We love the Bergen County Zoo. It is a family favorite! We are members and they have many great activities all year long! Wonderful new updates and fantastic programs. My kids go to their zoo camp for a week in the summer as well! Love it!

Bergen County Players, Inc.

Reviewed By SincerelyI - Montvale, New Jersey

Every play they do is terrific. You wouldn't know that these are not seasoned Broadway performers. The theater is small so you are assured a good view and the best of hearing. Rupert Holmes who Wrote Escape - the Pina Colada song premiered his play Thumbs, the most successful play in the history of the Helen Hayes Theatre Company, here first. We sat with him over coffee. All the players are accesible and there is even a snack and drink bar downstairs.

Historic New Bridge Landing

Reviewed By robcurtross - New York City, New York

Bergen County saw action in every single year of the Revolution, and the Steuben House is said to have seen more of the war than any other house in America. It is very moving to stand on the banks of the Hackensack River and remember how hotly contested this place was for so long.

There are good interpretive signs, special events of interest and a large historical museum focused on Bergen County. Check the website and time your visit to the park to coincide with an event of personal interest. Incidentally, the walking tour app for the park is excellent, and the library, when open, contains a number of excellent books related to Bergen County.

Teaneck Cinemas

Reviewed By wolfman2014 - Brooklyn, New York

After not going to a theater for many many years, we went here to see a small independent film. Tickets during the day were just $5 each and that cannot be beat. The theater itself was a bit small, but seats were comfy and floor was clean. Street parking in the area is available, although I am sure it may get tough on the weekends.

Saddle River County Park

Reviewed By Lady G

Took my 6 and 9 year old here. The bike trail is 6 miles long, and is really fun. Lots of interesting bridges to cross and tunnels to bike thru. The scene was beautiful. Lots of tree coverage make the heat very bearable. There's lots of places to stop and rest and playgrounds in case the kids want a change. The trail has lot of variations that make the ride very interesting. We're already looking forward to going back.

Bergen Performing Arts Center

Reviewed By ldjs - Fort Lee, New Jersey

Bergenpac is located conveniently in the center of Englewood, there is ample parking around and many good restaurants nearby.
The venue is spacious and seating is very comfortable and sound is pretty good too.
The venue is used for anything from community events to world class performers.
They do a lot of education and local community outreach.
It is a local gem, offering drama and variety, comedy shows, classical music and ballet and more.
The volunteers and staff are very nice and responsive as well.
Good for everyone really, including older patrons and families with younger children depending on performance.

Overpeck County Park

The north section in Leonia has been open for many years but last year, the southern part was renovated, a new environmentally friendly bridge was installed to cross the Overpeck; new playing fields in the Ridgefield Park section, walking/biking/jogging trails begin in Leonia and head over to Ridgefield Park. Amphitheater on the Ridgefield Park side has had concerts. Watch the horses go through their paces on the Leonia side. Dog park is on the north side, kayak/canoe launch on the south side. Load s of parking and beautiful views of the creek/lake. Incredible to have this treasure 5 minutes from the GWB. Bus 172 from the NY side of the GWBBS takes you down Fort Lee Road to the entrance of the park (or Rockland Bus line 11A runs on Grand Avenue and stops at Fort Lee Road (2 blocks east of the park). If you're in the Ridgefield Park side watching the kids in the playing field and look east, you'll see the skyline of midtown Manhattan (and the World Trade Center).

Had fun with Kayaking. The Kayak rentals are to the right of Fort Lee Road/Overpeck Park Driveway intersection, via the wooden bridges. The staff there were quite friendly and helpful. Just a note that Canoes are not available everyday there, so better inquire before visiting. Kids under 5 are not allowed, and kids under 8 are allowed on canowe ONLY with two accompanying adults.Also went to the dinosaurs field station nearby.

Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum

Reviewed By schmutaki - new jersey

We had read about this museum in a New Jersey monthly article about unique museums in New Jersey. This small museum is located in the renovated carriage house of Hiram Blauvelt a philanthropist, conservationist and collector. The carriage house is beautifully restored and contained a wonderful exhibit featuring photos, paintings and sculptures of wild animals. The staff member in charge treated us to a tour of the second floor which is usually closed to the public and contained what must be one of the most magnificent taxidermy collections in existence. The diversity of animals was unmatched. Truly a wonderful experience. There is a nice, small sculpture garden outside. Unfortunately, no photography is allowed inside the museum. There is no admission fee, but a donation is suggested. The Blauvelt Mansion next door is currently abandoned and in disrepair but we took a quick look after visiting the museum.
