Visiting my parents in Northern Jersey I was a bit limited with activities for my kids. So after a good search I discovered there are mines in Jersey, who would have thought!
When we arrived the place was fun to walk around, check out some of the stones, minerals. However, I didn't know there were tours of the actual mine (you can't get in without a guided tour). Totally coincidentally, we arrived 30 minutes before the tour started and decided - why not. Even after I found out it was 2 hours and I have a 3 year old.
They have 1 or 2 per day and honestly this is the ONLY reason to come here!
The mine tour, even though it was 2 hours, was amazing. The kids were interested the whole time. My oldest son (2 months later) still talks about it all the time.
If you are near the area, I would soooooo recommend coming around.
Check out my blog for full review and all the cool things your kids will have a blast seeing.
And the biggest surprise to me, the place was so packed that our group was split into 3 different groups.
