Van Saun County Park: A wonderful place to escape to on beautiful summer days. A spot that will make you and your whole family smile. Home to the Bergen County Zoological Park. There is a bicycle trail as well.
Overpeck County Park: Another scenic summertime getaway. With 811 acres to offer, there are great spots to host a picnic, kick back and relax, or explore some of the local scenery.
Wave Hill Public Gardens: A 28-acre estate which consists of gardens and a cultural center. Set alongside the slopes of the Hudson River, this area gives way to some spectacular views of more than just horticulture. Take guided walks or enjoy freely.
Brookdale Park: Offers some lush green vegetation as well as an archery range! Something different if you want to spend some time practicing your shot. 121 acres gives plenty of room for those of all skill levels. Just remember, safety first!
Montclair Art Museum: Located just a few miles to the west of New York City, this museum first opened in 1914. Since then visitors and spectators of art have come from all around to take part in this cultural experience.

The Newark Museum: This is New Jersey’s largest museum and is home to great art from all over the world. Definitely some fun and intriguing sights to make anyone who appreciates pieces of history smile.
