You weren’t expecting to meet an alpaca today, while you were seeking exciting New Jersey attractions. As you walk into the lush green pastures of Silver Fox Farm, you’re overcome with delight as these gentle creatures come close enough to you to be fed and petted while their owner tells you their names.
Later, you spend an afternoon at Storybook Land amidst the joy of children on outings with their parents and grandparents, zigzagging through the attractions. Never one to just be an observer, you also begin to romp among the large pastel castles and nursery-rhyme-themed amusements. On this spirited road trip to hotels in Egg Harbor Township, you’re happy to discover that your inner child is more than ready to come out to explore and play in the New Jersey sunshine.
In 1614, a Dutch explorer gave Egg Harbor Township its name after a cruise up the river led to meadows completely laden with shorebird and waterfowl eggs. A haven from the flashier hotels in Atlantic City, many Egg Harbor Township hotels offer you a more sedate and relaxing Garden State experience. Rent a car in Egg Harbor Township and drive to pick up a bottle of Renault Vineyard’s famous blueberry champagne. Allow yourself just a few sips, then take a tour of the 150-year-old winery and taste some of its more classic vintages. Or you can indulge in a little adult playtime with a gourmet meal at one of the vineyard’s excellent restaurants and relax in the sun on the porch of its Tuscany-inspired chalet with a fine burgundy.
Whether you wish to placate your childlike sense of wonder or your more adult sensibilities, Egg Harbor Township is the perfect home away from home.
