Once a turbulent battlefield during the Revolutionary War, the hilly farmland setting of New Jersey’s Monmouth Battlefield is now better recognized as a peaceful state park. Visitors are welcome to participate in activities like hiking, apple picking, bird watching, and horseback riding, and with a landscape that offers everything from wooded paths to open meadows. After a long day of exploring, the only thing left to do is choose the perfect picnic spot.
