And it's not just a hidden gem, it's a bucket-list-worthy hidden gem, according to Cheapism. The website picked a hidden gem for each state in the U.S.A.

And with the miles of amazing beaches, the incredible boardwalks, and all the fantastic restaurants, you might be surprised that our hidden gem in the Garden State is none of those.

And I guess that makes sense since it's hard to hide a beach or a boardwalk. So which attraction here in New Jersey got the honor?

Get ready to saddle up, because our bucket-list-worthy hidden gem here in the Garden State is a place called Cowtown Rodeo.

Now, as you sit in piles of traffic on the Garden State Parkway, or NJ Turnpike, the nearest rodeo may not be topping your thoughts, but this place is pretty awesome.

Cowtown Rodeo is located in Pilesgrove Township in southwest New Jersey, just across from Wilmington and southeast of Cherry Hill.

Cowtown Rodeo has been around for nearly 100 years and is a fun day and history lesson all in one. And they're getting ready to open up for the season.
