I love Halloween and I purchase the Magazines, Haunt Books and Apps that point you in the right direction with Haunted Attractions. For years they have pointed to Brighton Asylum and for years I have watched this Asylum grow and get better. 2016 was the best ever. They have so many different elements that make great attraction. The lines can get long, but you meet a lot of interesting people on line. Great Job Brighton, I look forward to what you will do in 2017.

Presby Iris Gardens

Reviewed By Marc S - Randolph, New Jersey

Presby Memorial Iris Gardens is a remarkable garden, with over 10,000 irises, 1,500 varieties and over 100,000 blooms over the entire season. Like any other garden, it makes sense to inquire about the stage of the bloom. Visiting the garden in late May, we still saw many beautiful irises. However the majority of viewed irises looked well past their prime.

Parking is available on the street, and I am sure it can sometimes be challenging. We easily found a spot. Importantly be sure to check the weather. Overcast skies with little or no wind will help with your photography.

Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center

Reviewed By RoadLessTravelledNJ - Trenton, New Jersey

On a beautiful weekend afternoon, we travelled up to Montclair University to visit the Yogi Berra Museum. We are not baseball fans, and only found out about this museum through a Groupon. We were definitely NOT disappointed.
There is dedicated free museum parking available across from the museum. The museum is the building in front of the Yogi Berra Stadium, which was open the day we visited. We were able to see athletes warming up on the cozy field, choose our stadium seats, check out the picnic area.
Inside the museum, there is a Yogi Berra timeline that follows an American History timeline. The cases were filled with memorabilia from Yogi Berra's life, and from baseball in general. There were opportunities to press buttons for interactive videos, sit in antique stadium seats, purchase new merchandise. There is even a theater that looks like a ball field.

From the cool blue walls in the lobby to the strong, wooden adornments in our treatment rooms, we take great care to provide a calm, peaceful space, where you can escape the busyness of life and relax for a little while.

Reviewed By rg66 - Wood Ridge, New Jersey

It was a nicer spa when I first visited a few years ago. Clean and elegant. Great people working there. I went for a massage a few months ago and the masseuse was not good at all. I don't think she was qualified to be a masseuse. Also the place was not like it used to be. The waiting room in the back used to have nice amenities while you wait, but not anymore. I also had to use an alternate bathroom/changing room for some reason and it was a little room, ugly, and it had no toilet paper. The whole place had a different vibe this time. I won't go back there.
