Over the last nine weeks, NJTV celebrated summer with a Tourism Tournament on Facebook, asking the public to weigh in on favorite places to visit across the Garden State. The Tournament brackets were broken down into four categories: Great Outdoors, Best Beach, Arts and History, and Family Friendly.
The Tournament began on July 4th, with the winner revealed over Labor Day weekend. Old Barracks Museum in Trenton was named champion, with 86% of the vote. The runner-up was Brigantine Beach. More than 19K votes were cast throughout the tournament.
Watch NJTV News Correspondent Leah Mishkin report on what makes the Old Barracks Museum a top tourist destination.
