for your comment on my blog! I really like your blog ☺ do you want to follow each other on Bloglovin’ so we can keep up with each others’ posts?
