Visit The Kid-Friendly Yogi Berra Museum In New Jersey, Then Stop For Ice Cream At Applegate Farm
Did you know that one of baseball’s all-time greats called New Jersey home? Take this exciting kid-friendly trip to explore his namesake museum, learn all about America’s pastime, and then treat yourself to
farm-fresh ice cream — all right here in the Garden State! This is the perfect New Jersey day trip for any family to enjoy.
The Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center commemorates the New York Yankees all-star catcher in an environment that honors the game and shares its passion with kids and adults alike.
Yogi was one of the game's best players, and he led a full life both in and outside of the stadium.
As you explore this baseball heritage museum, you'll learn all about Yogi's efforts off the field, too. Did you know he served our country, and had a successful career as a brand spokeperson, too?
Of course, most people come to hear about the legendary Yankees teams that had Yogi on the roster. Any baseball fan will be thrilled to see the bats beloning to the 1927 Yankees' "Murderer's Row"!
The Yogi Berra museum is suitable for fans of all ages, and there are interactive exhibits for kids to enjoy, too.
All of that exploring is sure to work up an appetite, so when you leave the musuem, head on a short drive to Applegate Farm.
Applegate serves up some of the best homemade ice cream in the state. Much like the Yogi Berra museum, a trip to this old-school ice cream stand will make you feel like you've stepped back in time.
Enjoy a scoop or two of their fresh flavors and reflect on all the fun you had today -- if this isn't the sweetest New Jersey day trip idea, I'm not sure what is!
