Tours for Your Family in New Jerseytour group exploring New Jersey

From the history of revolutionary war to the amazing splendor of over 800 lakes and reservoirs, there is always something to see in the State of New Jersey. While you might associate the Midwest with agriculture, New Jersey is nicknamed the Garden State for a reason. We rank 5th in blueberry production, 3rd in cranberry production, 3rd in spinach, 3rd in bell peppers, and 4th in peach production. After Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate has helped you find the best real estate Toms River, you might want to take a break from unpacking your boxes and take the family to see New Jersey. Here are a few of the tantalizing tours that New Jersey has to offer.

Best for Kids

You can get a real taste for the agricultural past of New Jersey by taking your kids to the Fosterfields Living Historical Farm in Morristown. You and your children will be able to see a variety of farm animals, churn butter, crack corn and feed it to the chickens, and tend the garden. You will be able to help your kids understand how the food they eat for dinner is grown on a local farm.

Best for Teens

Descending into the depths of discovery with your teenagers will be easy when you take them to the Sterling Hill Mining Museum in Ogdensburg. If you have a fear of enclosed spaces, you might want to wait in the gift shop. The tour includes traveling underground into the zinc mine. After touring the mine, the second leg of the journey will take you into the large exhibit hall. The tour ends with the amazing color wall where you will get to see a 16-ft-wide, floor-to-ceiling display of 100 oversized fluorescent mineral specimens. This will definitely be a trip to remember.

Best for Adults

When you want to leave the kids at home and have a romantic tour with your spouse, Unionville Vineyards in Ringoes has an amazing tour. You can have a private tour of the winery and the vineyard. The tour also includes wine tasting. With more than 15 different wines to choose from your palate will be satisfied. A spread of artisan cheeses, crostini, and fruit will be prepared for you to enjoy. If you decide you would rather just skip the tour and taste the wine you can do that as well. 

Fun for the whole Family

If you like a good family tour with amazing views, the Mountain Creek Zip Tour located in Vernon has got what you want. You can take 1,500ft long tour from 1,040 feet in the air. While soaring above the trees, you will experience a thrill seekers tour and see an amazing panoramic view of the tristate area. This is a tour for you and your whole family to enjoy. Mountain Creek Zip Tours is all about safety and wants to give guests of all ages a safe and enjoyable zipline experience any time of the year.
