Get prepared for this year’s Taste of Rahway! While this annual event will be different from the rest, expect the same food adventure as every year. Tickets this year are going for $5.00 and during four weekends in April, participants will present their “passports” and only pay $5.00 for a special Taste of Spring features including desserts (3). Food is meant to be enjoyed on the go, however, tourists are more than welcomed to visit and enjoy a full course meal at any of the participating restaurants (3). This year, many participating restaurants are outside of Rahway and many more are award-winning restaurants. Expect to find great food from La Bon Bakery in Woodbridge, The Tavern at Ash Brook in Scotch Plains, and even Bahama Breeze in Woodbridge (#). Tickets go on sell starting March 12th!

Get Ready for Outdoor Fun in 2021

With winter almost behind us, it may be a great idea to get a head start on listing Spring/Summer events you don’t want to miss or most of all, have back up plans for when those events may be sold out due to guest occupancy limits. Here are some fun outdoor events to plan for ahead of time:

-Get beach passes early! It sounds unusual to think about beach passes this early in March, but some towns are already sold out and not providing beach passes like Spring Lake (4). So, if you are planning some beach fun this spring/summer look into it now!

-Available now, (or for at a later time) rail biking! Ride through some beautiful scenes of abandoned railroad tracks turned into cycling routes (5). Bikes are coupled together in twos so bring a friend or loved one or a group to enjoy this new adventure (5)! For details, check out: https://www.revrail.com/cape-may-nj

-Get your heart racing with indoor skydiving (6)! No need to jump off a plane, this adventure is available year-round and a great experience with friends and family, so take a group for a birthday or some fun! Float in the air at iFly in Paramus (6). This is also an excellent tester if you are contemplating someday to do the real deal! Click https://www.iflyworld.com/paramus/ to learn more.

-Plan ahead and get ready for great times! If you’re looking for a great place to zip line or walk among the trees, Cape May County Park and Zoo is it (7). Here you will find Tree-to-Tree Adventure Park where you’ll reach heights of up to 40 feet in the air (7). There are 4 treetop course and two children courses, so there’s something for every skill level (7).

-If you are looking for some fun now, Diggerland is ready for guests! Find one of the tallest rope courses and much more for a day of fun with the family! Check out times and dates and make a reservation today: https://www.diggerlandusa.com/tickets/
