a day out exploring.  Today we stopped by the Lakewood Heritage Center and walked around.  Who knew there was so much to see?


They have quite a few areas to explore including a lake, outdoor amplitheatre, a town replica and an old farm.  

Anything vintage makes me happy and if you like the same kind of things you won’t be disappointed.

I need to keep an eye out for a concert that’s happening there because I would love to see it in all it’s glory.  

My favorite part of the day was the lake.  It was great to walk around it (there is a path that goes all the way around).  There are tons of place to take pictures and since it’s the furthest part of the park there usually aren’t many people around. 



Lakewood Heritage Center showcases the history of Lakewood and the many changes, inventions and lifestyles of the 20th century.

Located in Belmar Park, the museum has over 10 historic structures, 40,000 artifacts, rotating and permanent exhibits, a festival area and outdoor amphitheater which host a variety of events, and rental spaces for meetings and parties.

You can take a walking or guided tour of Lakewood Heritage Center’s 10 historic structures.  It’s also home to 40,000 artifacts, including Interurban Car No. 25. (I didn’t get to see this, maybe next time).  The 20th Century Emporium specializes in unique handmade and retro products. (We went after they closed so we didn’t get to see this up close just thru the window.)
