Give a choice between these 2 roads, which one would you rather drive through for fun. White horse pike (NJ 30) or Black horse pike (NJ 40/322/42). I would go with Black Horse pike, because there is less rural regions, and it actually feels like driving through NJ as opposed to straight and mostly rural stretches of road along White Horse Pike.

Neither. The only time I'm in that area is to get to AC. The AC Expressway is the way to go for that.

The Black Horse Pike actually starts at NJ 168. That's the only part of it that goes through the densely populated areas. I never really thought of the Black Horse Pike as being less rural. Both roads go through the densely populated areas and the rural areas for about the same distance. Maybe the rural areas on the White Horse Pike seem more rural?

People on the South Jersey forum will probably have more of an opinion on these roads.

I think the Black Horse is slightly more rural. It goes through a long, mostly unpopulated stretch of the Pine Barrens. I wouldn't drive on either one for pleasure; they're long boring straight roads with the occasional commercial strip.

Lol, there is actually a road called Poor Mans Parkway which runs through the woods of the Pine barrens along the GS Parkway, with no tolls of course.

As far as the original question I've been on parts of both but not both end to end enough to make a decision.

Poor Man's Parkway doesn't even bypass any tolls; the state is cleverer than that. And that's not its official name; as far as I can tell it doesn't have one, so I guess you can call it Pink Pony Parkway if you like.

White Horse Pike has the Phoenix Diner, so that is that.

I've driven White Horse Pike through Barrington and Audobon. Seemed fairly quaint, one of the few stretches in that area that was fairly densely built with a mix of residential and commercial structures.

Neither road is exciting by any means...just a means to get somewhere you want or need to go, in all honesty.

However, Black Horse Pike seems to have a better selection of stores, diners (Whitman Diner is pretty good) compared to WH Pike.

Soooo...I guess BH Pike for the win.
