Walk of the Town!

We meet once a month in a different town in NJ, go on a one-hour walk, explore the town, notice architecture, history, neighborhoods and end up with coffee at a local café. Each group member is welcome to show the group their own town, and share their own favorite spots and coffee places, on one of these walks. In case it's a very small town, it may include a short nature trail close to town, so don't forget to wear comfortable shoes.  Contact Anna at
