It’s no secret that the Garden State is home to a lot of beautiful greenery. On this tour we will explore many of the arboretums, gardens and parks of New Jersey in one eventful day.




We will visit about 6-9 parks in total this day. This tour is a true "garden hoppers" dream coming true. 





In between visiting all the gardens, we will either eat a picnic lunch pack at one of the gardens, or we will eat lunch at a local restaurant







Many of the arboretums and gardens are surrounded an old mansion or historical house. Most of these buildings are not open to the public, but we will enjoy the beautiful surrounding gardens.




One of the places that we will visit has a display of historical horse carriages.


Some of the gardens have a scenic pond or lake.


We will also indulge ourselves in a short hike to a scenic small waterfall.


Sometimes the parks are closed to the public for private event’s such as weddings etc. so we will not list the specific names of the parks since we might not go there, but we do know of plenty of parks/arboretums within a relatively short drive to keep us busy all day.  

We will drive back to NYC.
Arrival back to NYC at approximately 7 pm.
