The Jon Bon Jovi rest stop on the Garden State Parkway is way cooler than you may think...in fact, it's cool enough that you should make it a point to fill up there. There is a Bon Jovi hologram and you can ask him questions! I know right?
It's been over a year now since they opened the new Forked River rest area on the Garden State Parkway. The rest stop is located at mile marker 74. The rest stop is beautiful but in my opinion, it needs some added attractions.
I have the same commute basically each weekday, Monday through Friday, to come into work at 92.7 WOBM. I travel the Garden State Parkway from Tuckerton/Little Egg Harbor (Exit 58) to Toms River (Exit 82).
I can't thank God enough for the protection we were given in the very final seconds of what could have been the most tragic thing to ever happen in our family. I was driving home from the beach with by 16 year old daughter, Bella, in the passenger's seat. It was a wonderful family day of swimming that wore her out so she was sleeping peacefully as I drove home. What came next was the loudest bang we have ever heard and if you ask me, it was also the sound of angels putting themselves in front of my daughter and a giant hunk of flying metal.
