We may finally be turning the page on the colder weather with temperatures expected to get close to 80 degrees by early next week. So, it may be a good idea to put away your gloves and winter gear and break out your picnic basket.

Here are a few ideal picnic spots in South Jersey, if you're looking to get out of the house, and enjoy a good meal outside!

    Leaming's Run Garden - Cape May

    Here's a perfect spot to have a meal, get in a walk, and take in the scenery of woodlands and wetlands. Leaming's Run Garden is located on Rt. 9 in Cape May Court House.

    Sayen House & Gardens - Hamilton Township

    Sayen House and Gardens is situated in historic Hamilton Square. It's the perfect spot for a picnic, especially if you're a nature lover or history buff!

    Birch Grove Park - Northfield

    This is my favorite go to spot, especially if things get a little hectic here at the Lite Rock studio. It's a great place to have a bite, enjoy a long walk, and look at the beautiful scenery. Birch Grove Park is located on Burton Avenue in Northfield.

    Cape May Point State Park - Cape May

    This is an ideal spot for a family picnic. What better way to walk off your food then climbing the 199 steps to the top of the Cape May Lighthouse.
