Go Nuts for the Nutella Flavor at Ice Cream by Mike

Whether you’re a fan of classic vanilla or you’re the type to go all out with a two-scoop hot fudge sundae, you’ll find all of your favorite ice cream creations at Ice Cream by Mike. Unlike many other ice cream shops, however, this Bergen County favorite makes all of its premium flavors using only all-natural ingredients, which makes you feel good about letting yourself indulge.

There are flavors like the popular Nutella, chocolate toasted almond, and classic strawberry made from fresh, local strawberries only when they’re in season, as well as a wide variety of other flavors that change from day to day. You can order your ice cream in a cup or a cone, or if you’re in the mood for something more elaborate, go for a sundae or a fresh-made chocolate malt.

While it may be a bit difficult to spot from the outside, Ice Cream by Mike is a locals-only favorite that you’ll be happy to stumble upon.

Step Back in Time With a Visit to the Steuben House

Let yourself be immersed in history, legend, and lore at the famous Steuben House, located right here in Bergen County. Built in 1752 in the mill settlement town of New Bridge, along the banks of the Hackensack River, the grand Steuben House stands as a national and local landmark, known to have played a critical role in the American Revolution.

Due to its key strategic location during the Revolutionary War, the Steuben House functioned as a fort, military headquarters, and an intelligence-gathering location. In 1780, George Washington himself used the Steuben House as headquarters, and the house is known to have survived more of the American Revolution than any other home in America. It is now preserved by the state of New Jersey and is open to the public.

Constructed of Bergen Dutch sandstone and filled with grand fireplaces, winding staircases, and hand-crafted details, the Steuben House is a sight to see both inside and out. Visit the website for the full history of the famous house, and plan your visit to this iconic and legendary home in New Bridge!
