Bergen County

1. Take a date to the Alpine Lookout. There’s truly no better place to view the Hudson River and New York City than this popular overlook on the Palisades Interstate Park.

2. Walk across the George Washington Bridge. Be sure to look up at the 570-foot steel towers on your stroll.

3. Enjoy no sales tax on clothes and shoes at The Outlets at Bergen Town Center where you’ll also find a Bobby’s Burger Palace. Bobby, as in Flay.

4. Experience Bischoff’s in Teaneck. When an ice cream parlor open more than 80 years is constantly packed, you know it’s awesome.

5. Play golf at the Ridgewood Country Club. This famous green, designed by A.W. Tillinghast, is one of Bergen’s best courses of 27 holes.

16. Eat the thinnest crust pizza you’ve ever seen at Kinchley’s Tavern in Ramsey. A landmark still serving its ultra thin crust to devoted followers. If you feel adventurous, order the Garbage Pie.

17. Pitch a tent at Camp Tamarack at Ramapo Valley County Reservation after a long day of fishing and hiking.

18. Tap into a rotating collection of craft brews at Alementary Brewing Co and better yet, tap into the friendly staff’s knowledge of how they’re made.
