Make Room for Daddy

Daddy's home, time for dinner! Photo by Dan Bacon.
It is hard to believe, but its almost Summertime -- and Father's Day already (Sunday, June 16)! So, take that man by the hand and show him all that Northwest New Jersey has to offer. Take advantage of a calendar filled with intriguing things for you and your family to enjoy. Or check our day trip map for good ideas for a Sunday drive! The more aerobically inclined can choose among dozens of natural attractions or outdoor activities suggested on our website. Spread your wings and reach for the Skylands!

Go Daddy Go!

Dads love to paddle, and this time of year is perfect for big time strokes on the Delaware. 331 miles from Hancock, NY, to its mouth at Cape May Point, NJ, the Delaware is the longest free-flowing river in Eastern United States. Knowing the river - its beauty, history, and its hazards - can provide you with many days of enjoyment this summer.
Sign Dad up for a any day plan or all of the 29th Annual Delaware Sojourn, a guided paddling and camping trip full of fun and adventure, educational programs, historical interpretation, and more, from June 14-22. He'll never forget it!

Dancing Dads

Music-loving dads won't want to miss the Sustainably Green Music and Arts Festival on Saturday (June 15) in Washington Borough, a live music, original art, and crafts celebration in conjunction with the Washington Borough Farmers Market kick off. Dance the day away while you explore upcycled and recycled goods vendors, gardening and outdoor groups, environmental preservation exhibitors and related non-profit organizations and vendors. 10am - 5pm. Downtown borough. Washington Business Improvement District, 908/689-4800.

Aerobic Dads

Summertime adventure is easy to find on a back country road.
Tucked away in the seemingly endless landscape of ridge, valley, and wooded hillside of Warren County is an incredible bicycle-friendly network of quiet back roads linking together small towns and historic villages, re-purposed rail trails creating pastoral off-road adventures, and miles of single track trail tracing through the rocky upland forests. The weather's perfect for some vigorous exploration, so strap on a helmet and put some rubber on the road!

Walking Dads

Get lost with Dad in the other world of Hunterdon County, an almost a divine experience. Idyllic farms, narrow roads curving by fast rocky streams, gorgeous residences that seem tucked in a distant land and old movie-set towns blur time and geography. The Hill and Dale Preserve in Tewksbury is a recent purchase of the New Jersey Conservation Foundation (NJCF), an organization dedicated to saving and protecting New Jersey's important lands and natural resources for all to enjoy.
