Jersey Shore Alpacas

Located in Green Creek, Jersey Shore Alpacas provide fleece and fun for everyone! This venue is a knitter’s dream, with over 20 different kinds of Alpaca yarn sold in the farm shop. You can even meet the fuzzy friends yourself! Unlike their llama counterparts, alpacas are notoriously nice, soft, and sociable. Check out the farm’s website beforehand and arrange a time to visit.

You’re sure to find out when you visit! Tours are by appointment and include an hour long walk through the facility and time to interact with the dogs.

Grounds For Sculpture

This 42 acre non-profit in Hamilton is part sculpture park, part arboretum. There are more than 270 sculptures, rotating exhibits, and six indoor galleries. This is a great place to relax and unwind for an afternoon. The grounds are absolutely sprawling, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes! You’ll want to see every piece around the garden.

Thomas Edison National Historic Park

If you’re a history fan in the slightest, you’ll have a great time.
