At our EWR Airport parking company, we love New Jersey and its many attractions. If you live in the state (or nearby) and are looking for something fun to do, check these “staycation” ideas out:
1. Jenkinson’s Aquarium & Boardwalk
Jenkinson’s Aquarium lets you experience sharks, penguins, monkeys, seals, and more, while the famous boardwalk features games, rides, and a great selection of food. There are also a variety of events every month. Both the aquarium and the boardwalk are located in Point Pleasant.
2. Delaware River Tubing
In Frenchtown, you can raft, canoe, tube, or kayak down the Delaware River and enjoy a free meal! You’ll enjoy a BBQ meal that includes two “famous” hot dogs or a cheeseburger, a large beverage, and a frozen ice cream bar – all at a picnic table in the water.
3. Jersey Shore Pirates
If you’re looking for something fun for the kids, head to Brick for a pirate cruise on the Metedeconk River. Your kids will get to dress up, go on a treasure hunt, fire water cannons, battle your enemy, and more. You can even plan a birthday party or celebration on the boat.
4. Breakwater Beach Waterpark
Right next to the Casino Pier on the Seaside Heights boardwalk is Breakwater Beach Waterpark that features the largest interactive play area on the North Atlantic coast. You and your family can also enjoy water slides, a lazy river, go karts, and more. Plus, if it rains on the day you go, you’ll get a free re-admission pass.
5. Horse Sleigh Farm
This Washington attraction has something for every season. During June, you’ll experience the Strawberry Festival – complete with pick-your-own strawberries and strawberry baked goods and preserves. In the fall, you’ll find pumpkin picking, a corn maze, and haunted hayrides. During all other seasons, you and your family can enjoy the petting zoo, horse-drawn wagon rides, the corn house, and more.
6. Cape May Whale Watcher
Head to Cape May and set sail on a 110-foot boat called the Spirit of Cape May. You’ll watch for both whales and dolphins in the Delaware Bay Estuary and the Atlantic Ocean. You can even book a dinner cruise or lighthouse cruise.
