Are you still thinking of Christmas gift ideas? Because that was me a couple weeks ago. It’s hard to think of a genuinely good gift that you know will be used and not tossed aside in a corner after just a few days… especially a toy! In fact, according to best-selling author and psychologist, Oliver James, kids value experiences, travel, and quality time more than toys.
So, I found these 3 unique and local experiences that you can gift to kid or an adult this holiday season and make their Christmas super special!
Located just outside of Trenton in Berlin county, this construction themed amusement park offers attractions for both kids and adults. You can ride, drive, and operate heavy machinery while being supervised and monitored by trusted staff. Some really neat rides include demolition trucks and bulldozers.

There are tons of places across the tri-state area where you can find flying lessons, but Eagles View Aviation located at the Monmouth Executive Airport in Monmouth County offers lessons for students ranging from ages 8 to 78! In fact, kids from ages 8-17 living in Wall township, are eligible for a free discovery flight lesson!
