About Visit South Jersey

Visit South Jersey (VSJ) is the official Destination Marketing Organization for Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties, and the Outer Coast Plain Wine Region in South Jersey.

 

Working with thousands of tourism stakeholders, VSJ promotes travel to the region by creating and packaging tourism product, and marketing South Jersey as a destination.  VSJ is a non-profit organization supported in part by a grant from the New Jersey Department of State, Division of Travel and Tourism.  We are a member-based organization open to all businesses in our territory.

 

The past five years have seen exciting developments for Visit South Jersey.  In 2010, the organization was rebranded from its original name South Jersey Tourism Corporation (established in 2003) and renamed Visit South Jersey, complete with a fresh, content driven website, active social media accounts and smartphone app.  Membership has grown and grant and sponsorship dollars have helped VSJ market the region as a tourist destination.
