Ok, let’s admit it: Boat parties are awesome. They’re unique, they’re memorable, they’re different. Good to know: Most party boat rentals involve some type of fishing. Not all, but some. Note: If your child is interested in a boat party, it’s strongly advised to strap them into a life preserver. Most marinas have life vests for children, but it may be wise to invest in a floatation device for every child. Here are five NJ-based marinas that offer some boat-riding fun for the whole family.
I confess: I wasn’t a very coordinated tween, but that didn’t stop me from roller skating at my local roller rink in New York. It closed down twenty years ago taking teenage memories of first kisses, birthday parties, and laughter, with it. As a teen, few events beat the thrill of zipping around a roller rink with friends—and crushes! Luckily, the Garden State is still home to many old-fashioned (and newer) roller rinks that provide fun for the whole family. (I can’t promise you they all play 80’s music, though…)
