Aunt Charlotte's Candies

Reviewed By Ameliaowl - Magnolia, New Jersey

No holiday is complete without a visit to Aunt Charlotte's Candy Store. The door opens to a crowd who come because they love the tradition of choosing favorites synonymous with each season of the year. Whether I go there at Halloween, Christmas, Valentines Day, or Easter...all the traditional favorites have been made as they've been doing for decades. I love choosing trinkets from the variety of novelties displayed along the back wall of the "shoppe"... Note my spelling...this place just makes me feel like I've stepped back in time. You can customize your selections of chocolate, have things personalized and leave feeling like your sweet tooth and those of your loved ones will be sooo satisfied.
If you come just before a holiday, leave time to allow for finding a parking space along the street if the small lot is filled and also for the possibility that you'll have to wait in line to be checked out. Hey, but what's a holiday without the bustle of friendly folks getting ready to celebrate!

Reviewed By MEEEK - Suffern, New York

We visited the Battleship New Jersey, earlier this month, one day, when the snow was melting. Because of that, only part of the ship was open for touring. We opted not to take the audio tour, as it was even more money; however, we may have missed something without it. The little exhibit inside was self explanatory, and so were a couple of the rooms, but I wonder if we missed any explanation of the outside of the ship. The ship and its history is impressive, and I did enjoy the exhibit on board; I just don't think that it was worth the steep price, especially since we couldn't tour the whole ship, and there was no one on the ship of whom to ask questions.

Amazing Escape Room

Reviewed By Yumeeemama D

Customer service was AMAZING BEFORE we got to the brick and mortar building. When we got there, there was no one to greet us and people standing around everywhere. They have a sample wall which allows practice for the various locks but multiple samples were broken, or missing pieces.
I only knew about signing in because I heard someone else mention that they already signed in. The associates were great but they were running around trying to do multiple things. There REALLY needs to be a host or hostess for when people come in. We had never been there before so a brief overview of how this works would have been nice.
Once we were in the room, We were with a group who must do these for a living and they just started going when the door opened. They didn't communicate with us until I shared a clue I had found and not them. They were overbearing and didn't even care that we were in the room. Perhaps a brief introduction and an overview from the room master could have prepared ALL of us to work together.
This all said, I think this is a clever game and would like to return as long as no one else is in the room, since this was our experience. I felt bad for my daughter who was so excited to be there and wasn't able to truly participate because the group in there were savages!

Collingswood Scottish Rite Theatre

Reviewed By A TripAdvisor Member

First time attending the Scottish rite theater. Overall the experience was very very good. It's a small and intimate venue with an interesting history. We sat all the way in the back and still had a good view of the stage. There's plenty of free on-site parking and the nearby downtown area offers lots of pre-show dining choices. We will definitely return.

Pinsetter Bar and Bowl

Reviewed By NJ5O - Haddonfield, New Jersey

Since the kids were old enough to roll a ball we would head to Pinsetters for birthdays and rainy days. The atmosphere is a departure from old-time bowling alleys. That is good and bad. The good is the kids have an endless barrage of information and entertainment and the bad is: so do the parents.
They staff is flexible and used to parties and gatherings. Waitstaff will take your order and deliver right to the alley.
A fun family place.

Unbelievably expensive for a family of four with young teens and terrifyingly could-not-be-to-code overcrowded. This place was trashed! A wreck! We waited in line with probably 600 people and once we arrived inside were overwhelmed by the crowds. There is apparently no timed entry ... it's simply 'best of luck when you get inside'! Make sure to hold onto your young children's hands or you will LOSE THEM HERE! There was literally no place to go... no area to breathe... you could not see the sea life as the rampant unattended children were climbing all over the ledges that were in front of each exhibit. The floor, stairs, tables, chairs, all were covered with trash, food detritus, diapers (diapers!!) kleenex, toys... unbelievable mess. There was an elderly lady with a DOG inside, probably a service dog didn't see a vest, but she was draped in exhaustion on one of the benches and her dog was resting just underneath the bench and we STEPPED on the DOG'S HEAD because we could not SEE it... this was horrible! Horrible! The staff was totally overwhelmed and doing nothing to contain these crowds. We lasted about 15 minutes inside at which point our teenage son asked ' if there is a fire will we survive?' Scary. Time. To. Go. Upon leaving we saw two police officers outside with a lost child who was in fits of fear.. completely catatonic... would not allow anyone near her or to help her. Terrible, terrible visit. We will never return.

Garden State Discovery Museum

Reviewed By Art F - New Jersey

We took our 3 1/2 year old grandson and spent close to two hours watching him totally enjoying himself. He loved running around and exploring the different areas of the museum. His favorite activity was the ambulance- he loved steering the wheel and turning on the siren. Young kids will really enjoy themselves here.

Moore Brothers Wine Company

Moore Brothers Wine Company is unique. We buy directly from many of Europe's finest, artisan, and natural winegrowers, and present their work under perfect, temperature-controlled conditions. For parents visiting with children, we have a well-stocked "playroom," and we welcome pets as well.

Reviewed By Stanner57 - Princeton Junction, New Jersey

We have been customers for several years and went there recently with two additional generations of the family. The store is located in an industrial park with only a small sign to indicate its presence and easily overlooked unless you know where you are going. The store is always cold--in order to keep the wine form being "overcooked." They offer very good advice on wines at various price points--chiefly from small vineyards in France, Germany, and Italy. Even if you know what you want, you will probably spend 30 minutes or more there, hearing from friendly and knowledgeable staff. They often have wine tastings, which will extend your visit. And they help to bring your wine to your car! Worth a trip.

Cherry Hill Mall

We decided to stop by and see the Easter Bunny, because why not? We had a great afternoon. There was some kind of tea party going on, lots of music and fun activities and the Easter bunny staff was great with the kids. Would definitely recommend this place for Easter Bunny pictures, even though it's a little pricey.

Eclipse Brewing

Reviewed By MeraKi25 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Eclipse is a tiny, tiny place, but more than worth your visit. There were several coconut beers on tap- coconut cream and coconut IPA, and almond joy... all faves. This place is awesome. The owner took us on a tour (again, very tiny), and was incredibly friendly, as was the bartender. We loved it here and can't wait to visit again soon!
