We did a little research and found great suggestions for fun places to take the kids this summer. We uncovered ideas from several different sources to give you a bit of a guide for Summer 2022.

Here are some Garden State ideas we found from some well-known sources.

Thrill Rides and a Bit of History. The folks at Best Kid Stuff made a few suggestions including the always popular Six Flags Great Adventure, and for a bit of history, give Allaire State Park a try.

Go Victorian? I'm not sure I agree with this one. I've been to Cape May a thousand times, and I love it, but once you're done with the beach, there's not a ton to do with the kids. Kidventurous says, however, that bringing the kids to Cape May is one thing you must do with your kids.

A.C. Is More Than Gambling. You might not think of the historic Atlantic City Boardwalk when you're thinking of fun for the kids, but Mommy Nearest says, why not? There's all that great food as well as Ripley's, all those rides, and of course an endless supply of salt water taffy at the place it was invented.

There are also a ton of other ideas to do with the kids this summer. None of these sites brought up Sky Zone, Jenkinson's Aquarium, The Jersey Shore BlueClaws, Casino Pier, and that's just off the top of my head.

The possibilities are just about endless for an amazing New Jersey summer.
