  • This is about as exciting as it gets...

    Sad but true... there's not a lot to do around here. The parks are about as much excitement you are going to find. And this particular park? Well, watch out for attack geese and poop everywhere. This is a rural community, so except for a few mediocre bars, there is not much to do execpt hop in the car and drive to Philalphia. There are a couple...

Vineland Restaurants

  • Just another Italian Restaurant

    Casa Dori is another one of my mom's favorite places to eat. Since she's a regular she has has befriended the owner and likes the intimacy. The restaurant has gotten decent reviews from local food critics. But personally, I don't know what people see in this place. Casa Dori is just another Italian-American restaurant, which we have a ton of in...

  • Fantastic AUTHENTIC Italian food

    I was shocked the first time I entered Martino's. The building had once been the convience store I bought danishes and subs at when I was in high school, but now... it's a gorgeous little restaurant. It's very different than other restaurants in Vineland. It has a distinctly European feel, with beautiful murals on the walls, hand tiled floors,...

  • Delicious, authentic Puerto Rican food

    Downtown Buffet is owned and operated by the same guy who runs Downtown Deli. It has a lot of the same foods with much more to choose from. In addition to the hot foods, there are cold Puerto Rican salads, green salad, desserts and icec cream and some American foods on the buffet as well. You pay at the door about $9 for adults, $5 for kids under...

  • Authentic Mexican Bakery and Taqueria

    Puebla is another example or a real authentic place in Vineland where having a Spanish dictionary would come in handy. I went into this place one day out of desperation-- it has an unimpressive exterior, but it was 90 degrees and my 4 year old was whining she was thirsty while we were running errands downtown. Now I am very glad I took a chance....

  • Upscale Italian

    The Garden Room is a relatively new restaurant in Vineland. Despite the excessive number of Italian restaurants in Vineland, it has secured a position as one of the best in the area. Despite it's unassuming location in a strip mall in East Vineland, the interior is very charming and cozy. Dimly lit and intimate, the Garden Room is a nice placefor...

  • Lots of National Restaraunt Chains

    I shall lump Vineland and Millville together, since the commercial districts between the two towns is seamless. I personally do not recommend dining at national franchise restaurants, but some people prefer to eat at places they are familiar with. It is soley for their benefit that I include this information. Applebee's-psuedo-bistro, actually not...

  • Awesome Inexpensive Greek Food

    When I worked next door, I ate at the Olympia almost every day. Their food is awesome! Anything on the lunch special menu is great! The Olympia has 6 week cycle lunch menu that changes every week. In addition they have a lunch special for everyday. This place is PACKED every day at lunchtime because the prices are so good and the food is great. You...

  • Authentic Mexican

    Cinco de Mayo is a little "mom & pop" Mexican Restaurant and Grocery Store that caters to the local Mexican population. There isn't much in the way of ambiance, but the food is authentic, outstanding and cheap! The service is great and the staff is friendly and helpful. Since none of the staff speak fluent English, ordering off the menu is an...

  • Super-fantastic subs and hoagies!

    Vineland is very lucky to have a specialty Italian Deli. They make outstanding lunchmeat subs on wonderful fresh bread that are positively heaping with high-quality lunchmeat, cheese and toppings. Forget about Quiznos, SubWay or WaWa. Giovanni's are less expensive, way bigger and way tastier. I really do not know how the sell them at the price they...

  • Great place to hang out

    --CURRENTLY CLOSED---Unknown at this time if the Greek Islands will reopen.Greek Islands is a restaurant/bar near the Cumberland Mall. The food is okay, but the bar is what's worth noting. Unfortunately they're only open til 1 am because of a city ordinance, but the bar has a really nice atmosphere, good drinks, friendly people and good...

  • Sport themed bar

    This is a good bar that the fraternity types will like. It's clean and safe (one of the few bars in the area that hasn't had major "incidents" with violence.) Good Sports is located in East Vineland, in the middle of farmland, so there are no worries about seedy characters hanging around. This is a nice place to gather, watch a game, play some...

Vineland Transportation

  • You need a car to get around!

    Vineland is a huge town and the bus only traverses the 3 major arteries in town. It's virtually impossible to get around without a car, unless you plan to take a cab. Vineland is very easy to get to via Route 55, which runs parallel with the major artery in Vineland, Route 47. Route 55 runs north/south along Vineland and has 5 exits spaced from one...

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

Vineland Shopping

    U-Sell flea Market is a fun place to visit on a nice day. It varies, but sometimes there are a LOT of vendors, selling everything: antiques, produce, collectibles, clothes, plants and more. Open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Used and new items. Probably not much

  • Outrageous Puerto Rican Pastries

    La Hacienda is another one of Vineland's best kept secrets!!! Love this place. They make really delicious pastries and baked goods. Oh yum! And in the summer time they sell homemade Puerto Rican ice cream in wonderful tropical flavors. It's sort of a cross between ice-cream and water-ice, I'm not sure what the right name for it is. Try a scoop of...

Vineland Local Customs

  • We eat a lot of Bagels

    I don't really know why, but people in this area really eat a lot of bagels. If you've never had a bagel from the Northeastern United States before, you might be pleasantly suprised. They are different than the nasty frozen one you buy at the market. If you have ever been to the national chain Einstein Brothers, then you know how good NY style...

  • 50's style food drive-in

    Stewart's Drive-in isn't known for culinary excellence, but rather for nostalgia and novelty. It's a "NJ thing." There are locations in several other states on the east coast as well. The family has to go at least once each summer. Stewart's is a 50's styled eatery where you drive up and the hottie waitresses (called carhops) take your order in...

Vineland Warnings and Dangers

  • Center City

    The areas in center city aren't particularly safe... especially in the 'grid' created by Delsea Drive & East Avenue, Park Avenue & Chestnut Avenue. The numbered streets in the vecinity of the Boulevard (where the train tracks are) in town are best avoided unless you're looking to get mugged or score drugs. Only thing worth stopping for is some good...

    Delsea Drive (Route 47) is a VERY dangerous road. It's an important thoroughfare and hard to avoid, but use caution-- south jersey drivers are idiots and are agressive drivers. Delsea Drive has one of the highest death tolls in the nation.

Vineland Off The Beaten Path

  • Art Deco Landis Theatre

    The Landis Theatre located in the Mori Brothers Building on the 800 block of Landis Ave is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The theatre, built in the 20's is in the "moderne" architectural style (read: Art Deco). Although it has been closed for a number of years now, I do have memories of it being open when I was a child. Only 3...

  • Swimming holes, sandwashes & more

    There are also a lot of good (illegal) swimming holes (sandwashes) to swim at. In South Jersey, old sand quarries are abundant. They are dangerous* (see footnote) but fun, and most of them the water is very cold and clear. You must ALWAYS swim with a group in one of these places. There are drownings every year at these places because sandwashes are...

Vineland Favorites

  • asturnut's Profile Photo

    by asturnut Written Oct 5, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: I grew up in the Latino part of Vineland, center city, and couldn't help but embrace these people, their language and culture. I always remember as neighbors celebrated with friends, especially on hot summer days, hearing lots of laughter and loud salsa and merengue music drifting through the air. And of course, the aroma of rice and beans was never far behind... (My favorite part about growing up in that neighborhood was the food! I swear there is a little Puerto Rican eatery or shop on almost every block. If you ever come to Vineland, find one of these places to eat-- anywhere between 8th and 2nd Streets and Landis and Chestnut Avenues.)
