5 of the Best Winter Activities to Enjoy in New Jersey
It's winter in the Garden State and a time to enjoy some great activities that are perfect during the winter months in Jersey. We took information from an article posted by bestthingsnj.com that highlighted several "winter" activities to enjoy.
These are some really cool places to visit and I look forward to checking out a few that I haven't already visited. Some of the suggestions, like Duke Farms, we have visited and really enjoyed the experience. I personally like to go outdoors during winter and enjoy that nice cold fresh air and exercise. Always feels good to get out of the house during this time of year and stretch the legs and get those steps in.
