Marlton is a small, vibrant community nestled in Evesham, New Jersey, that is bustling with excitement and unique places to visit with family and friends. From an indoor inflatable trampoline park to historic dining, you don’t want to miss these five places if you’re in the area:

The Promenade

Looking for a top-of-the-line shopping experience? Look no further than The Promenade at Sagemore. With a wide range of popular stores — including Apple, Brooks Brothers and Pottery Barn — in an outdoor shopping environment, this popular destination is the best place around to kick off the holiday season. In fact, you can even bring your pet for a pic with St. Nick on Sunday, Dec. 4, from 9 a.m. to noon!

The Promenade also offers some delicious post-shopping restaurant options like P.F. Chang’s, BRIO Tuscan Grille, Redstone American Grill and Zoe’s Kitchen.

Pump It Up Party

Do you have over-energetic kids who are constantly bouncing off the walls? Well, here’s a fun solution — Pump It Up Party is a place where they can jump to their hearts' content on giant inflatable trampolines! The best part? You don’t need to schedule a birthday party in order to use it. Come by during Open Jump and enjoy this unique indoor playground. Open Jump is for everyone (kids over age 12) and takes place multiple times throughout the month. Find out when the next one is here!

Special events are also offered throughout the year. For the holidays, you won’t want to miss Jump with Santa from 5:30-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7 and 14. This event is sure to be one of your kid’s favorite holiday-time memories!

Escape Room Challenge

Love puzzles and the thrill of adventure? Marlton has all that — packed into one fun place! The Escape Room Challenge has two rooms — Special Agent and The Heist. The Special Agent room allows you to become a secret agent with only an hour to complete an important mission — and failure can cost you and your agents your lives (not literally, though, don’t worry). Or you can work your way through a bunch of security obstacles with your friends and steal a huge prize worth millions of dollars in The Heist room.

This is the perfect event for your family and friends and even offers educational team-building and communication skills. So head over to the Escape Room Challenge and see if your group has what it takes to escape!

The Marlton Tavern

History and delicious cuisine are combined at the Marlton Tavern. Built in 1898, it’s set in a Victorian-style home that once belonged to one of Marlton Village’s most prosperous citizens, making it a great place to visit for the history buff (and food lover).

Perfect for a family lunch or dinner with friends, the Marlton Tavern’s menu has all the favorites you would expect to find at your local tavern along with a fantastic cocktail menu. Be sure to stop by between 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and enjoy homemade delicacies and $5 bloody marys at Sunday brunch!

And it doesn’t stop there — the tavern has upcoming events you need to mark on your calendar. Every Sunday, kids eat free, and Tuesdays are karaoke night. Every Saturday features live music, and Fridays feature songs from your favorite flashback hits! So if you’re looking for great food, a historic atmosphere and live music — you definitely need to go to the Marlton Tavern!

Memorial Park

If you’re looking to add some nature to your day, Memorial Park is an ideal place to do it. With two playgrounds, a dog park for your best friend and track and soccer fields for sports lovers, this park offers the perfect setting to exercise and enjoy the great outdoors.

These are only a few of the places you’ll want to experience during your time here. As you explore this special town, there’s no doubt you’ll discover why Marlton is not only a wonderful place to visit – but also to call "home."
