“What are we going to do with the kids?” Is one of the questions some parents may ask each day. During this time of COVID, we don’t know what’s open or is it safe to go out. I’m here to tell you, to get out! Enjoy your summer. Call before heading to any destination. Hours of operation has changed for some businesses.

BE CAUTIOUS, WEAR YOUR MASKS and USE SOCIAL DISTANCING

While some families will be going on vacation abroad. (If the borders are open) Some may want to play it safe and stay closer to home. I want to show you great places you can visit without a plane ticket. I have activities you can enjoy indoors and out. Get ready for a list of of some fun day trips in the car, train or ferry.

Exploring will be exciting!

Red Mill Museum

A trip in New Jersey, New York City or Philadelphia will fill your day with amazing museums, beautiful botanical gardens the new additions at the zoo. To save money, take your own bagged lunch with sandwiches, fruits, snacks and a beverages. This will save you time with lines and save money in your wallet.

Looking for things to do during the rain? Check out my blog below!

Be sure to always check the websites before visiting your destination for any change in admission prices and opening and closing times. Going to the website may also offer savings when visiting on certain days of the week. My favorite place to go for a deal is Groupon! Enjoy and take photos of your fun time with the family.

MARS Chocolate Factory

Take a photo with a gigantic M&M’s statues outside the MARS Chocolate Factory. The factory is located at: 800 County Rd 517, Hackettstown, NJ 07840. We stumbled upon this driving from the Orchard View Lavender Farm and my daughter said, “Can we go there.” I pulled into the parking lot and we took some pictures. There was another family there as well. I checked a saw that they do not give tours at this factory. If you are in the area you will smell the delicious scent of chocolate.
