Jersey Shore Premium Outlets

Located in Tinton Falls, minutes away from the popular Jersey Shore area, the center is close to many popular Jersey Shore communities. Jersey Shore Premium Outlets offers quality outlet shopping in a village setting designed with the charm of the shoreline area and serves the popular vacation market. Easy access off the Garden State Parkway also ensures that travelers from the New York City metro area, and those en route to Atlantic City, can enjoy a Premium Outlets "stop and shop" experience.

I enjoy this outlet mall because it's not too large or confusing. It's basically one large square with 2 short walkways on the inner part. The prices are good, as it's an outlet and it's never too crowded. It's very clean and well kept. We took guests from England here and they love the prices and the variety.

Recently took advantage of an Academy award movie series they were offering. I was really impressed with how the theatre has been transformed. There didn't seem to be a bad seat in the house - décor was really well done, I look forward to going back.

Monmouth Park Racetrack

Reviewed By Tara Heagele - Trenton, New Jersey

I grew up minutes from the track but never actually went to a race until recently. I had no idea what I was missing. I attended the track for the first time last fall for a jack o'lantern festival. I had such a great time, that I went to two more festivals, a seafood festival and a wine and chocolate festival in the months after. There is a picnic area and you can bring your own food and alcohol in. However, during the festivals, they bring in awesome and delicious food trucks! They have several places inside where attendees can buy alcohol too. For us first-time horse race watchers, they have a tent where you can learn how to bet. This information is also in the program that you can purchase at the entrance. The races are spaced far enough apart that you can get food, more drinks, and place bets between each race. I look forward to my next event at this historic track! If you bring your own water bottle in, you can refill for free at the water fountains.

Delicious Orchards

Set my oldest cheese record with their 8 year old Canadian cheddar. This place has all things eatable from produce to fully cooked or baked items. Reasonable priced local produce and excellent assortment of coffees, cheese, candy, syrups, honey, etc. They even have a smoothie bar, ice cream bar, desert bar and snack bar. I had a panini with ham, Brie, Granny Smith apple slice & apple butter- it was fantastic.

I went with my daughter and two grandchildren, ages 9 and 6. The waves were too rough for them to be comfort in the ocean, but they enjoyed both walking the beach and digging in the sand. The playground was a definite hit! The bathroom was clean and there are outside showers.

Don’t come....it’s too nice and special and crowds will ruin it! The 1890s Longstreet Farm anchors one end with a great chance to see an authentic working farm from a century ago. Fit trails, picnic areas, meadows and playgrounds throughout. Beautiful settings everywhere. Really well maintained and always serene.

Deep Cut Gardens

Reviewed By TheExplorerFamily - Somerset, New Jersey

This is an incredible garden to visit during any season – except, probably winter. There are 55 acres of gardens, large green expanses of grass, huge trees and ponds to explore. Plus, there is a Greenhouse full of several varieties of Cactus plants in pots, and lovely Bonsai trees inside as well as outside.

The renovated and beautifully manicured Parterre/Rose Garden features more than 170 rose bushes with 55 different varieties – some with very cute names identified by labels. Most of the Roses were freshly cut, and done with their first blooms when we visited, but will obviously bloom again. We would like to be back to view those. The Gazebo/Pergola at the end of the garden is simply stunning, and provided an awesome backdrop for some people taking wedding and graduation pictures.

There is a long walking trail that circumvents the entire area. There is a natural pond with frogs at the very back, and a soothing Lily Pond with Koi near the entrance, just outside the Horticulture Center Building. We also saw a Library with lots of books and creative displays about gardening.

We truly enjoyed our two-hour visit to this hidden gem. It was a very relaxing, quiet and serene place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. There are lots and lots of benches all around to sit, chat, read and contemplate about the beauty of these natural surroundings.

Just a word of caution to those with mobility issues. There are many steep steps to go down to the Rose Garden. But there are cleared walking pathways and grassy areas to get there. Make sure you get a map from the Horticulture Center.

Old Gardens always have some historical stories attached to them. These grounds were once owned by Vito Genovese from Naples, who re-fashioned the gardens in an Italian design in 1935. He came to be known as the most powerful gangster in the history of America. The character of Don Corleone in “The Godfather” movie was apparently modeled after Genovese.

Worth a visit.

Thompson Park

Reviewed By Wayne-Librarian

Impressive array of spaces, activities, resources in a beautiful setting. Something for every age and interest. Very well maintained. Great little zoo (if containing mostly local or domesticated species doesn't offend you on moral grounds). Deer ducks, chickens, goats, pot belly pigs, a huge Tom Turkey and pea cock and hen, etc. All open to the public and free, though I did see a sign on a pavilion that said 'by reservation.' A great park in a beautiful spot. Didn't see anywhere to swim.

Generally attend three or more performances a season. Easy access location with the opportunity to see productions at an affordable cost. The cast members differ from show to show, although many return during the course of the season. The facility (large theatre and separate small stage) allows for a variety offerings and for unusual/creative direction. Just attended "The Merry Wives of Windsor" with a three person cast playing multiple rolls. In prior years we saw "Macbeth" directed by Teller (of Penn and Teller fame) who incorporated magic in displaying the deadly dagger. Each season there has been an August Wilson play and there is always something for the kids at Christmas time. A fantastic addition to our community

Reviewed By Donna C - Burlington, New Jersey

We decided to check out memorial and museum on a cold winter day. A Veteran gave us a very informative tour of the outside area with the statues and Wall area. Unfortunately it was freezing out. The inside area also has many Veterans answering questions. All in all it was a very moving experience for Me my husband and teenage son.
