Hacklebarney State Park

Reviewed By Justin W - Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey

I0's have been coming to Hacklebarney State Park since the 1970's and it has not changed much with the exception that some of the bathrooms and picnic tables are falling apart and needs some updating. The park is still locked in the 70's and the paths and picnic areas could use some updating.

Where is lacks in amenities, it more than makes up in beauty. The paths, streams and waterfall should not be missed. During the fall, the foliage is just breathtaking with all the colors and the sunshine against them. It is nature at its best. Bring plenty of film and in the spring and summer bring your picnic lunch and barbecue. It is just a great place to spend the day and yes, its free!

You have a wide variety of small barrel craftbeer to choose from and enjoy either inside or in the beer garden. They don't serve
food but have an arrangement with seven restaurants that deliver here. Their beers are refreshing and the pricing is fair. Give Czig a try!

Ort Farms

Reviewed By E2821WKpaulp - Boonton township

We were looking for something to do it was early July and decided on going peach picking since my one son and wife had never gone peach picking before. We found Orts and have been back 2 more times since. We took chose to do the hose drawn wagon ride out of the orchard so we wouldn't have to carry the bags of peaches we were about to pick. Good choice !!! Plenty of trees to pick from ( no pun there) I never knew that there were more then yellow peaches but I found out that day. We had a great time just walking between the trees on a beautiful day wasn't to hot and was a cool breeze as it looked like a massive T-storm was fast approaching. We finished filling up our 3 bags and caught the wagon back in. we bought some pies and hard cider along with some sparkling cider for the boys. We had a great day beat the T-storm and headed home with a huge cashe of peaches that my wife would turn into some peach crisp that were soooo good.

My family of four headed to Alstede farms. It is quite the production from bouncy houses, corn playhouses, pony rides, kiddie wagon rides, family wagon rides, etc. Not a lack of things to do and very good for toddlers. My primary knock is the price! Whoa! I bought 12 apples and it cost me $18 - just for the apples (not to mention the (I think) it was $60 for us to get access to all the other things including the wagon ride to pick the apples. We didn't spare any experience there - perhaps there is a cheaper way to do that.

Willowwood Arboretum

Reviewed By cjmckendry - Maple Shade, New Jersey

We always include Willowwood in any trip to the area. Lovely small gardens attracting butterflies, hummingbirds and song birds. No admission charged, lovely clean facilities. If you are a hiker, there are trails but for those with limited hiking abilities, there is plenty to see and enjoy on a short stroll.

My wife, Marilyn and I have enjoyed many of the Musical and Dance productions at the college. I personally enjoy the bands and big band days. The college is convenient, very modern, good seats and super clean. We suggest for a good night out, see what the Stage Company has to offer and get tickets.

The Streets of Chester Shopping Center

Reviewed By happymomx3 - Northern NJ

If you're like me and prefer to avoid the mall, this is the perfect place to find what you need and get back out. The only thing I wish they offered was more of a selection of men's clothing. As a woman, I have numerous options- J Jill, White House Black Market, J Crew, Ann Taylor, Talbots, Chicos-, but only two stores (Gap & Banana Republic) offer both women's and men's clothing. Jos. A Bank offers men's clothing as well, but I wish they had a better selection of men's stores.
For children, there's also Gymboree, Gap Kids (inside Gap) and Justice.
Olympia Sports is a terrific new addition as we haven't had a local sports store in some time!
When you need an easy & convenient spot for home items, clothing, accessories, gifts or a massage, this is the place to come!
