Our Favorite Things to Do in New Jersey

Wine and Barrells

Our state may be small, but it has a larger-than-life personality! In fact, drivers from Vineland to Wilmington, DE are close to tons of fun things to do in New Jersey. Don’t just take our word for it! Explore some of our favorite destinations near Salem County, and set out on your own adventure, today!

Take a Wine Tour

A decade ago, New Jersey was home to just a few small wineries. Today, areas across the state have blossomed with dozens of vineyards, and the products of our state are only growing in popularity. The best way to experience our offerings is to set out with friends or family on one of our many wine trails.

If you’re near Gloucester in Salem County, you’ll definitely want to start with the Two Bridges Wine Trail. It’s the perfect thing to do in NJ this weekend!

Check Out Our Wildlife Trails

Did you know that New Jersey possesses the highest density of wildlife per square mile of any state in the U.S.? Our small state is home to dozens of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and fish, but that’s not all. Since we’re located along the Atlantic Flyway, hundreds of beautiful birds make their way in and out of New Jersey as the seasons change.

Looking for things to do in NJ this weekend? Drop into Parvin State Park or visit the Glassboro Wildlife Management Area, both located near Salem County.

Practice Your Aim at an Archery Range

If you’re searching for fun things to do in NJ today, you’ll have no shortage of options. It’s easy to enjoy a memorable outing, without much planning, when you visit Obissquasoit Bowmen in Alloway.

This archery range is spaced out over 53 acres of gorgeous wooded landscapes, and their 10-yard/60-yard practice range is a great place to hone your skills. They even have a twenty yard indoor range, so you can enjoy your day out even when the weather is working against you!

Spend a Day with the Salem County Historical Society

Those who know their history will be able to get more out of every trip! When you visit the Salem County Historical Society Museum in Salem, you can enjoy a variety of permanent displays and rotating collections, including the 19th Century Log Cabin Education Center and “A Whale of a Tale,” which details the famous Salem Whale Exhibition of 1888-1891.

If arts and culture are more to your liking, you may wish to visit the Wheaton Arts Center in Millville. Planning a weekend getaway from NJ? There’s no better time to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, or the Philadelphia Museum of Art, just a short drive over the Delaware River.
