Visiting the Northwest New Jersey Skylands
Even as summer sunshine dims, communities from Ramsey to Monmouth Junction welcome visitors with a wealth of ways to have fun outdoors. Special events, festivals, sports, and educational fun – the New Jersey Skylands region has it all this time of year.
In New Brunswick, between the communities of South Plainfield and East Brunswick, school is in session at Rutgers University – the state university of New Jersey. Sports fans from all over the country look on as the Rutgers Scarlet Knights football team goes to work in the gritty Big Ten Conference, hosting home games at High Point Solutions Stadium through November 28th, when the team hosts the Maryland Terrapins to close out the regular season.
For even more football action, head to Skylands Stadium in Augusta to see the semi-pro Sussex Stags defend home field. The last regular-season game is on September 19th, at home against the Glens Falls Green Jackets, but if the Stags make the playoffs, the battle goes down October 3rd.
Families can get in the spirit of Halloween in Ramsey on October 24th, when the 2015 Ramsey Halloween Parade and Costume Contest sees a host of pint-sized ghouls and goblins make their way from Finch Park to Ramsey High School. The event culminates in a costume contest, with prizes awarded to the spookiest kids and tasty treats given to everyone who participates.
South of Ramsey in Morristown, history buffs won't want to miss a chance to check out Morristown National Historical Park. Having once served as the winter headquarters for George Washington’s soldiers, the park is rich with Revolutionary War history. Be sure to take in focal points like Jockey Hollow, Fort Nonsense, and the Ford Mansion.
