Default What is there to do in/around Moorestown?

We are considering moving from the DC area to Moorestown. Other than Collingswood and Haddonfield, what is there to do at night when we get a babysitter? Where we live now there are multiple new shopping areas that are built to look main streets with restaurants and movie theaters and stores. Anything similar or is it mostly strip malls.

There are strip malls, malls, most towns have downtowns, lots of restaurants, & Center City Philadelphia. There are more things to do & places to go than you could possibly do. It's just a matter of zeroing in on what suits you.

Thanks Southbound! Anything specific? At this phase in my life, dinner and a movie and ice cream would be a big night out.

You're welcome MontCoGirl.

My favorite restaurant is in Haddonfield - Oriental Pearl.

Here's menus for an assortment of restaurants in South Jersey.

Haddonfield Menus – Restaurants in Haddonfield New Jersey - Findmymenus.com

Here's the Philadelphia Magazine website. Philadelphia Restaurants, Health, Events, Bars, Shopping - Philadelphia Magazine - phillymag.com

If you can think it up, you can probably find a place.

Oh, & remember, Moorestown is in South Jersey. Yes, you'll find some grumpy people, they're everywhere. but most people in South Jersey & Philly are friendly.

montco- There is a nice downtown IN Moorestown that has a wonderful ice cream parlor. Called Nelly Bly's. There is a movie theater at the Moorestown mall 45 minutes away by car. Dinner I would recommend Yokohama in Maple shade another 5 minutes away by car.

If you can think of it, it exists in this area. As for mainstreet style shopping, the most popular one is the Promenade in Marlton on Route 73. It is mostly retail, but they have a couple restraunts and an ice cream shop too.

As for movie theaters, there are 4 within 25 minutes of Moorestown. 2 of them are smaller theaters in Marlton on 73 and at the Moorestown Mall. The other 2 are larger multiplexes in Voorhees and Cherry Hill. The one in Voorhees is considered the nicest.

As for dining, just name it. Everything from small private BYOB's to large chains and everything in between. You want a $100 steak, you got it. You want a $5 chesseburger, got that too.

As for downtown Moorestown, it has some neat places, but it does turn into a bit of a ghost town at night. I wouldn't recommend planning an evening around visiting Main Street in Moorestown, but there is a ton to do in the immediate area.

Also, all of Philadelphia is only 20 minutes away.

Where are you from in the DC area? If the suburbs, then you'll find S. Jersey very similar to say Falls Church, Arlington, Fairfax, etc. Lots of shopping, restaurants, and NYC is just about two hours away if you travel up to exit 65 on I-295 and take the train directly to NYC. But, of course, do not overlook Philadelphia which is exceptionally close to Moorestown, Cherry Hill and most communities outside of Phily.

From her screen name, I'd say that she's in Montgomery County MD
