Sparta NJ

My sister and I got roped into driving our elderly parents to an anniversary party that is taking place on a Sunday afternoon in August, in Sparta. We aren't going to the party, just dropping them off and picking them up afterwards. We live too far away to go home and come back for them. So, we're looking for something to do to kill 3-4 hours or so. The party starts around lunch time. We are completely unfamiliar with that part of NJ. Any suggestions for a leisurely lunch spot or a cute town to drive around that is close by? Maybe even a movie theater where we could see movie...

All suggestions are welcome. We are driving out there from around the Hamilton, NJ area. Is 2 hours realistic time wise for the drive?

Lake Hopatcong is supposed to be a nice area - I havent been, but that might be a place to research.

Haven't been in quite a while, but Lake Hopatcong is a public lake with swimming. Not much else there, AFAIK. See http://www.lkhopatcong.com/
