Summer in New Jersey is a wonderful time and the town of Voorhees is centrally located to find family fun activities within a 30 minute drive.

This state features 130 miles of coastline along the Atlantic Ocean. And if you live in a home in Voorhees, NJ, then you can be at the beach in just over an hour. However, within 10 miles, there are three water and amusement parks including one of the largest indoor water parks in the state.

The Sahara Sam’s Oasis is an indoor water park that is open all year round, and is known for the  NileMile, one of the fastest water slides that loops outside the building before ending up back inside.  At the Clementon Park and Splash World, there are both roller coasters and water slides for the entire family from thrill rides to kiddie rides. Kids of all ages, especially little kids can enjoy a zero-depth entry splash pad at CoCo Key Water Resort, while bigger kids can cruise down the lazy river or rush down a 4-story water slide.

Despite being one of the most densely populated states, New Jersey is nicknamed the Garden State because it is one of the top ten producers for blueberries, cranberries, peaches, tomatoes, bell peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, apples, spinach, squash, and asparagus. Take advantage of the opportunity to learn about local farming. For example, visit the Blueberry Capitol in Hammonton, NJ about 15 miles away from Voorhees, where local farms will offer tours both inside and outside their facility.

In the nearby town of Cherry Hill, there is the Garden State Discovery Museum an interactive children’s science museum. Exploration and fun can continue by visiting the Paws Discovery Farm for hands on fun with over 80 kinds of animals, or explore the Adventure Aquarium with over 15,000 aquatic animals plus the largest collection of sharks in the Northeast.

If you are looking for more of a historical museum, visit the Battleship New Jersey, located about 10 miles away, to tour the ship and learn about local and naval history.

In addition to the farms, museum, and amusements parks, outdoor enthusiasts will also love the golf courses, hiking trails, and green spaces in and around Voorhees.

Then, after an exciting and family fun packed afternoon in the surrounding area, it will be nice to return to a quiet home in Voorhees, NJ. Specifically, Kresswood, a small community of four homesites, provides easy access to retail shopping and dining, recreation and parks, as well as major nearby cities with homes starting in the mid-$700s.
