In honor of the “Jersey Boys” movie coming out on June 20th, we wanted to provide all the fans of Frankie Valli and “The Four Seasons” a few reasons to travel to New Jersey this summer. Although the fashion and decor may have changed since the 60’s, the fun hasn’t!
Don’t get stuck inside this summer- whether it is water parks, water sports, brewery tours, wine tours, boardwalks or beautiful beaches- New Jersey offers outdoor attractions for all travelers and families. Don’t forget, we can make your journey to New Jersey easier by shipping your luggage, golf clubs or bicycles!
Unsure of what to do in New Jersey this summer? Here are just a few of the many things you should try:
Love wine? This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy some wine. Located in Pittstown, their motto is “Life is short, drink better wine.” We couldn’t agree more! Their tasting room is open on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday from 12-6 pm and on Friday and Saturday from 12-8 pm. Their wine has won numerous awards and is a great way to relax outside this summer.
Turtle Back Zoo
This zoo is a great place for families! Although the zoo is on the smaller side, it’s great for toddlers because the zoo is not so big that they start to get tired and throw a tantrum half way through your tour. On the weekends they also offer an Adventure Course that includes an aerial obstacle course and zip line for kids six years and older.
If you or your children love to fish, take a fishing expedition on the Queen Mary off of Point Pleasant Beach. They mainly target striped bass and blues and it sails daily from 7:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. They were voted #1 on the Jersey Shore.
Grounds for Sculpture
Located in Hamilton, this is perfect for nature lovers and art lovers. They have fused art and nature together to allow visitors to walk the garden and grounds and see over 270 sculptures in beautiful backdrops. You can either do a self-guided tour or take a tour with a staff member.
Cape May Whale Watcher
If you don’t get sea sick, try the Cape May Whale Watcher. They offer numerous tours including a dolphin and whale tour, bird watching tours, a lighthouse tour, a sunset cruise, a dinner cruise and kayak rentals.
East Coast Parasail
Adventure lovers can soar at 500 feet over the Atlantic Ocean in Cape May. You can choose to go by yourself or with one or two additional passengers. They have a 100% safety record and they are the only parasail company located in Cape May. If you are nervous, don’t worry – the captains are U.S. Coast Guard certified!
