  • 1. Hilton East Brunswick
    Hilton East Brunswick, East Brunswick, New Jersey

    This hotel is right at the exit 9 of NJ Turnpike and Route 18 North, in between the towers. It is a great hotel and lots of political events due to the fact it is convenient to everyone, e.g. John Corsick's Governor HQ Celebration Nights were here. Well, as a traveler, you can get this nice hotel at $44 by bidding 3* hotel at East Brunswick thru Priceline dot com. You will sure to love this hotel, nice view and decaration is marvalous. If you travel North from, say, DC, to New York, thru NJ Turnpike,you can even get out at exit 9 and take a reat at this nice Hilton, relax for 30 minutes before heading the road again, and maybe fill a tank at the best gas price on Route 18 and pick up some food before hitting road. If you heading to New York, this hotel is only about 30 minutes from New York City, so why not stay here, and then drive to Ferry at Staten Island and park there 24 hours for $6, very safe, and take FREE ferry and enjoy 30 minutes gorgerous Manhattan view to Battery Park, then ride NYC Subway to all over the place like a New Yorker. One the way back, you sure to enjoy another 30 minutes FREE ferry ride, but NIGHT view of Manhattan. What else can you beat?

  • 2. East Grand Buffet

    This Chinese buffet used to be a Chinese restaurant own by my friend with Caraokee and dancing, but later it attract too few local people but located right next to NJ Turnpike x9 and Route 18, so it became a great location for a buffet restaurant where travelers will come can go without time to wait. They arrived from Turnpike x9 and eat and get a good price of gas and hit the road again. The food is great, has lots of varieties, one can always find his or her favorites ...

  • 3. Makkoli Japanese Buffet
    http://www.makkoliseafoodbuffet.com/index.html

    Getting out of NJ Turnpike x9 heading Route 18 South, after a few traffic lighs, pass one more after McDonald, be prepared to turn right into a shopping plaza across the Rt 18 of Wendys, then you see this huge Japanese Buffet. This is the best Japanese buffet in the area, and it has lots of dishes, you will sure to love it, but lunch is $10 and dinner is $18, so pick a good time to have branch or lunchner to kill two meals in one place and one price. You won't regret! There are dozens of different Japanese sushi, BBQ, just everything, even Green Tea ice cream.

  • 4. Barnes & Nobel Bookstore
    http://storelocator.barnesandnoble.com/storedetail.do;jsessionid=60D0F...

    Barnes & Nobel has become indispensible store for our family during weekdays and during weekend travels. This one is in Brunswick Square Mall right off Route 18 South, after dinner at Makkoli Japanese Buffet, a natual destination for a nice strolling thru all the bookshelves, reading some travel books to get some idea for the coming weekend getaway. As a member, my kid got a nice coffee at 10% discount, after dinner, is a great enjoyment at the caffee reading some books. With the receipt, they give you 50 cents refill, of course, 10% again for member. In addition to books, you can try to listen to as many CD's as you like; this is really an nice time. Every Barnes & Nobel carries different books, and this one has many teenager books that other place don't have. If you travel from, say, DC to New York, you can get out of NJ Turnpike x9 and take Route 18 South for a few traffic lights to see this nice bookstores, and you all can take a rest, sitting at nice soft to read some maps or even read some travel info about New York City. This bookstore has lots of travel info about NYC, so you may end up bought a nice one. Of course, its rest rooms are clean, and the taste coffee will not only make you feel great, but also feel more alert heading road again ...

  • 5. Sunny Palace Chinese Restaurant
    http://www.sunnypalace.com/

    Not far from Barnes & Noble down the road of Rt 18 S would be Sunny Palace Chinese Restaurant, the best Dim Sim and Fine Dinning Chinese restaurant in New Jersey. Hundreds of parking and the stone lions at the gate already tells you what to expect inside. When step into the gate, you see huge fish tank and amazing Chinese tradition decoration. Although the Dim Sim is one of the best, the price is very reasonable, that's why savvy local Chinese families often visit every weekend from 11am to 3pm. It is so crowd and so excited to see so many people love the place and Dim Sim provided here. You may also find many people come here for birthday party or reunion, the food for lunch and dinner can be as affordable as dozens dollars or as luxury to $500 or $1000 a table. I have visit this nice place dozens time a year, and show all my visitors. Never disappointed. Not even once.

  • 6. Brunswick Square Mall

    Brunswick Square Mall where Barnes and Noble located is a nice one story mall with Macy's and many other nice stores. It also has a nice movie theater and many stores that Entertainment Book coupons can apply. There is some history of the mall, but that also make you easy to go back to history or old memory. Ever time we wanted to refresh or young age life, we came here to walk around and share all our young life experience with kids.
