This Roadside Attraction In New Jersey Is The Most Unique Thing You’ve Ever Seen
New Jersey has some truly interesting roadside attractions but perhaps one of the most iconic is Greeks Play Land in Monroe. Located on 87 acres, it’s quite the hodgepodge of places. It may best be described as a museum/playground/art installation/wild fantasy brought to life hybrid. Around for decades, this quirky spot is a beloved Garden State staple.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Greeks Play Land is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. (May-October). You can find it at 608 Spotswood-Englishtown Rd. Monroe Township. Truly one-of-a-kind, it may be the only place in the world where you can stroll gorgeous gardens, hold rare minerals, play a round of mini-golf and take a photo with a giant dinosaur sculpture. Since a visit is completely free, I recommend giving it a look as soon as you can. I also recommend reaching out to confirm that it’s open. You can call at 732-521-223.
