NJ Events- Jersey City, Bergen, Ocean City & More
Just like most New England states, New Jersey is also a winter wonderland. Most people think that New Jersey as nothing apart from being a city, however, there are numerous activities taking place in both the sea shore and in town. Here are some of the popular spots in the state to visit.
You can find something suitable for everyone in Kittatinny-Valley-State Park in Newton. Here programs take place in February as well. Animal Awareness is an event for both children ages 10 and up. The park provides skulls, pelts, bones, tracks and teeth that enable individuals to learn more about the beautiful wildlife of NJ.
Ocean City, a Jersey Shore beach resort sets itself separately from the rest of beachfront towns, spreading out to make sure that the reputation of “America’s Greatest Family Resort” holds up. It is a Christian value rooted heritage. There are no night clubs or bars. Thus alcohol sales are not allowed. The city management controls the boardwalk to ensure everyone is safe, secure, and offers awesome family fun at an affordable cost. It is situated 65 miles from Philadelphia, 125 miles from New-York-City.
There are many family oriented attractions and accommodations in this family resort destination at an affordable price. That includes bed & breakfasts, motels, hotels, vacation rentals; both take out and sit down family restaurants. Shopping for clothing, souvenirs, t-shirts, and antiques abounds as well as a beautiful beach, full of fun with the boardwalk.
The annual New Jersey Film Festival at Rutgers University in New Brunswick is also a highlight. The film festival features the latest movies and documentaries that are thought transforming and heart wrenching. These festivals take place at Loree building and Scott Hall, where several films are hosted every year.
When winter hits in NJ, it means that it’s a moment for Maple Sugaring in Basking Ridge at the Environmental Centre. Be careful though, as one local physical therapist advised, all of that stretching for maple syrup results in sore backs the next day.
The Hudson Restaurant Week allows guests to try different restaurants all around New Jersey. The towns participating are Jersey City, Weehawken and North Bergen. The restaurants that are participating offer pre-fix meals at a reduced price. Most restaurants offer both dinner and lunch while a few offer special dinners. It gives an opportunity to try out a variety of restaurants that you’ve been tempted to visit, but haven’t.
Get Out Hudson are the event promoters and they promote Hudson County as the premier place for dinner. There is a local magazine known as “Get Out Hudson” for Jersey City and Hoboken. This magazine promotes activities and events available in the county.
The celebration of the Black History Month in Camden by Adventure Aquarium contains various fun activities for the whole family. The aquarium features the performances by the Dance Ensembles and African Drums as well as storytelling.
