The One Enchanting Place In New Jersey That Must Go On Your Bucket List Immediately

Have you ever been to a place so beautiful that it seemed surreal? New Jersey is home to a host of mesmerizing locations, but the Leonard J. Buck Garden in Far Hills is truly breathtaking. A year-round gem, I highly recommend a spring or summer visit followed by a second trip in the fall. Admission is free though a small donation is suggested.

You can find the Leonard J. Buck Garden at 11 Layton Road in Far Hills. Stop by the visitor center and arrange a guided tour for a small fee, or explore the gardens for yourself. Current hours are 10-4, Monday through Friday, 10-5 on Saturday and 12-5 on Sunday.

Enjoy special events like Bonsai For Beginners, Woodland Walks, Photography Workshops and more. Next Sunday (4/30) the garden will be hosting a family-friendly Scavenger Hunt.
