Myers Farms Farmer's Market in Goshen New Jersey

Myers Farms Farmer's Market in Goshen New Jersey
Heading to the south New Jersey Shore? If so, you'll want to check out some of the local Farmer's Markets on your way there! You'll find many of them if you're taking route 9, route 55 or route 47 to the south Jersey Shore points like Avalon, Stone Harbor, Wildwood and Cape May.

We go down to Wildwood several times a year and find it a LOT better to buy our fresh produce from one of the local farm stands on our way down. Trust me, the fresh produce that you find at these farm stands is a lot fresher and better then the stuff that you find at the local grocery stores down there. Plus, a lot of the times it's even cheaper!

One of our favorite places to stop at is called Myers Farms which is located at 425 Route 47 North in Goshen, New Jersey. If your heading down route 47, you'll find them located on the right side of the road. They have signage out and a large parking lot for you to pull into.

When shopping there you'll find a lot of your current in-season fruits and vegetables there. We always find their prices to be great. We like to buy our lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes, peaches, grapes, plums, bananas, watermelons, etc. there. Of course, it will depend on the season on what they have to offer, but everything we have ever purchased was great!

The pictures that I'm featuring in my blog post today were taken by us when we were down to the Jersey Shore in October 2017. Hence, why you'll see all of the pumpkins, cornstalks and other fall items in the photos. On the day that we were there...my grandchildren ran through their corn maze for free and they gave each child their own little pumpkin when they were finished.

There are a few of these fruit & vegetable stands along route 47 as you head south down to the Jersey Shore, but Myers Farms is one of our favorites. They offer a great variety of fresh produce items and their prices are really reasonable for what you're getting. If this is one of the routes that you take, we highly recommend that you stop in to pick up some fresh goodies while traveling through.

Tommy's Pizza - The Best Pizza in Gettysburg

Tommy's Pizza - The Best Pizza in Gettysburg
We love to take weekend getaways and we try to visit Gettysburg a few times every year. Like most tourist-towns, you'll find gobs and gobs of places to eat. Gettysburg is no exception! You'll find fine dining, casual dining, fast food, pizza parlors, cafes, ice cream shops, candy stores, coffee shops and more!

Like most people in this world, we love pizza and every time we visit Gettysburg we make sure that we stop into Tommy's Pizza located at 105 Steinwehr Avenue who has the best pizza in town. At least, in our personal opinion, Tommy's has the best pizza!

Tommy's pizza serves up all kinds of different homemade pizzas. One of our favorites to get is the Veggie Pizza. In addition to the pizza, they offer chicken wings (we love their BBQ wings), homemade subs, french fries, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, chicken fingers, stromboli, gyro's, various salads and more.

In regards to pricing, we feel that almost all of their offerings are competitively priced. With that said, you will pay MORE for a pizza from Tommy's than what you will pay from a franchise store. However, we feel that it's worth the extra price because it's really good....REALLY, REALLY... GOOD!

They offer FREE parking in their parking lot for patrons or you can hit up one of the parking meters out front, should their parking lot be full. You can dine-in or order take-out. We have dined in and have ordered takeout with great results! Our food is always made-to-order and our hot items are piping hot and our cold items are cold.

Family Fun at Morey's Piers Amusement Park in Wildwood

Morey's Piers and Water Parks in Wildwood, New Jersey
Morey's Piers and Beachfront Water Parks are located directly on the beach in Wildwood, New Jersey. When you visit Morey's Piers you will find three large wooden piers filled with amusement park rides, fun carnival style games and two fun-filled water parks for you and your family to enjoy.

Morey's Piers is a family owned and operated seaside park that spans over 18 acres along six beach blocks. What's really nice is that all three of the amusement piers are within walking distance from one another. You can play on one, two or all three of them in a single day.

When our family visits the park we make an entire day of it. Since we'll be spending several hours there, we opt to buy the all-you-can ride wristband. However, you can also opt to just buy tickets and pay as you go. Frankly though, if your kids are going to be getting on at least 10+ amusement rides, you'll probably save money by purchasing the wristbands.

There are all kinds of different rides for you and the family to enjoy. There are "water" rides where you'll get a little wet, dry rides, roller coasters, kiddie rides and everything in between. When getting on the rides you want to dress appropriately and wear comfortable shoes. Don't be dragging shopping bags and other items with you onto the rides.

All of the amusement rides are broken down into 3 different categories:

* High Thrill Rides - High speeds with extremely unusual & stressful physical forces. This ride contains startling & unexpected thrills appropriate for ONLY the most healthy & physically able riders.

* Moderate Thrill Rides - Moderate speeds with unexpected movements & stressful physical forces. This ride may contain unanticipated thrills.

* Mild Thrill Rides - Low speeds with expected movements and anticipated thrills.

I recommend that you write down your child's name, your name and your cellphone number onto a piece of paper & slip it into your child's pocket. This way if they get separated from you, they can be identified and you'll be contacted. We all hope that this never happens, but it does! It's a good time to have a "safety" talk with your child(ren) on what to do if they do become separated from you. Being prepared is the smart thing to do!

There are two different water parks with one of them located on the Surfside Pier at 25th Avenue and the Boardwalk and the second one is called Raging Waters located at Mariner's Pier at Schellenger Avenue and the Boardwalk. These water parks have separate admission charges!!! You can buy admission just into the water park or purchase combo tickets to save to a little bit of money.

During the weekends and holidays, Morey's gets really busy so I suggest that you plan ahead. You may want to try to visit during the "off peak" hours during the day when a lot of people are over on the beach, as compared to visiting during the evening hours and/or weekend hours.

On the piers you'll find various carnival style games that you can play. In my personal opinion, play them AFTER you're done riding for the day. It can be a real pain in the butt to drag around those stuffed animals while you're trying to get on rides and while standing in lines. Of course, this is entirely up to you.

Every time we visit the Jersey Shore (Avalon, Stone Harbor, Wildwood or Cape May), we always plan a family fun visit to Morey's Piers Amusement Park. It's great fun for the entire family and has become a family tradition every time we travel down to the shore!
