It's that time again, New Jersey! Although it seems like Halloween was five minutes ago, we are knee-deep in turkeys, Christmas trees, menorahs, Nutcracker-ing and all the other fun (and hopefully only mildly stressful) things that say "holidays in NJ". Take a peek at our Holiday Guide and find out everything that our state has to offer to max out your holiday spirit. And Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah, NJ!
I've spoken of my affection for NY Waterway before; my usual mode of travel when hauling myself and two kids to NYC involves a jumpy bus ride or a claustrophobic journey on the PATH, but my few experiences on the NY Waterway ferry have been downright--dare I say it?--pleasurable, and fun, even. So we are happy to tell you that NY Waterway is making the holidays even more festive (and affordable) by letting all children travel free from the Port Imperial terminal in Weehawken to the Midtown/39th Street terminal! Read on to find out the details of this special "Kids Ride Free" deal and all the other reasons why NY Waterway ferry is a great choice for your holiday travel to Manhattan.
Once you survive Halloween, bam, it's November and the real fun starts! There's plenty of Thanksgiving-y events, but loads of other fun stuff as well; and as usual, we've chosen our favorites for the upcoming month, so get a first look at Bubblemania, a Bob the Builder exhibit, some live-action Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, our beloved Dan Zanes and more. So enjoy Turkey Month and Happy November, New Jersey!
'Tis the weekend before the main event and every ghost and goblin will be out in NJ, so grab your last chance at a pumpkin festival or do some Creepy Crawly Worm Dissection. And if you're aching for some non-spooky fun, try a overnight campout at a lovely arboretum or an enormous crafts festival with special activities for your junior craftsmen. Remember, you can find a full list of weekend activities in our Event Calendar and whatever you do, don't miss a chance to enter our great Giveaway to win $150 of Target Boys and Girls clothes and a $100 Target gift card. Happy Halloween!
It's October (already!) and the Garden State is hopping and popping with harvest festivals, pumpkin-y events, Halloween fun and so much more.

Even if being scared at Halloween fests is not your thing, there's still plenty to choose from, so put on your sweaters/raincoats/costumes and GO, New Jersey!
