For teenagers residing in New Jersey, there are a number of ways to spend time. In New Jersey one can enjoy the beach, take a walk on the boardwalk, and visit a waterpark. Teenagers can choose to tube, kayak or raft down the Delaware River, drive a race car or even visit a Wild West theme park. And of course, living in New Jersey offers easy access to all New York City has to offer. Even with so much to do, teenagers in New Jersey may seek the opportunity to gain work experience and earn money. As of May 2016, the state’s unemployment rate is 4.9%, which should not hinder teenagers who are seeking a job from finding work.
