Princeton University

The ivy league campus is ideal for a stroll, where some interesting buildings may be visited.

Reviewed By Herstory_62 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

A classic magnificent campus in the heart of a bustling & charming historic town that maintains centuries of tradition, alongside state of the art libraries, museums, facilities & a magnificent chapel. An obviously diversified student population of women & men enhances the ambiance, as well as the appeal for generations to come.

Not sure how I never heard of this place but I've been twice now and looking forward to going back. Amazing grounds and gardens and interesting sculpture everywhere you turn. Both times we started by going to Ratt's Restaurant and then actually driving around to the visitors center. I've been in summer and spring and now looking forward to a fall visit. This would be difficult for someone with limited mobility or anyone in a wheelchair due to spots with uneven terrain so call ahead to reserve a guide / golf cart tour. For everyone else -- as large as the grounds are - you're walking at your speed with plenty of places to take breaks - including a few snack locations throughout the park. We've never had alot of luck following the maps but you really don't need them - and all the sculptures are well labeled.

Mercer County Park

Reviewed By raninawaz - Hamilton, New Jersey

I have visited the park many a time, be it for a morning walk, or to cheer contestants or to watch a concert or just to watch the deers. It is a beautul park with playgrounds, icerinks, tennis courts, softball and football courts, paddling etc. They even have a cricket pitch. Love to watch the joggers, bicyclers and how could I forget the pet park.

Reviewed By DateWithMyCity - New York, New York, United States

What an interesting, lovely spot: we visited with the "wild residents" both inside the space, & outside on a walk (snakes, birds, frogs, turtles & butterflies). Also bought honey/beeswax soap - the boutique has lots of fun gifts to choose from. A great stop for a breath of fresh air & family learning visit.

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.

David Bradley chocolate is incredible. We loved the sample and made several purchases. But you can't tour the factory. There is a small observation window to watch the workers, but that's it.

Don't let the bargain prices fool you. This is a clean, comfortable theater showing 1st run movies with adjustable lounge chair seating. Unlike most area theaters, the ticket prices aren't ridiculously high, they still have bargain matinees and you can refill your large popcorn. So, adjust your lounge chair and enjoy!

Six Flags Great Adventure

This park truly is a great adventure for the whole family, which features 100 rides, shows, special events and theme areas such as Boardwalk, Frontier Adventures, Fantasy Forest and Movietown.

Reviewed By Jonny N

Trip to Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey! I had a great time and I look forward to experiencing this amusement park again next year! I recommend this amusement park for families with Teenagers, I don’t recommend this park for families with young kids that are too short to ride the rides, and/ or too young to not be scared of the rides. You want them to have a fun experience, so allow your kids to when they are old enough, rather than take them while they are too young and traumatize them lol.
