You’ve been working hard for the last few weeks. You go to work before the kids are off to school and when you get home, they’re already asleep. This weekend, why not make up for some of the time lost and spend quality time with the whole family?
You don’t need to venture too far or visit an exotic location to have some good, old-fashioned fun with your loved ones. Bergen County has some neat attractions that you can check out with the whole gang. To make the whole affair more special, you can book a Bergen County limousine service.
