Things to Do in Bergen County Week of August 31

Weekly Events  / 

We rounded up the best things to do in Bergen County and beyond on our weekend PLAYlist!
 
Sponsored Post: You don’t have to be from the mid-west or the south or another country to enjoy a day in New York city. You don’t have to ride a big bus or travel in a group. You don’t even have to bring your camera or wear your comfortable shoes if you don’t want. Go ahead and wear your pumps just to buck the tourist stereotype, but make sure you get out and enjoy summer in the city. NY Waterway is making this easy by letting Kids Ride Free on their ferries from July 5th to September 4th. So, pack some snacks (no, not those ones, the ones they like) and plan a day of fun. You can get more schedule information here: http://www.nywaterway.com/ 800-53-FERRY (800-533-3779).
