If you're looking for a relaxing way to spend a Saturday or Sunday this spring, I want to suggest historic Smithville Village. It was originally a stagecoach stop as far back as 1787 at the original Smithville Inn. There are about 60 shops and restaurants in the village along with a few rides for kids and adults.

It's a quaint little spot off Rt. 9 in Galloway Township and easily accessible from exit 44 of the Garden State Parkway. I've only discovered it a couple of years ago and went with some family again this past weekend.
