The County's two-dozen parks have educational programs and guided hiking tours and fitness trails and Clinton, NJ and Flemington have guided walking tours. Hunterdon County and greater Skylands Region explore eco-tourism, no matter the season. Outdoor activities include a pre-holiday season house tour and a summer garden tour.
The Annual New Jersey HorseXpo each spring, or the North East Canoe & Kayak Symposium in the summer, and the Autumn (horse) Classic link bring enthusiasts from around the nation. Revelation Generation, a Christian Youth Concert draws thousands of young spiritual music devotees each fall to Kingwood Township.
