The town of Eatontown, New Jersey gets its name from Thomas Eaton. He was an early settler in the area and built a mill around 1670. Another historic aspect people know Eatontown for is that, from 1917 through 2011, the United States Army operated Fort Monmouth in the area.
Today, Eatontown is a vibrant community located just west of the New Jersey shore. According to the 2010 Census, the population is just over 12,000.
There are plenty of fun activities in and around the borough. If you are looking for a way to blow off some steam, head to Stumpy’s Hatchet House. At this adults-only establishment (21 and over), you can throw hatchets to your heart’s content. Go with a group and have an unforgettable experience.
For a more family-friendly activity, try Monster Mini Golf, where it is like Halloween every day. Maneuver through the glowing black light course and try to get a hole in one.
Head to Bliss Price Arboretum and Wildlife Sanctuary to spend a day close to nature. This beautiful outdoor area is the local tree nursery and features walking paths where you can spot a range of native, local wildlife. It is open daily from dawn to dusk and is located at the north end of Wykcoff Road.
