Hop into Radiant Spring!

As the snow thaws away, spring heads our way! This year one may expect a very different March as opposed to last year’s. Switching indoor for outdoor activities, this year a lot of individuals are looking forward to making memories to make up for any lost ones from before.

At The Boro, Duke Farms has revisited much of its visitation guidelines (1). Starting April 1st, find Duke Farms open on Saturdays and closed Sunday and Mondays (1). Visitors will need to reserve for free guest passes through Eventbrite and visitations may be reserved two weeks in advanced, so avoid crowded times and bring the family at ease (1). Additionally, if you are looking for ways to spend some of your free time giving back, Duke Farms has an excellent volunteer program and even paid internship for those in the conservatory field (1). Duke Farms also has excellent webinars for beginnings learning to grow vegetables on their own!

Stayed Tuned with These Fun Things-to-Do in 2021

As spring brings its lengthy sunny days (and rain!), it may be a great idea to get a head start on listing Spring/Summer events you don’t want to miss or at least have back up plans for when those events may be sold out due to guest occupancy limits. Here are some fun outdoor events to plan for ahead of time:

-Get beach passes early! It sounds unusual to think about beach passes this early in March, but some towns are already sold out and not providing beach passes like Spring Lake (2). So, if you are planning some beach fun this spring/summer look into it now!

-Available now, (or for at a later time) rail biking! Ride through some beautiful scenes of abandoned railroad tracks turned into cycling routes (3). Bikes are coupled together in twos so bring a friend or loved one or a group to enjoy this new adventure (3)! For details, check out: https://www.revrail.com/cape-may-nj

-Get your heart racing with indoor skydiving (4)! No need to jump off a plane, this adventure is available year-round and a great experience with friends and family, so take a group for a birthday or some fun! Float in the air at iFly in Paramus (4). This is also an excellent tester if you are contemplating someday to do the real deal! Click https://www.iflyworld.com/paramus/ to learn more.

-Plan ahead and get ready for great times! If you’re looking for a great place to zip line or walk among the trees, Cape May County Park and Zoo is it (5). Here you will find Tree-to-Tree Adventure Park where you’ll reach heights of up to 40 feet in the air (5). There are 4 treetop course and two children courses, so there’s something for every skill level (5).
