Reviewed By Allen H - San Diego, California, United States

If you have even a slight interest in the Craftsman era of 100 years ago, you have to visit the Craftsman Farms, Gus Stickley's log cabin. Pete was our docent, he was very knowledgeable and super nice. Museum quality original Gus items, a highlight of our recent vacation!

Went here for Father's Day. Wasn't a bad visit but the place is overly simple, which is to be expected based on price. There are a few old trains out, that you can't go in most of them. We took a ride on the train, but that was fairly unpleasant because of the heat (and lack of A/C in the cars). There really isn't anything of any interest to see out of the windows and there was no one narrating anything or saying anything about the trains. There wasn't even anyone other than the conductor to answer questions and he seemed polite, but disinterested in doing so. Was a bit of a bummer, actually.

Tourne County Park

Reviewed By soccergallystuff - Trenton, New Jersey

As everyone else points out, it is amazing that the top of this park has a view of the NYC skyline at a distance. The paths can be a little steep, so be careful on your way down because the rocks are all extremely loose so you might slide a little.

Morristown National Historical Park, Washington Headquarters and Museum

Reviewed By Beverly D - Morris Plains, New Jersey

A brand new museum was unveiled at Washington's Headquarters over Presidents Day Weekend. In addition to the Ford Mansion, just a few steps away, there is now a museum which has a film and War Gallery. along with another room containing artifacts, the new Discovery Center focuses on what life was like during the Revolution for people living in NJ. Exhibits cover musket firing, desertions, food scarcity, loyalty oaths, to name a few. Many of the exhibits are interactive, which appeal to kids and adults alike, there are costumes to try on and there is even an authentic door from an 18th century Morristown jail. Add a visit to Jockey Hollow (approximately 3 miles south), site of the winter encampment of 1779-1780, and you can experience the Revolutionary War as never before. Good for school-age children & adults and it's free.

This has been a go to spot for my toddler for sometime. He loves the different play areas, especially the painting, trains, grocery store, and pirate ship. It was an obvious choice for his birthday party and they did an excellent job! They tailored the party to what we wanted and had face painting and a private, personalized puppet show! My son and his friends had an amazing time!

Pyramid Mountain Natural Historic Area

Reviewed By robcurtross - New York City, New York

My son and I hiked at Pyramid Mountain Natural
Historic Area this afternoon. It was a perfect late spring day, and the trails were in excellent shape.

There is a very good map and descriptive brochure at the kiosks. One improvement: there are no indications of how long particular hikes are.

But the hiking was great, and we got plenty of exercise and plenty of beauty too.

A good average Jersey mall. Food court is ok but has no normal pizza place, just a specialty pizza place. The rest is run of the mill food court. The store selection is average. It does have 2 stores which sell cheap suits which I have taken advantage of in a pinch!

From the first minute when I met the instructor, Heather, she put me at ease. I knew immediately she was a genuine person. There were many students so I knew they kept coming back for a reason too.
