New Jersey is celebrating a big birthday this year - 350! Just like individuals or companies that honor an achievement or milestone, the state is indeed celebrating its age with a big event.

Of course, New Jersey knows how to celebrate and it’s not limited to one night; this celebration last all year long! The NJ Historical Commission has framed the year-long celebration with three themes: innovation, diversity and liberty.

Innovation stands for New Jerseyans like Thomas Edison and his invention of the lightbulb as well as Frank Sinatra and Count Basie for their innovative contributions to the arts. Diversity showcases the many different places and people that comprise the state and Liberty features the deep Revolutionary War roots.

October is the month of fall color viewing, pumpkin picking, and pizza. Yes, October is National Pizza Month, and if you’re looking to commemorate the occasion, head to New Jersey.

Others may disagree—let’s make that, others will certainly disagree—but last year Food & Wine Magazine named New Jersey the best pizza state in America, followed by Connecticut and New York in the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, respectively. Pennsylvania landed in seventh place and Massachusetts nabbed 10th place.
