New Jersey: Here Is Our Most Popular Winter Destination
When planning a winter adventure, sometimes the best place to go is right in your home state. Sure, you can travel to the mountains or escape the cold to warm beaches. However, Reader’s Digest recently highlighted the best winter destination all across the country, and in New Jersey, it’s within a historical district.
The winter season in the United States is perhaps the time that offers the largest range of getaway vacation types. Of course, you have those that crave that 80-degree sunshine where you get a taste of a scene opposite of what you are experiencing at home. In Massachusetts, heading down south to Florida or to a tropical resort for winter break is a very common trip. In addition to that, ski trips are equally as popular. Health and wellness researchers Innerbody recently said that the most common travel destination for residents of the Bay State is heading to New York. However, Innerbody also said, “People in 45 of 50 states (plus the District of Columbia) are most interested in traveling within their own state this winter.”
This point compliments Reader’s Digest feature that details a Hunterdon County town in New Jersey named the best winter destination in the state.
“Lambertville has been rediscovered as a regional destination,” their town website states. The region is best known for being a historical mark of George Washington, as he even slept at the Holcombe Farmstead. He also crossed the Delaware River in 1776 into New Jersey, a few miles south Lambertville.
Presently, Lambertville has approximately 4,000 residents. NJ.com shared that in 2013, Forbes named Lambertville one of the 15 prettiest towns in America. Five serene parks are scattered throughout the area. There are plenty of tree-lined streets to walk that provide excellent views of the river as well.
If traveling to Lambertville is in your plans for this winter, NJ.com also ranked their 11 best restaurants. They have everything from fine dining to pizza shops to coffee at Lambertville Trading Company.
