Thanks to everyone who has replied to my questions about New York I'm also visiting New Jersey after NYC - we're staying in a town called Point Pleasant Beach. If anyone lives near here, then please can you tell me about any good places to visit around that bit of the NJ coast? I thinking about travelling to Atlantic City if I have time - is it worth a day-trip? I'd really like to go to Washington DC, but I think its probably too far to go for a day. I've also heard about the Six Flags Great Adventure Theme Park - I read in the Sunday Times over here that they have a new ride called Kingda Ka which is the highest, fastest, rollercoaster in the world. Has anyone tried it yet?
