Took group lessons with my kids and husband. Good trainers( I can’t remember both there’s name. I believe it was Elly and josh maybe ) Very understanding and patient with us. First snowboarders ( floridians). But the bill could diffidently rack up, gear Rental and lessons. Not sure if the actual place was worth what we paid but what can I say, we were there and it’s not like you can find a ski resort in every corner.

Galaxy Lafayette Theatre

Reviewed By AJNJ44 - Lincoln Park, New Jersey

The Lafayette Theater is a good 40 minute drive from my home but a few times a year we make the trip because the place is unique, historic, and awesome. In a day of leather recliner power seats in luxury theaters some might have a problem with the 'old school' seating and ambiance. To those people I would say you're missing the point. Stepping through the doors at the Lafayette feels like stepping back in time - complete with Wurlitzer organ music on Friday and Saturday evenings. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. As the Lafayette starts to close in on 100 years I, for one, absolutely love feeling like a part of the nostalgia and history of the place.

West Side Presbyterian Church

Reviewed By ERA818 - Woodland Park, New Jersey

Worshipful, quiet and enjoyable. Can be visited on weekdays,during office hours or at Sunday services (9:15 am, 10 am and 5:30 pm). Welcoming staff and welcoming congregation. As with any church there is no fee or expected contribution; of course contributions are well-received but not necessary at all to visit or attend services. Ask to see the public art gallery - adjacent to the main entrance. This church also has several acclaimed music programs. Ask about them or see the church website, "westside.org"

This Rock is large, brownish and sturdy. It is nice looking so what else am I supposed to say it is a Rock. It is not like the Rock of Gibraltar. Don't hit it with your car. What? It's a rock, I think I am loosing my mind spending my time on this.

Demarest Farm

Reviewed By mrcarats - Brooklyn, New York

just finished reading some of the reviews that had rated this place poor-terrible. I noticed these were all reviews dating back a number of years. I am glad someone at the farm must have been paying attention to all the negative stuff and worked on improving it. I was just there Sunday Aug 6th. Yes it was crowded. but found that they had organized sufficient parking. They have 3 hayrides up to orchard so the wait is no longer more than 5-10 minutes.
The bag we were given holds about 12 lbs of peaches. Although most were still hard and thankfully so. As there is no way we could have finished them all before they rotted had they been completely soft. Also they did not seem to mind people noshing on peaches as they picked as opposed to other places where they ask you not to eat as you pick. Peaches were delicious. For $30,(5$ per person entrance plus 10$ for the bag) we got about 13 lbs of peaches to take home plus whatever we ate while we picked. A little pricier than your local fruit store but well worth it. The peaches are delicious. If you are there with little kids they have a small petting zoo (some goats llamas or alpacas not sure which and a pig) all running around in a little corral keeps the little one entertained for an additional 40 minutes maybe longer if they do not get bored quickly. as someone else mentioned don't bother buying the wafers they sell as animal feed from what i saw the animals weren't interested. All in all a good time if you don't have to drive far to get there. We actually stopped there just to break up a little road trip we were on. Would consider going back after labor day for apple season.

Franklin Lakes Nature Preserve

Reviewed By Valerie H - Oakland

Living in Oakland for 16 years I just now discovered the Preserve. I was recovering from a hip replacement and looking for a level easy path and the trails there were perfect. One exception, I choose never to do the full circle around the lake as there is a long stretch alongside the road that is noisy. the Nicer option for me is the "cu-through" at the top of the lake.

Reviewed By anthonybender923 - Clifton, New Jersey

Ok, it's an actual farm with a well supplied market of fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and any other freshly made treats you can think of. AND they have animals (separate from the farmer's market of course) that you can feed and pet. It's just a good time wandering around and checking out what they offer. AND the freshly made donuts are to die for

We are a family of 7 and this appealed to all the various ages. We had so much fun trying to find keys, crack codes, and open locks. We were all able to contribute to the overall solution. Ultimately we solved the problem with 21 seconds remaining. The place itself is clean and bright. The staff was friendly and supportive. It was a very enjoyable experience and is a place that we are looking forward to visiting again!

The Hermitage

Reviewed By robcurtross - New York City, New York

The Hermitage, a National Historic Landmark and house museum, incorporates a stone house that was visited during the Revolutionary War by General George Washington. It was also the site of the marriage of Aaron Burr and Theodosia Prevost. Its picturesque Gothic Revival design dates to the 1847–48 renovation by the architect William H. Ranlett.

The grounds are pleasant, and from time to time there are special events, including Civil War re-enactments.

Last month I attended the antique British car and motorcycle gathering, Classic Triumph, MG, Austin-Healey, Jaguar, Lotus, Morgan, tvr, Mini, Sunbeam, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, and other British automobiles were on display.

The lecture series can be very educational; check the website to see what is on offer.
