Are you hungry? Ha, I knew you were. I mean, how could you not be when there is so much to eat in this world!
There are tons of amazing choices and sometimes, that can be daunting; especially when you have children. They can be so indecisive about what they want to eat, and if you are sitting in a fancy restaurant and table five is giving you some not so friendly looks… it can be stressful. Another thing is, you want to make sure that the energy is fit for a child to have a good time and not be exposed to things that no young child should be exposed to. This is why we created this amazing list so that you can see the five best family restaurants in Bergen County!
Bergen County Zoo!
The Bergen County Zoological Park was the first zoo in NJ to be credited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. I am actually quite surprised by the price of this Zoo because it is in a wonderful price range! The price for a ticket for adults fifteen to sixty-one is eight dollars for a non-resident and four dollars for people who live there! Children who live there are charged two dollars and children who do not live there are charged five.
Demarest Railroad Depot
The Demarest Railroad Depot is one of the official historic sites of Bergen County. The station was designed by an architect name J. Cleveland Cady and built in 1872. The railroad was named after a state senator of the time named Ralph S. Demarest, who directed the project and owned the land where the railroad was built. The whole borough wound up being named after him in 1905. The depot was privately owned by railroads until 1977, when the borough of Demarest bought it. Today, it’s a senior center brimming with architectural character.
If you are looking for the best slice of pizza in Bergen County then you need to try Uncle Louie’s Pizza at 754 Franklin Avenue, Franklin Lakes NJ 07417. This pizza restaurant has recipes which have been passed down by members of their Italian family for many a generation! I think you and I both know what that means; their pizza is probably pretty darn good! The ambiance is really warm and friendly and it honestly just makes you want to sit down and have a delicious slice of pizza!
There are a lot of different people that are from Bergen County and that live there now; the number changes as people move out, and move back in. There are some famous people that you will know immediately, but don’t we always talk about them? Let’s talk about people that get talked about a little bit less, and then my favorite because… yeah. Why not?
Hackensack was initially settled as New Barbados in 166. It was incorporated to the United States, or whatever we were called then, in 1693. The name Hackensack comes from the name that the original Lenni Lenape called the land, Ackingsah-sack, meaning ‘stony ground’. Hackensack was a small town that was basically made up of a courthouse and some surrounding buildings. Hackensack did not have a very large population, and the land was made up of woods, swamplands and farm fields. There were only a few roads, and the current size of Hackensack was smaller back then. In 1921, Hackensack became officially called Hackensack rather than New Barbados. Hackensack is governed by a mayor along with five council methods.
Okay, if you live in the US and you really, really like Korean culture like me, but flying all the way to Korea is either too expensive or too big of a leap for you at the moment, Koreatown, Palisades Park is the place for you! I mean, I am still in complete shock that a place like this exists! Check these numbers; sixty five percent of the population that lives there is Korean; that’s more than half! In fact, Koreatown is home to the largest number of Korean- American citizens in all of the United States!
If you are ready to get your sport on, then you need to go to 1 MetLife Stadium Dr, East Rutherford, NJ 07073. Yes, I am talking about the number one stadium in the world! Home to 82,500 seats, this Jets and Giants home stadium is one of the largest in the National Football League or as most people know it, the NFL. This stadium is not only the largest; it is also the most expensive, clocking in at $1.6 billion dollars. That’s a lot, but with all of the people gathering to see these great football games, I’m sure it was a cinch to make back!
The Ridgewood Country Club at 96 W Midland Ave, Paramus, NJ 07652 is a twenty seven private hole private golf course and clubhouse opened on May 30th, 1929. If you like golf, I really think this would be an amazing place for you to stop by. The course was designed by A.W. Tillinghast and the club house was designed by Clifford Wendehack. These names might not be familiar to you, but they were pretty much the main guys that designed these golf and clubhouse spots in the early twentieth century. They obviously did a marvelous job because this place looks amazing! I’m noty really into golf too much, but this makes me just want to get into it!
The Real Houswives of New Jersey became a smash hit overnight with their pre-taped, real time look into the lives of affluent New Jersey women. The Bravo TV series not only took the nation by storm, but led ratings in the state of New Jersey. Bergen County has repeatedly set the stage as a backdrop for the show, leaving Bergen County citizens with a thirst for more.
