The summer season always seems to come and go in the blink of an eye. Before you know it, autumn will arrive and residents of Butler, Kinnelon, and Bloomingdale will be left wondering where all the time went.

Well, you can still find time to get to some great summer activities and day trips around Butler, Kinnelon, and Bloomingdale before summer's end. Read on for some ideas.

Fishing at the Butler Reservoir

Located just over 2 miles from Kinnelon, you can enjoy the last few days of summer on the water enjoying some fishing. No matter what type of fisherman you are – spinning, fly fishing, or bait casting -you'll find a nice variety of fish that includes rainbow trout, bullhead, small and largemouth bass, and northern pike.

Fishing in the Butler Reservoir can be a relaxing day for you and your thoughts or you can bring along the whole family for a fun day trip. Either way, you'll get your fishing in while you still can.

New Jersey Botanical Gardens

Make the short drive from Butler, Kinnelon, or Bloomingdale to the New Jersey Botanical Gardens in Ringwood State Park. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Botanical Gardens are a perfect day trip, as you and your friends and family can experience the scenic views from the top of Mount Defiance, walk the winding paths through the woods, or take the Skylands Manor tour. There's a lot to see with 96 acres of specialty gardens and 1,000 acres of woodlands surrounding the area.

The New Jersey Botanical Garden is located at 2 Morris Rd, Ringwood, NJ 07456.
