Woodbridge Community Center

Reviewed By Doyle S - Woodbridge, New Jersey

My wife and I have been retired for a few years now. We were in somewhat good shape and loved working out years ago. Well we kept putting off getting back into shape for no real good reason. We live less than a mile from the community center and drive pass frequently. Well there was an offer to signup at a reduced rate. We decided to give it a try and was quite surprised at what was offered there. We workout several times per week and also enjoy shooting pool and just meeting new people. We have been having fun going and getting in better shape. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Roosevelt Park

Reviewed By YatriForever - Chennai

We used to visit this park in late 90s when we were living in Iselin. When we visited a few weeks ago, we were delighted to see the park so much improved with facilities and upkeep. There are spots for picnics, playing, place for artists to perform and everything a good community park should have. Felt very nice to be here.

Perth Amboy Waterfront

Reviewed By WildmanWong - Spring, TX

I know that Perth Amboy doesn't necessarily have the best reputation. We had a great time many years ago and thought let us head back there to do some sailing.

Our family has a 36 foot boat that is moored here. Took the launch to our boat and sailed on a Friday - the last day of summer. The winds were light to non-existent. Even so, we were able to go slowly and enjoy the harbor. The winds picked up and we relaxed as we enjoyed the water, the sun, and the view of Staten Island. Are you kidding?

Not at all. What a relaxing day. There weren't too many boats in the area. Once sunset came we got to enjoy a beautiful skyline with the sun setting. If you were in the mood you could have gotten dinner at the Armory.

This place is close to where we live (about 45 min away) which makes it ideal. Yes, there are other places to keep your boat (yes, we've tried a lot of places in a 100 mi radius) but this place works for us.

Living in the central Jersey.
I always drive down south for beach.

This one place is amazing. Well maintained.

Very scenic and peaceful.

Place looks ideal to take a solo walk too.

Wish I could live by this scenic view.

This place has been a blessing.

Thomas Edison Museum

Reviewed By tonimarie0515 - Edison, New Jersey

I have lived in Edison my entire life and kind of took the light and museum for granted. One day my husband and I took a tour of the museum. We go to see the light often but I never was in the museum. What a wonderful experience. Kathleen was so friendly and informative!!! What made me want to see it was that we saw a young couple from Texas outside taking pictures - a husband, wife and small child. If they felt it was important enough to make it a vacation stop we should be ashamed of ourselves living in Edison and not visiting it!!!! We are so glad that we did!! What a treasure.

I got invited to this place for a birthday party on a Saturday. It appeared as if there was over 10-15 parties going on that day and we were treated like an assembly line. Although it appeared clean, both my daughters got sick the next day. Probably wont be back unless I have to.

Cornucopia Cruise Line

Reviewed By Susan S - Freehold, New Jersey

Four of us enjoyed a Saturday four hour lunch cruise on the Cornucopia, and it was a wonderful experience. Parking is easy, and the directions to the location are well marked and simple to follow. We were (fortunately) assigned a table on the upper of the two dining decks, and had a window to enjoy the view. Tables are a bit close together, but we managed and were careful of the others seated nearby. The food selections were numerous, and everything we had was delicious: They offered Caesar salad, chicken, salmon, sliced beef, carved roast beef, carved Turkey, rice, vegetables, etc. - so many choices! Our server, John, made sure we always had plenty of water, tea, and wine (a separate cost) from the bar. Desserts were cakes - tiramisu, cheesecake, and chocolate; you could have one or all three. The cakes were sinfully good. There was plenty of time between lunch and dessert to walk around or go up and sit on the upper deck to enjoy the beautiful vistas. We were extremely fortunate to have gone on an unusually warm October day, so it was especially nice to sit in the sun and watch the sights on the water. I had purchased our tickets using a Living Social coupon, so the cost for four was a bargain, but I was a bit surprised to be hit with additional charges for taxes, etc., when I called to make the actual reservation.The bar bill was separate, as well. I thought it a bit tasteless that the bar bill included the words - circled! - that the gratuity was not included. Tacky! My only other complaint was that the DJ, playing on the lower deck, was asked three times to lower the music a bit because we could not hear each other as we were having dessert. The DJ did not play during the main meal. Instead of complying with our requests, he made the music louder each time. Not funny and not appreciated. The food was great, our server was terrific, and the views on the water were gorgeous, so all in all, it was a positive experience.

Reviewed By cgm616 - Morristown, New Jersey

This is my 5th cruise and had 4 girlfriends join me for this fall foliage cruise on 10/6/17....peak was late this year. Staff and Captain Paul were absolutely wonderful. Capt Paul points out many sites on land and shares so much Adirondack and Old Forge history. Each time I learn something new...like there is a Tamarack Tree - which he pointed out for me. The Clearwater is 2 stories and we stayed upstairs for the trip out (love the open air and audio is the best here) , then downstairs when we had headwinds going back. Perfect way to see the 1st 4 of the Fulton Chain of Lakes and quite reasonable at $20 pp.
