I go here alone or with a friend to take a stroll or jog...depends on my mood. It's very safe and the scenery ranges from beautiful homes to beautiful waterscapes.

Heliflights Helicopter Tour around New York City.

Reviewed By Rdolci - Lausanne, Switzerland

We took the night tour. Because the helicopter is doing a circle from Linden towards Liberty Statue, Hudson river, Central Park, East river and back, the people (me) seating on the rear left (behind the pilot) do not see anything of Manhattan, while the others on right side and front seem to enjoy sone view.
I would skip this activity

Union County Performing Art Center

Reviewed By worldtravelier - New Jersey

Built in 1925 this theater has been restored. Fantastic! Large open space. Terrific ambience. As you walk in the main entrance take your time and look around. Take in your surroundings and imagine yourself back in time. How it must have been an excitement to be entertained in such luxury.

Molly Maguires Irish Pub and Restaurant

Reviewed By Susan F - Edison, New Jersey

We reserved the main diningroom for my husband's 65th birthday and retirement. Great food and music as well as a gracious host and servers. They helped with balloons as well as drinks and food and served the birthday cake. They also provided gluten free dishes for some of our guests who needed that

Woodbridge Community Center

Reviewed By Doyle S - Woodbridge, New Jersey

My wife and I have been retired for a few years now. We were in somewhat good shape and loved working out years ago. Well we kept putting off getting back into shape for no real good reason. We live less than a mile from the community center and drive pass frequently. Well there was an offer to signup at a reduced rate. We decided to give it a try and was quite surprised at what was offered there. We workout several times per week and also enjoy shooting pool and just meeting new people. We have been having fun going and getting in better shape. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Roosevelt Park

Reviewed By YatriForever - Chennai

We used to visit this park in late 90s when we were living in Iselin. When we visited a few weeks ago, we were delighted to see the park so much improved with facilities and upkeep. There are spots for picnics, playing, place for artists to perform and everything a good community park should have. Felt very nice to be here.

Thomas Edison Museum

Reviewed By tonimarie0515 - Edison, New Jersey

I have lived in Edison my entire life and kind of took the light and museum for granted. One day my husband and I took a tour of the museum. We go to see the light often but I never was in the museum. What a wonderful experience. Kathleen was so friendly and informative!!! What made me want to see it was that we saw a young couple from Texas outside taking pictures - a husband, wife and small child. If they felt it was important enough to make it a vacation stop we should be ashamed of ourselves living in Edison and not visiting it!!!! We are so glad that we did!! What a treasure.
