Winter Activities Near Deptford, NJ
Winter can sometimes be a bit of a bummer. Depending on where you live, things close for the season, people hibernate as much as possible, and it can be a bit of a struggle to find entertainment outside the home. Thankfully, there are plenty of winter activities near Deptford, NJ, so when you choose to call Stonybrook your new home, you’ll never want for something to do.

That’s because, every year for the last 25 years, set against the backdrop of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and Delaware River, is the Blue Cross RiverRink WinterfestThis is the place to be whenever you have free time and some extra energy to exert during the winter months.

The centerpiece of this winter wonderland is a giant ice skating rink on which you can showcase your Olympic-level skills. (Or maybe just your ability to stay vertical on the slick surface.) Don’t worry if you don’t have your own skates; rentals are available.

If skating isn’t your thing, don’t worry. There’s plenty more to do on solid, stable ground, including indulging in boatloads of delectable goodies.

Operated by Philadelphia superstar chef Jose Garces, Village Burger cooks up juicy burgers—including the Impossible Burger, made from a deceptively beef-like all-veggie patty—and fried comfort foods, like pierogies and cheese fries.

Stop by Franklin Fountain if, despite the biting chill in the air, you can’t resist the sweet temptation of a creamy scoop or two of ice cream. Don’t worry, you can warm back up with a piping hot cup of hot chocolate, or even have that ice cream served on top of a freshly made hot waffle.

But if your way to fend off the bitter cold is to sip on a libation or two, there are two bars here that serve an array of local craft beers. This year, by popular demand, Sly Fox Brewery's Lodge Cabin Lager makes a resurgence. You’ll also find spiked hot chocolate and apple cider from Linvilla Orchards.

As you can see, there’s no need to become a hermit just because the mercury levels dip a little lower this time of year. Winter activities near Deptford, NJ, are bountiful and guaranteed to make you eager to throw on a scarf and gloves and venture out into the world.
