According to a recent article from Only In Your State, entitled "24 Hidden Gems To Explore In 2024", in the category of "Man-made Gems" is the Cowtown Rodeo. This place is unique and it's the oldest weekly professional rodeo in America! It's a fun experience with not only the rodeo but the flea market that they have at the location as well. I visited this great location years ago and enjoyed it a lot. I'm probably due to go back so maybe this summer.

The Cowtown Rodeo is located in Salem County in Pilesgrove, New Jersey. "Cowtown Rodeo runs from late May through September each year. Since 1929, Summer Saturday nights in southwest New Jersey have brought swirling dust, thundering hooves, starched denim, and gleaming belt buckles."  The Cowtown Rodeo is five generations old and along with the rodeo, they are home to a big flea market with all kinds of shopping. Maybe pick up your cowboy boots while you're at the rodeo lol
