100+ Wonderful Ways to Enjoy Summer With Your Kids

“Vacation – all I ever wanted! Vacation – had to get away!” Who didn’t grow up singing that song by the Go-Go’s? It’s THAT time of year: school is out for summer, the weather is beautiful, and the whole family is ready to get out and do something. But what?!

We are so lucky to live in New Jersey where the activities, day-trip destinations, and yes, even vacations are plentiful. Whether you want to explore a new museum, splash around at the waterpark, or beat the heat with a free summer movie, our Summer Day Trips and Destinations Guide will help you make your summer vacation all YOU ever wanted.

Thank you to our team of writers for their work to create the great articles and directories. We appreciate our advertisers who make it all possible. And a special thanks to Biscotti & Kate Mack for sharing the Flitter Flutter collection with us. Their beautiful summer clothing, pictured on the cover and page 37 is great for beach visits and special summer days. No matter what adventures you choose this summer we wish you many fun adventures.

Enjoy your summer,

Jennifer Auer, Nancy Palutis, Melanie Cortese and all of the Jersey Family Fun Team

    First time we are hearing about Diggerland USA is here on jerseyfamilyfun. Cool place for a mom of 3 boys! Idk about which ride first, but my youngest would be begging for 2nd, & 3rd rides on everything.

    My kids would ride a Diggerland Truck at the Tuckerton Seaport, if the could.

    I think my grandsons would bring Sahara Sam to the pool. They love swimming and this would be great.

    My kids would most likely want to take Sahara Sam to our favorite little zoo at van saun county park to see the animals, ride the train and carousel then play at the play ground!!
