When I was traveling from New York City to a town in New Jersey, I took the Garden State Parkway which is a big highway that goes up the length of New Jersey. After about an hour of driving from New York, I wanted to stop for a little bit and refresh myself before continuing on. Although the Cheesequake rest area, is not the fanciest rest area around, it's still a very comfortable and clean one. And I found a Starbucks there to get a coffee and a snack. It's also in a great location when heading to New Jersey from New York.
