Experience an array of thrilling activities for the family this winter in N.J.

Finding something to break the monotony of a typical winter day in New Jersey may be difficult. During this winter season, the cold weather and the pandemic may have made it especially hard to break out of these boring routines and find a safe way to enjoy the cooler weather. But, fret not, winter is still a season of fun with the family, and there are plenty of activities around New Jersey to cure those antsy attitudes.
From snow tubing to maple sugaring, let’s see what will excite you enough to get you out of the house and onto the next adventure in the Garden State.

A celebrated tradition that can still be enjoyed during this unusual winter season is outdoor ice skating. There is no better winter feeling than lacing up a pair of ice skates and letting your feet glide across a fresh sheet of ice. Actually, the better winter feeling might be the hot chocolate you buy after to warm up, but that’s not quite as thrilling.

Rinks, like the Palmer Square Skating Rink in Princeton, are a unique outdoor experience, located behind the Nassau Inn in downtown Princeton. The rink is an eco-friendly, synthetic rink, so there is no actual ice used, and it is a great place to skate with a picturesque winter backdrop. Bergen County’s The Rink at Winter Wonderland is a full regulation sized outdoor rink in Van Saun Park in Paramus. Skate sessions are 50 minutes long, which gives skaters plenty of time to fall down and get back up in a constant loop.

Palmer Square Skating Rink: $10 per ticket if you pay cash, $12 per ticket if you pay with a credit or debit card, skate rental is included, face masks required at all times, Tickets are sold at the door only.

Address: Hulfish Street behind the Nassau Inn
