There are so many things to do and see, and you will never get bored. Here are some August 2017 NJ events you should check out when visiting the Garden State:

Happening over the entire year of 2017, the Wine Hop Tour is held at the New Jersey Korean War Memorial. This is an excellent opportunity for you to experience the best in New Jersey wines. No one does it better than NJ!

The Historic Boardwalk Tour is slated to last until September 30, 2017. Held at the Boardwalk Hall, this event features walking tour of the world renowned Atlantic City Boardwalk. Being the first to be built in the United States, it is more than a century old. That’s why there is a lot to learn regarding the boardwalk’s success and origins. If you are interested in this event, you have to be sure that you can walk at least two miles in a leisure manner. If all is well, 90 minutes of your life will be well spent here.
Until September 10, 2017, you are welcomed to check out Toy World! at the New Jersey State Museum. This an amazing toy exhibition that will enlighten and entertain both the young and old. The reason why toys hold great significance in NJ is because the state was a manufacturing center for toys from the 1880s to the 1970s. Tin toys, Flexible Flyers, Colorforms, Lionel and Tyco trains, etc., were some of the best known toys and had their start here. All in all, you can expect to find more than 75 historic toys and an interactive play area for kids.
