Yurts at Allaire State Park | Wall Township/Farmingdale, New Jersey

 
Yurts at Allaire State Park

Yurts At Allaire State Park 


Traditional yurts used by nomads in Asia are usually made with felt or wool. Yurts have been adapted for camping in the United States. 

Only four campgrounds in New Jersey have yurts. Allaire State Park is one of them. 

These structures are made of high-tech materials. It is a circular tent built on a wood frame, featuring wood floors, a deck and Plexiglas skylight. 

 

Each yurt has a lockable wood door, window screens and flaps, and two double-deck bunks, which sleep up to four people. Cooking facilities, water and restroom facilities are usually within walking distance. 

 

This makes it a more practical alternative to a regular tent, which must be set up and taken down each day, not to mention that it is far more comfortable to sleep on a real bed, and to move around more freely. 


I wrote about this beautiful park and its historic village with its unusual chapel and Pine Creek Railroad last year. 
 
The park also includes camping facilities, including yurts.

Diners of New Jersey | Jersey Shore Edition

Diner

New Jersey is considered the diner capital of the world

 

There are hundreds of diners in the state, and they are an integral part of the New Jersey dining experience. 

 

Many are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

 

The diner in the top photo is the Marvis Diner in Wildwood, New Jersey. 

 
This week I am posting photos of diners I have visited located near or at the Jersey shore. 

 

Next is the Princess Maria Diner in Wall Township:

In  the Wildwoods, many of the buildings are in the Doo-Wop Style, or Googie Architecture,  

 

The top photo of the Marvis Diner is an example of that.

There is also the Doo Wop Diner on the Wildwood boardwalk:

The Historic Village at Allaire | Wall Township/Farmingdale, New Jersey

The Historic Village at Allaire


The Historic Village of Allaire

 

In last week's post, I showed you the pretty little chapel at The Historic Village at Allaire, the historic town in Monmouth County, New Jersey. 

 

Workers at the Howell Iron Works lived in this self-contained little village. 

Allaire Village is a peaceful and beautiful little place, and a wonderful day trip for the whole family. 

 

On the weekends there are docents in period costume to tell you all about the village, and you can take a trip on the Pine Creek Railroad!

The Chapel At The Historic Village at Allaire | Wall Township/Farmingdale, New Jersey

The Chapel at Allaire Village


The Unusual Chapel At The Historic Village of Allaire

 

The Historic Village at Allaire is a historic bog iron town located in Allaire State Park in Monmouth County, New Jersey. 

 

James P. Allaire created the village to house his workers at Howell Iron works from the 1860’s to the 1840’s.

The village was a place where the workers never had to leave to live a whole life within the village. 

 

The beautiful and simple little chapel is the most famous building in the village. 

 

The church is unusual because the bell tower was placed in the back of the church instead of in the front. 

 

That was because it was too heavy for the front part of the church.
