Grounds For Sculpture
I forgot to mention that the fam and I went to Grounds For Sculpture down in Hamilton NJ a few weekends ago. It was great! It wasn't too far of a drive either. Peacocks wander about the property as you meander through the landscaped grounds full of different sculptures of various sizes, colors, shapes, and styles. My daughter liked it so much she said she wanted to come back before we even left the parking lot. I liked the fact that she was able to touch many of the sculptures, so we didn't have to walk through there telling her "Don't touch that!" every two minutes. It was their anniversary celebration, so they had dancing and free ice cream and cupcakes. They were also having artist's tours, where one of the artists who has a sculpture on the grounds discusses their art. A good time was had by all. If you go be prepared to spend a lot of time walking outside, though they do have indoor exhibits as well. There are also two dining areas: one is a restaurant, the other a cafe, priced accordingly. It cost $10 per person to get in, and my daughter was free. But if you have a Bank of America card and you go the first weekend of the month, you get in free. You can read more about it (and see pictures) at my wife's blog, Super Savvy Spender. The link: http://supersavvyspender.blogspot.com/ and read June 8.
