The ultimate N.J. spring bucket list
09 Mayıs 2018 - 02:00

Spring, that most glorious of seasons, is here, even if it has already featured both snow and record high temps.

Spring is the perfect time for exploration and discovery, for road trips and weekend getaways, for visiting all those places you've been meaning to get to.

Here is our ultimate N.J. spring bucket list. We bet you've never visited, or even heard of, many of these places. We've done summer bucket lists and winter bucket lists, but this one features all-new destinations and discoveries.

Get your motor running and head out on the highway. New Jersey awaits.   

Visit the state's only chocolate museum

Chocolatrium? The very word sends sugary shivers down my spine. Chocolatier Michel Cluziel offers tours and tastings at the West Berlin store, known as the Chocolatrium, a popular destination for area middle school students since 2013. Various tours and packages are available for adults; check the company website. Good luck keeping your sweet tooth in check.    

Hop aboard the Cape May-Lewes Ferry

The Cape May-Lewes Ferry is more than just a pleasant, stress-free alternative to traffic armageddon on I-95. It makes for a great day or extended trip, with harbors, lighthouses, seabirds and ocean-going ships along the way. On Saturday, ferries depart Cape May at 7 a.m., with the last departure from Lewes at 7:45 p.m. The journey takes about an hour and a half, and there's plenty to do in Lewes, the "First Town in the First State.'' Adult fares are $18 round trip May-June. Bring your car along for $39 one way or $72 round trip.

Go on a Jersey diner pilgrimage

New Jersey is the diner capital of the world, with about 600 diners from top to bottom. What better food road trip than your own ramble through the world of omelets, club sandwiches, meatloaf and cheesecake? Hit one diner for breakfast, another for lunch, one for dinner, and a few more in between! You'll come away with renewed admiration for New Jersey's greatest contribution to culinary culture. In the photo: The Tops Diner in East Newark.

Find great bargains - and good food - at a flea market

Yeah, yeah, we know, bunch of people selling others peoples' junk. That may be somewhat true of today's flea markets, but there's great fun to be had wandering down those endless aisles, and there are bargains to be found on everything from socks to LPs to housewares to just plain stuff. The best-known ones are the Columbus Farmers Market, Englishtown Auction Sales and the Collingwood Auction & Flea Market; other notable ones include the New Egypt Flea Market and Berlin Farmers Market. At Columbus you'll find two of the state's better pizzerias: Kate & Al's, and Pete's.
