The 10 Best Things to Do in Columbus, United States

December 15, 2017 Hana Mouser

Columbus is an unincorporated community located within Mansfield Township in Burlington County, New Jersey, United States. The area is served as United States Postal Service ZIP Code 08022. Most of Mansfield Township's governmental offices are located in and around Columbus. It is also the main business district in the township with many businesses lining the main roads in the area. It is located at the junction of County Route 543 (which passes east and west through the area) and U.S. Route 206 (US 206) which is a major highway that heads north and south. US 206 originally passed through the center of Columbus on Atlantic Avenue and New York Avenue until it was moved to a short four-lane bypass of downtown in the late 1950s/early 1960s. The old surface route became state-maintained New Jersey Route 170 but became a county-maintained road (Burlington CR 690) in 1986.

I enjoy going to this on the weekends. Free parking. Lots of tables outside and fun stores inside. The most disappointing this is the Amish section is closed every Sunday. Has the best food and furniture. If you plan on shopping in the Amish section make sure you go on Saturday. Best doughnuts you'll ever have.

Roebling Museum

Reviewed By podrozniczka60 - New Jersey

Like Batsto,NJ and even more so Smithville Park,NJ - Roebling can be added to a "must see" list for New Jersey history lovers.
1.2-square-mile town was created in the very beginning of 20th century completely from scratch by the company of a well known industrialist and architect John A. Roebling who emigrated to the United States in 1831 from Prussia. He and later also his sons constructed numerous bridges including Brooklyn Bridge, Niagara Falls, Washington Bridge and Golden Gate. Those were wire rope suspension bridges with Roebling-made wire cables. The museum exhibits explain the technology and design.
The plant no longer exists but the town still does.
Roebling Museum features informational movie and interesting exhibits showing the life of Roebling Family, the history of the plant, the engineering achievements of Roeblings. The tickets are $6 for adults. After visiting the museum one should go on a walking tour of Roebling. There are maps by the entrance door of the museum. I understand that sometimes the guided walking tours are offered but not on the August Saturday when our visit took place.
If you cannot walk through this interesting town it is even easier to drive following the map.

Johnson’s Locust Hall Farm

Reviewed By Summerfun69 - Princeton, New Jersey

Visited Johnson Locust Hall Farm this past Saturday, had a GREAT time. This is a true working 300 year old farm. Staff was so friendly and informative. We were the first to arrive on Saturday and the attention they paid to my granddaughter was so nice. The women bringing the ponies to the pony corral stopped and let my granddaughter see them up close and pet them. Hayride was awesome, driver gave us background on the farm then took us to pick flowers and tomatoes first. Then we were off to the corn field to pick fresh sweet white Jersey corn (which was delicious). When we can back from the hayride, my granddaughter got to ride the small pony, Fancy. Was very impressed with the safety precautions taken. The gave my granddaughter an equestrian helmet for ride.  We then headed to out to see the animals and feed them (goats, sheep, cows). They have a small play area for the children, a tractor to sit on, huge sandbox and slides. Beautiful pastures and views from the back of the barn. The barn is over 300 years old and beautiful.

I have been to the other Johnson Farm (Johnson Corner Farm in Medford), which is more commercialized and crowded. However, they do have a lot more play equipment for the kids. Locust Hall Farm is so peaceful and serene.

I would highly recommend Johnson Locust Hall Farm . Can’t wait to go back! 

Reviewed By Kenneth P

Stopped into John and Molly's for Lunch. Was with a buddy for lunch. Our waitress Courtney was great. I asked her what the best thing they sold was. She said its all good but her favorites are the Ribs and Chicken Parm. I went with the Chicken Parm. Delicious. Thin cutlets sauce on a great roll. I substituted Onion Rings for fries and the were great to. They have loads of beer and since this was lunch during work we went with Non Alcoholic Beverages. My buddy had the Beef sandwich with Au Juice. really good also. Give it a shot glad we did.

Very nostalgic and rustic. Pleasantly surprised at the quality and quantity of their stock. I surprised my date since he is a DJ and is very much into VINYL...he was truly like a child-in-a-candy-store. there are hundreds and hundreds more vinyl which aren't visible in the front of the shop. Definitely for folks of ALL ages
On Friday and Saturday evenings bands perform. I will be visiting Bordentown's Record Collector for one of these performances

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.

This charming stadium is the home of the AA baseball team Trenton Thunder.

Reviewed By bluejeanfood - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

On a beautiful Sunday, September 3rd the Trenton Thunder AA affiliate of the New York Yankees hosted the Reading Fightin Phils AA affilate of the Philadelphia Phillies for a doubleheader. My beloved Phils won both games, and while there I enjoyed the Swine Sandwich from the Case’s Pork Roll station. The sandwich was of course Case’s pork roll topped with pulled pork, bacon, and American cheese on a Kaiser roll. It was delicious and the stadium is a great place to watch baseball. Highly recommend a visit and this sandwich. Congrats to the Trenton Thunder on an amazing season

Friends of White Hill Mansion

Reviewed By TeamCooke

My husband, pre-teen son and I recently attended a fundraiser and ghost hunt at the historic and very old (1723) White Hill Mansion. None of us had ever heard of the place before but I saw a posting for the event and thought why not?!
There was a group of 20 people split into 2 very manageable groups to tour the house with a historian from the Friends of White Hill Mansion along with members of a local ghost hunting group. They even provided flashlights and cool ghost hunting equipment.
The Friends of White Hill Mansion really love this 18th century home and did a fantastic job of filling us in on how it was home to a Revolutionary War Patriot who was found drowned in Neshaminy Creek under mysterious circumstances, a mafia-backed, Prohibition era restaurant, speak-easy and brothel as well as the home/workshop of the man who invented the typefaces we all know and love (including Times New Roman and Helvectiva).
It needs a lot of work, hence the fundraiser (reasonably priced at $30 per person) but that added to the creepiness of the evening. We had a great time and plan to return in the Fall for a festival-type event to be held in the grounds and in the house.

Third time here. Every seat is satisfactory. Theater is small and cozy, acoustics were good both prior visits. Not hard to get tickets a few weeks in advance. Price is fair and inexpensive compared to NYC.Hope to see you again soon! Thanks so much for the great review.
