The Waterloo Village

The Waterloo Village is an open air historical museum. It is quiet, not crowded, and overall, a wonderful place to explore.

Our Visit to Lakota Wolf PreserveOur Visit To Lakota Wolf Preserve

We loved visiting Lakota Wolf Preserve. The owners have such a deep understanding of these amazing animals, and they were willing to teach us. Everyone left this place knowing more than we have ever imagined!

Our Visit To Tomahawk Lake Sussex County DestinationsTomahawk Lake

This place has been on my “Places To Visit” list for a few years now.  I am so happy we finally made it here.  My kids are just the right age to enjoy all the waterslides there.  It is a wonderful water park to visit with family this summer!

Our Visit To High Point State Park Sussex County DestinationsHigh Point State Park

This is an amazing place to visit with family.  The hiking there is unlike anywhere else in NJ.  A great place to cool off on a hot summer day, splash in the lake, go camping, and so much more!

Our Visit To Sunflower Maze Sussex County DestinationsSunflower Maze

We had A-Maze-Ing time at the Sussex County Sunflower Maze. They are open for a short little while in the late summer and fall. It’s beautiful there!

Franklin Mineral Museum is another entertaining place. We got to see a rock and mineral museum display, see a mine exhibit and go to the quarry, pick rocks and bring them in large buckets to the UV light shack.
