Lombardi’s claims to be the first and oldest pizzeria in America, having opened in 1905. The issue with Lombardi’s claim is that it closed in 1984 and didn’t open again until 10 years later, in a new location.
Lombardi’s does make excellent pies and I definitely recommend a visit if you’re in NYC.
During the visit to Teterboro, I had also hoped to visit the Aviation Hall of Fame & Museum of New Jersey after the run. However, it was a really hot day and we were exhausted from the race, so we passed.
(I used some of my free FREE Spirit miles from their 1,000,000,000 miles giveaway over the summer. Check out my post about Spirit’s State of the Hate Report and find out a little about the promo. If you didn’t claim your share of the miles, you can still do so- a link where to go is in the post.)
I recently wrote about America’s Wackiest Theme Parks which was based on an article from Yahoo Travel. While I don’t enjoy rides and am not much of a theme park fan, a few parks from the list sounded like they could be a lot of fun.
A couple of days after writing my post, I was happy to get invited to a park from the list that (I’d probably say) I most wanted to visit. Best of all, it happened to be only around a 2 hour drive from home!
In July 2012 Kim and I ran in the Teterboro Airport 5K Runway Run in New Jersey. For some reason or another, I never wrote a post or shared my photos from the race. After writing about the date being announced for the 2013 JFK Runway Run it inspired me to share some photos from the Teterboro 5K.
At Tererboro, strollers were not allowed on the runway so Lucas had to sit this race out. Kim waited to sign up for the run on race day just to be sure somebody would be willing to watch Lucas. Luckily our sister-in-law was up to the task (not so hard since Lucas slept the whole time) and Kim got to run!
Lucy is a quick drive from Atlantic City and designated a National Historic Landmark.
If you pay for the tour, you get to go inside by climbing up a staircase inside one of Lucy’s legs. Inside there is a small museum with various artifacts. There are also some nice panoramic views from the howdah (the canopy seat on top of the elephant)
