My first stop was Longstreet Farm, which for those reading this that are from Northern Jersey like myself - is kind of like a place we have around here called Fosterfierlds. Its a historic farm with animals and people(actors) walking around in period costumes and doing period-like activities and jobs around the farm.
Next we drove about 15 minutes to the Monmouth Battlefield State Park. I had heard great things about his place, but to be honest I was rather disappointed. They had a visitor's map but 1) nothing was really within walking distance 2) the sites on the map were mostly what use to be there. 3) there were virtually no roads to drive on in the park so you had to drive around the perimeter, crossing and switching highways. Ah, well... I guess I never would have known unless I went to check it out. Here are some of the few photos I took there:
