This campground is only 6 miles to the beach. It's location is perfect. The cabins only have bunk beds and a table but was a lot easier then setting up a tent. The bathrooms were clean for a state park. Lots of hiking trails around the park. Great weekend getaway.

Manasquan Reservoir Visitor Center

Reviewed By Muayyad A - Freehold, New Jersey

My go to place for solo runs that clear the mind. Wide soft trails -5 miles plus a little - in a serene-quite environment around a beautiful water reservoir. You get true nature connection and the trails are covered by tress, nice shade during the summer.

Jersey Shore Premium Outlets

Located in Tinton Falls, minutes away from the popular Jersey Shore area, the center is close to many popular Jersey Shore communities. Jersey Shore Premium Outlets offers quality outlet shopping in a village setting designed with the charm of the shoreline area and serves the popular vacation market. Easy access off the Garden State Parkway also ensures that travelers from the New York City metro area, and those en route to Atlantic City, can enjoy a Premium Outlets "stop and shop" experience.

I enjoy this outlet mall because it's not too large or confusing. It's basically one large square with 2 short walkways on the inner part. The prices are good, as it's an outlet and it's never too crowded. It's very clean and well kept. We took guests from England here and they love the prices and the variety.

What a wonderful experience! We took our 5 and 2 year old girls, who had a blast! Arrive early so that you can enjoy the free kid tatoos and check out the area. The children are separated from the adults on the boat and engaged in an adventure then entire trip. The adults were able to sit back and relax for an hour, it was wonderful!! I would HIGHLY recommend taking the last trip for the day... so you can also enjoy the sunset :) And don't forget to wear your Pirate Gear!!

Tyler, the group salesperson was a great help in planning our family event. We had 13 people - 9 adults and 4 kids. Tyler arranged for our name to be on the big screen when they welcomed groups. It made us feel very special! The park is clean, and the concessions are good. Lines weren't too long. The bouncy house area was a great activity for the little kids who couldn't sit through the whole game.

Delicious Orchards

Reviewed By Ricardo S S - Newark, New Jersey

Set my oldest cheese record with their 8 year old Canadian cheddar. This place has all things eatable from produce to fully cooked or baked items. Reasonable priced local produce and excellent assortment of coffees, cheese, candy, syrups, honey, etc. They even have a smoothie bar, ice cream bar, desert bar and snack bar. I had a panini with ham, Brie, Granny Smith apple slice & apple butter- it was fantastic.

Wall Stadium Speedway

Reviewed By ginny110411 - Manasquan

A fun place for everyone who loves to watch local drivers whether they are learning the ropes or competing for wins. A good way to spend a weekend afternoon/evening with family, friends, etc. However, they have recently changed concession companies and my advice now is either bring your own food or buy your eats at the Sabrett stand at the far end of the stands. Service from the new concessions is lousy, food tastes terrible and we heard too many people complaining about it. Still, you gotta enjoy the racing!

Amazing Escape Room Freehold

Real-life room escape games are a type of physical adventure game in which people are locked in a room with other participants and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit.

Reviewed By Jennifer M

My 14 year old daughter and her friends loved doing this for her bday. Would highly recommend it for a teen birthday party! There was so much teamwork and laughter during the activity! Can't wait to go back with my friends and family to escape from other rooms! Staff were friendly, fun-loving and patient! Also, if you have the Route 9 Community Card, you get a discount!

Calgo Gardens doesn't look like much from the road, but within took me by surprise. First there was the delightful gift shop ("the barn") filled with unique items. Then there are the gardens around back with numerous flowers and garden features. I was pleased by the experience and recommend a visit if you are nearby.

Battleview Orchards Country Store

Reviewed By Dan E

Every year when the weather gets chillier and the leaves start changing we make our way to Battleview Orchards. They have the best apple cider and donuts in all of New Jersey if I’m completely honest. I wait all year to stand in line and order fresh cider donuts made daily! The orchard is immaculate and staff is very friendly.. photo ops everywhere! Be prepared to wait in some traffic depending by the time you go. Will be a family tradition for years to come.
