Senior Citizen Day Trips In New Jersey

I'm the trip planner for my seniors here in NY and would like to find places to take my seniors on a day trip for lunch and entertainment...we are going in Dec. to Colonial Inn in Norwood, NJ and I'm looking for more places like that.

Hi Donna,
New Jersey has many interesting and fun day trips that can be reached within a day for senior citizens in New York. Here is a sampling of some of those:

Viking Village, Barnegat Light, Long Beach Island: This area hosts the county's oldest "strip mall," a group of fishermen's shacks built in the 1920's that now house boutique shoppes. Near-by is the "Off the Hook" restaurant, serving the freshest seafood you can find. If you are in the area on a Friday morning, be sure to call ahead to the local Chamber of Commerce, 1-800-292-6372, and reserve a spot for the free "Behind the Scenes Dock Tour." The tour allows you a glimpse of the activities of a commercial fishing fleet. You'll learn about gill netting, scalloping and long lining and the differences between them. Whatever the catch is for the day - that's the talk you will hear. Afterward, walk a block or two to talk to the ReClaim the Bay volunteers and see the baby clam nursery. This is also the site for craft and antique shows and special events, usually involving tasty and fresh seafood. During summer Thursdays, you can sit in on the free "Lighthouse Chats" at 10 am. Then head to the Barnegat Light Museum to view the original lens and perhaps take time out to enjoy the charming Edith Duff Gwinn garden behind it.

New Jersey Botanical Gardens – Ringwood State Park
NJBG offers guided Group Tours of the New Jersey State Botanical Garden and Skylands Manor, its lovely estate home. Guided Group Tours are available by reservation. Here you can wander amid the elegance of formal gardens, or along gentle paths winding through the woods. They’ll structure a walk that's right for the season and right for your group.

Tuckerton, NJ
A charming small seafaring town with quaint shops and Seafood restaurants.

Smithville, NJ
Historic Smithville and Village Greene is a great place for a day trip with many charming shoppes and several quaint restaurants including: The Smithville Inn, Fred & Ethel's Lantern Light Tavern, A.J.'s On The Lake Family Restaurant, and more

Clinton, NJ
This is a classic American small town that has attracted photographers, movie makers, and visitors here for its scenic and historic beauty. It’s a charming historic village with shops and cherry tree lined streets, a river with a 200 foot wide waterfall winding through it, and lined with old grist mills. Visit the Hunterdon Museum of Art and the Red Mill Museum Village - The most photographed spot in New Jersey, is situated on 10 scenic acres next to Clinton's waterfall. The museum is just steps across the antique iron bridge with over 40,000 artifacts and chronicles more than 180 years of Hunterdon County history. Have lunch at the Old Riverhouse. In the warmer months try and get a seat on the outdoor patio with a view of the Old Red Mill on the Raritan River. In the wintertime, you can dine inside in a rustic setting alongside the warm fireplace.
