Many folks in NJ are not aware of the scope of the Pine Barrens - 1/4 of the state is uninhabited pine lands. Whitesbog village is at the northern edge of the Pine Barrens, about halfway between Philadelphia and the shore. It is accessible by 'hardtop road' and well worth a visit. The drive on sand roads through the old cranberry bogs and past the site where Elizabeth White cultivated the first commercial blueberry is a remarkable experience. I've taken people from all over the US, Europe and South America there, and all have been amazed. Beautiful drive, and a well preserved turn-of-the-century village where the commercial blueberry was born (and cranberries are still grown). The general store is where I buy all my jams and jellies, not to mention books on the area and Jersey devil shirts. A great starting point to learn about the Pine Barrens, and an experience that you will never forget.
