Historic Walnford

Reviewed By Sussex_County_Hiker - Piney Point Village, Texas

This historic site is a true gem of American History. The site was in private hands until 1985 when Monmouth County took it in hand. The grounds are nice. The house dates back to approximately 1773. The 'new' grist mill was reconstructed after a fire in 1873. It runs with all the pulleys, gears, stones and noises working just fine.

Laurita Winery

*Please Note, there ARE applicable admission fees to our many festivals, but there is no fee on non-event days to come and enjoy the winery. Laurita Winery is a sustainable alternative, linked to the local area through tradition, culture and respect for its natural resources. Our estate grown wines are nature's purest expression of vineyard, varietal and vintage, reflecting old world traditions and the vision of wine's place at the table as a complement to food. To sip our wines, which make the case for elegance and finesse over size and power, is to savor the freshness of taste of grapes at their source. Located in the Outer Coastal Plain American Viticultural Area (AVA) in central New Jersey, the winery is committed to creating wines that derive as much character from the fruit as possible. As responsible stewards of the land, we devote ourselves to the intensive care of the vines and grapes when thinning and pruning, hand harvesting and processing. During the wine production stage, we are committed to preserving the fruit as the heart of the wine. Laurita, with its structure and interior built mostly from recycled or reclaimed materials, is also an eco destination. The skeleton of the building, which dictated the size of the winery which is 20,000 square feet, was formed through the merging of two 150 year old barns that had been destined for demolition. The winery utilizes solar systems to produce clean energy for heat, hot water, steam, cooling and refrigeration. The landscaping surrounding the winery emphasizes the value of water retention and conservation as does the method by which the vineyards are irrigated. Johnson and Shea have preserved and enhanced the existing natural environment with the intent of providing habitat for wildlife including birds, mammals and amphibians. The view from the winery and its gently graduating slopes of terraces, pergolas and wide lawns is one of 40 fully cultivated acres of neatly planted linear rows of vineyards and 200 acres of woodlands, meadows and pasture.

Nestled in the farmlands of NJ is a great winery perfect for day tripping and evening's out. Beautifully architected building overlooking the vineyard offered wonderful views inside and out. The tasting room was larger than most and the bar comfortably accommodated us with a small crowd. Great selection of wines to choose from. We tasted all the reds which were very good and each had a pleasing distinct flavor profile. For lunch we ordered paninis from their cafe which were delicious and ate in the great room with a big fireplace. Lots of events held here throughout the year and cannot wait to come back in the summer month's when the vineyard is in full bloom. Til our next visit...Cheers!

Six Flags Safari

Adjacent to Six Flags Great Adventure, this park features 350 acres that are filled with more than 1,200 animals from six continents.

Reviewed By rikosum - New York City, New York

We got to Great Adventure super early and were waiting in line for the park to open. The minute they opened the gates, we jetted off to the Safari ride. We wanted to be the first ones to get on the ride because the wait will become terrible later and they sometimes close early. It was the best decision as we were on the second truck and got the best seats, at the front. We got an awesome guide named Alex who has a deep voice that's just dreamy and sounds like he should voiceover those nature shows. His sense of humor throughout the ride was wonderful and made it so enjoyable. The animals were amazing, and I got to see so many up close! Sitting on the left side was best because a lot of animals seem to be on that side. The animals looked close enough to touch - rhinos, giraffes, elephants, ostriches, and much more. We didn't get to feed the giraffes but we didn't really mind. Loved it!

Horse Park Of New Jersey

Reviewed By Stuman60 - Jackson, New Jersey

To start off, you would pay $10.00 each and $5.00 for parking which would already set you back for at least $25.00. There is no 4H club, no cows, no competition of any sort. They have the food stands and the food that you like. They have live bands but from one band to another the waiting time is about 3 hours. There are kiddy rides and that's all. This should not be called a fair, it should be called a county fair. It is way too much for entrance fees and not much to offer. I got a coupon from Groupon for $12.00 for parking and admission. I would have been mad if I had to pay $25.00. It was not worth the price, but they kept coming, not much there, would not do this again.

Sea Girt Beach and Boardwalk

Reviewed By Jeffrey M

The Sea Girt boardwalk has been rebuilt since Superstorm Sandy and is great for strolling and bicycling. Many of the beachfront homes are still being rebuilt. The beach itself has been replenished and dunes have been installed. Be sure to observe the flags by the lifeguard stands and bathe at the protected beaches. Beach tags are required during the summer season.

Union Transportation Trail

Reviewed By YourHonor1 - New Jersey

the UTT is such a convenient trail. So close to home and well maintained. You may have to dodge the occasional horse piles but other than that, its a really nice place to walk, bike or run.
