Just saw America perform this week--great concert and perfect example of how the State Theatre brings in many nostalgic bands in addition to children's events, a Broadway series with hot shows on Broadway, blues and jazz, comedians, and much more. Prices are reasonable compared to...MoreThanks William - glad you enjoyed the show!

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.

Rutgers Gardens

Reviewed By SamOnLanier - Maryland

Was looking for a place to meet up with another family with younger kids and the gardens were just right. Wonderful variety of flowering plants, vegetables, and fruits. We were there on a Saturday afternoon as university students were working in the gardens, and they were happy to talk about what they were growing and doing.

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.

George Street Playhouse

Reviewed By dpg1988 - Edison, New Jersey

This is a quaint theater with quality small production shows. The stage is relatively small and many of the productions feature perhaps no more then 6 or so actors. Sometimes you get a show with well known and established actors, other times you get new original shows with relatively young performers. The acoustics are fine and there is not a bad seat in the house. My guess is there are perhaps 450-500 seats in the house. The theater is situated in "theater alley" in New Brunswick, close to great restaurants of all prices and tastes. Parking is also close by. The only issue I have is that the seats are in need of replacement and are rather uncomfortable. After a two hour show, I could feel it in my back. I have heard this from a number of others as well. Still, the shows are good and the prices are reasonable. It's a nice venue to experience.

Shree Ram Temple, Inc

Reviewed By RAJENDRA884 - Faridabad, India

It is a known fact that Hindus are God fearing people and take their religion beliefs wherever they go.

This temple in Metuchen Town of NJ has many statues of different gods, all at one place. This helps them to propagate their religion as also carry on with its discriminatory teachings, based on "Caste structure".

One should go here, only if, she/ he is a blind follower of this religion.
