Stuck in a Rut? Here Are 5 Totally Fun Activities to Try in New Jersey


Are you always doing the same old same old? It’s time to switch it up and try something new! New Jersey is full of fun activities to do with friends or on a date. Whether you are an adventure seeker or have an artistic side, there is something on this list for you.

Wine Tasting

What’s better than enjoying delicious wine in a beautiful setting? New Jersey is home to some great wineries. Hawk Haven Vineyard sits on a 100+ acre farm in Cape May. They are open daily and have live music on weekends. Alba Vineyard is located in a historic barn in Milford. Along with tastings, you can do private tours and tastings with a group and winemaker.  


Enjoy a day out on the water while you catch your own dinner. Then, enjoy a meal of fresh caught crabs. Red Bank Marina provides everything you need for a day of crabbing, including equipment and safety instructions. All you’ll have to do is find the crabs!

Get Glassy

Create art with glass fusing. Unleash your creativity in one of these glass fusing classes. Plan a group class in advance with friends or just walk in on the day you want to create. They’ll take you through the whole process and you’ll leave with something beautiful and unique.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

Seeking a little adventure in your life? Go for a hot air balloon ride. A hot air balloon ride can be a romantic day with a love interest or a fun outing with friends. Be whisked away and enjoy picturesque views as you fly through the sky in a way like you never have before.

Dance Lessons

After soaring through the air in a hot air balloon, keep your feet on the ground with some dance lessons. You can try your hand (and feet) at the Cha Cha, Fox Trot, Salsa, Swing, and more! Take our online quiz to see if you have what it takes to try ballroom dancing. With our gift certificate options, you can purchase a night of dancing or a sample program for you or a friend. We offer your first lesson free, so you can try it before you buy it.


Now you have no reason to get out and try something new. Pick one, or a few, from the list and have some fun this weekend! Let us know some of your favorite activities in New Jersey in the comments below.
