We know that there have been a ton of very famous movies shot right here in the Garden State. The first one that comes to mind is the Amityville Horror house in Toms River.

That one is legendary, but it is not the one the Love Exploring spotlights as the top one in New Jersey. The fact that it's not is completely debatable, but that's an argument for another day.

It turns out the movie location they did choose as New Jersey's ultimate movie set was another horror movie. Actually, it's probably the most famous slasher movie of all time.

We're talking the one and only Friday the 13th, and in case you didn't know, it was mostly shot right here in the Garden State.

As a matter of fact, it was filmed at a camp known as Camp-No-Be-Bo-Sco, and it's not really that far away.

It's less than two hours away in Hardwick, NJ, so if you're really a movie buff, that's a small price to pay.

And there was also some filming done at other area places, like the Blairstown Diner, so you can visit there for a great meal and a piece of cinema history.

So, Friday the 13th fans, or just New Jersey movie fans, you can carve a day out of your calendar to visit the top movie location in New Jersey. And be careful on 206!

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
