Obviously, in order to get the absolute best view of the shower, you'll have to venture as far away from city lights as you can. Luckily for those of us that live in the south central and southern-most parts of the Garden State, there are plenty of places for us to go that are secluded enough to see the show. Head to any beach south of Ocean City and you should be good to go. It'll be cold, so make sure you bundle up.

The Leonid meteor shower is said to be the most epic shower of the fall season, so if you've been waiting for an awesome sight to see this year, next to the recent lunar eclipse, this is it.
