Visiting your state

I am coming to visit NJ for 3-4 days in late Jan. early Feb. I don't know much about the state but I'm looking for attractions that might be good for 3 older woman to do besides boxing. I'm the only boxer but they will indulge me for a few boxes. So I'm looking for a few really memorable boxes also. Our plans are up in the air, we just know NJ and the appx. time frame.
Not sure of which part of the state, the exact dates, etc. We are looking for attractions and any outdoor short trip/attraction that is worth seeing. So come on NewJerseyites pump up your state.

I remember really enjoying Edison's laboratory tour as a kid. It was pretty fascinating.

Pakrat has some very interesting mystery boxes. Some are more difficult than others. Or you could read that easier than others. Some of them have been around a long time but he is pretty good about keeping up with the status. I've done some and have never been disappointed.

This site has some cool stuff. The sculpture garden in Hamilton Township has been on my bucket list for a while now.

There's not a whole lot of planting going on in Jersey but I have spent a fair amount of time going across the border from NY. lol

Oh......Scout just planted quite a few in Princeton! They should be great. Haven't made it there yet.

If you are going to be in northern NJ and want nice hikes, you want to check out boxes by Wing Foot. I have a couple boxes scattered from north to central NJ.

When you have a better idea where you will be, write another post!

I agree. We did that about 3am while driving up from GA to MA. I highly recommend doing it then for the extra creepy factor!
