Stopped into John and Molly's for Lunch. Was with a buddy for lunch. Our waitress Courtney was great. I asked her what the best thing they sold was. She said its all good but her favorites are the Ribs and Chicken Parm. I went with the Chicken Parm. Delicious. Thin cutlets sauce on a great roll. I substituted Onion Rings for fries and the were great to. They have loads of beer and since this was lunch during work we went with Non Alcoholic Beverages. My buddy had the Beef sandwich with Au Juice. really good also. Give it a shot glad we did.

I enjoy going to this on the weekends. Free parking. Lots of tables outside and fun stores inside. The most disappointing this is the Amish section is closed every Sunday. Has the best food and furniture. If you plan on shopping in the Amish section make sure you go on Saturday. Best doughnuts you'll ever have.

Long Bridge Park

Reviewed By MARY H - Pemberton, New Jersey

What a great park. This is 115 acres on the Rancocas Creek with a forest and a freshwater pond. There is a short trail that goes over the pond. This park offers hiking, biking, fishing and picnicking. There is a play ground and several picnic pavilions. The picnic pavilions can also be rented. There are also flush toilets. It is nestled off the bi-pass.

Spellbound Brewing

Reviewed By fred e - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Recently, I was at a restaurant and had a very good IPA. When I looked up the brewery, I found it was close by in Mt. Holly and wanted to stop by. The brewery is in an industrial space. Nice tasting room, flights available, growlers, canned beer, etc. Do not thinkthey have food, but most places let you order in.
Loved the Peach IPA! The Cherry Belgian Tripel was also very good!

Air Victory Museum

Reviewed By Lena R - Lawrenceville, New Jersey

What an amazing experience! This museum is packed with so much aircraft history. There are replicas of the Wright's Brothers plane as well as The Spirit of St. Louis. Walking amongst the aircrafts are flight simulators as well as trainers for aircraft and space shuttles. There is a memorial library, a uniform section for both men and women, gift shop, an aviation gallery and a restoration shop in back of the building. The building has no air-conditioning but had large fans throughout so it wasn't too uncomfortable.

Rancocas Nature Center

The Rancocas Nature Center is situated on a 210 acre piece of the Rancocas State Park, and features 3 miles of hiking trails through varied habitats including meadows, forest, and wetlands. Picnic tables are available near our building, but please carry in/carry out only. The Nature Center has been operating since 1977 and has been providing environmental education for the surrounding community during that time, presenting programs both on and off-site for groups including schools, scouts, libraries, senior citizens, as well as the general public.

I hadn't been to the Rancocas Nature Center since my 26 year old daughter was a Brownie Girl Scout.

This past Sunday, my husband and I were looking for some place relatively nearby to go walking in the woods, and we wound up at the Rancocas Nature Center, which has about three miles of trails, including some boardwalk areas that would be wheelchair accessible. I took 82 pictures, so obviously there were some great views, especially on the orange trail that goes along the water.

About a half mile from the parking near the building the trail joins the trails in Rancocas State Forest. Because we got a late start, we only went about a half mile into Rancocas State Park, but we definitely will come back again.

The center itself has some interesting displays as well as enthusiastic volunteers. I saw online a variety of programs offered, including for pre-schoolers.

Some picnic tables are available outside the center. Bathrooms are available inside the center, when it is open.

The center closes at 4, the trails close at 5, and the gate is locked a half hour after dusk. Not sure exactly when that would be!!

There are places to leave donations, but there is no entry fee for the Rancocas Nature Center. It would be a nice family trip. Definitely recommended!

Johnson's Corner Farm

Reviewed By happy_traveler_25254

Younger kids will enjoy visiting Johnson's Corner Farm but be prepared to pay for everything you do there. There is an area for the animals, a play area and a market but the prices are very high. Adults accompanying children must also pay to enter. A day visit for a family of four run about $60-$75 or more if you plan to eat there. You can only feed the animals and not pet them which was disappointing for my granddaughter but the animals were cute. There is a tube you drop food down to feed them. We had a nice time but I don't think I would visit again.

-Probably best for the average ages of 8-10
-It's crazy loud due to music constantly playing and occasional announcements, so bring earplugs.
-The place is packed with back to back birthday parties on the weekend which tend to dominate some of the rides, so be prepared to wait.
-Don't do the expensive $2 coat check. There are lockers throughout that you can use for 50 cents.
-You are hit with the arcade as soon as you walk in and have to walk past ALL the games to get to the rides, so prepare your kids.
-Some of the kids working the games are apathetic while others are helpful. Some strangers helped my frustrated kid manage his bumper car when it became stuck while two girls who worked there ignored him.
-I will probably try the water park in the summer, but not go back again this winter.
-Due to the fact that you as a parent/adult have to buy a card or wristband to do anything with your kid, it can be crazy expensive. If you have a child who can do everything on their own and is fine with that, then pricing is competitive.

Burlington County Prison Museum

Reviewed By chairduck - Brooktondale, New York

Loved touring this museum with the folks. Lots of history (did you know that the Burlington County Prison hosted the Boston Strangler when he was just the Mount Holly Molester?), plus you can walk through the cells and take as many "oh noooo, I am in prison" photos as you want. ...And later feel bad about it, when you learn about the people who were executed here.

Lots of neat prison-themed merchandise in the gift shop, too (I picked up a t-shirt for 10 bucks.)

Rancoccas State Park

Reviewed By podrozniczka60 - New Jersey

Rancocas State Park is strikingly beautiful, has no entrance fee and offers good hiking trails well marked and organized. The most scenic hikes are along the North Branch of the Rancocas Creek. Entrance at the end of Deacon Road is the favorite for the bicycle riders. The best organized are Blue, Red, Green and Orange Trails. The loop is 4.44 Miles. You can combine the trails for longer walks and rides. It seems to be a favorite place for runners as well. Rancocas Nature center organizes summer camps, nature walks and other programs. Fishing is allowed and there is canoe and fishing access to the Rancocas Creek. Equestrian Trails are also popular. The forest is beautiful, landscape is interesting. It is really worth the trip. You are sure to have a lot of fun. Rancocas State Park - Hainesport can be accessed via Deacon Road or Rancocas Avenue Entrances.
