Getting to Know the Neighbors

Take a Walk on the Wild Side
There aren't too many small towns in New Jersey that come complete with their own zoos and River Edge is one of the few. Okay, the Bergen County Zoo may not technically be in town but it's walking distance from quite a few apartments in River Edge. Animal lovers will enjoy heading into the park to watch the exotic animals snooze while excited kids look on. Though it's a small zoo, its focus on conservation is helping boost wild populations of endangered animals across the country and around the world. Pretty cool!
Big City Living
Though there are plenty of things to do in River Edge, apartment renters who are looking for a little nightlife (or, as the case may be, an excess of it) can cross into New York to spend an evening in the City that Never Sleeps. In New York City, residents of River Edge can catch a Broadway show, dine in some of the most famous restaurants in the nation, cheer on the Yankees as they defeat their rivals once again, or simply get swept away by the enormity and fun of the city. For an easy weekend getaway, renters can even spend a night or two in New York to recharge their batteries on neon lights and late night dance parties.
The Great Outdoors
They don't call New Jersey The Garden State for nothing. Renters from River Edge will have ample opportunities to enjoy the beauty of nature without having to go far from home. The Van Saun County Park located just on the western edge of town, has tennis courts, walking trails, picnic areas, a fishing pond, and a number of sports fields. Kids (or the young at heart) can enjoy taking a ride on the carousel or on a real pony if they've brought along a few extra dollars. The banks of the Hackensack River are also great places for residents to go if they're hoping to catch a few fish for dinner. Even if the fish aren't biting, the river's edge still offers renters the opportunity to meet a few cool people in River Edge.
