I understand the area that I'm in is quite wealthy, but the areas I passed from the airport have all been quite nice (except parts of Newark)

The weather is beautiful here, we came at a good time. Sweden is typically quite a bit cooler than the US around this time, but this is perfect. 

This is my third day here, and the jet lag (I think that's what it's called) is wearing off so we are about to go out to Short Hills mall. I'm excited to finally visit the United States.

By the way, the people that I have met so far have been unbelievably nice. Even though my accent may be hard to understand, everyone has been welcoming me, giving me advice, and wishing me a nice vacation. It's really cool

Here are 52 things to do in Union County...I must admit not impressisve.  

My last and best suggestion is 40 minutes away is the Atlantic Highlands.  I you can board a charter boat there for fishing in the Ocean.  Typically they have everything for you on board.  I really enjoyed it and have taken clients as well.  You can google a charter and get their details by phone.

My tourism info booth is closed...back to work.

I'll check these out, thank you very much! My fiance loves shopping, so this will be up her alley. 

Thank you for taking the time and effort to respond.

I saw a couple of these while on the plane. I was chatting with a couple of Americans on the plane and they said most of New Jersey looks like the picture in the article. 

And does New Jersey have a reputation for being unsightly? I know it is typically overshadowed by New York, so I guess it's kind of like anything near Stockholm 

I'll ask my fiance about Broadway. One good thing about traveling in the US is the exchange rate, so we can afford to spend.

I apologize, it's my first time in the United States, it's a bit overwhelming. I'm primarily talking about places to visit in New Jersey. My fiance has family in New Jersey, and they are taking us around New York this weekend. Until then, I'd like to see more of New Jersey.

I'm seeing the Somerset Patriots play on Friday. My fiance's father is getting us Mets tickets, I don't think he likes the Yankees
