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!

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.

Baylor Massacre Burial Site

Reviewed By Justin W - Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey

The Baylor Massacre site is tied to a surprise attack during the Revolutionary War and is a memorial site to those who were lost during the attack.

This is a perfect place for Revolutionary buffs who enjoy learning about the war and for locals who want to know the state's place during the war. It is something if you do not know the local area could easily be missed.

It is a quiet, solemn area to come and read the plaques and have a sense of what these men and women gave up for their country during the war years. Local people did make a difference in the war years for our freedom and this site reflects 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.

We went here on a recommendation of a lady we met in a store in Sleepy Hollow. It was so beautiful. Part of the gardens is under construction but the parts we did see were still really lovely. It was a nice place to stop and take pictures.

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"
