Weekend Day Trips

The summer heat is fading but it's still great weather for getting out for a day, especially with kids. In fact, lots of these activities are better when it's cooler.

Here are seven quick takes -

Walk, bike, do some birding   Sandy Hook Gateway National Recreation Area

Watch world-class glass art created, see the Museum of American Glass and Down Jersey Folklife Center  WheatonArts

Ocean, dunes, lighthouse and an interesting Victorian town with a terrific sunset location   Cape May

Beautiful park, the Old Mine Road (oldest road in America), hikes, historic buildings  Delaware Gap National Recreation Area

You might also consider canoeing on the Delaware (it's kid-friendly) try the D&R Canal - with Griggstown Canoe Rental

Walk, enjoys the flowers and plants and picnic   Willowwood Arboretum

Cooler weather makes me think about orchards - fruits, flowers, cider, doughnuts, pies, farm animals...   Terhune Orchards
